Long range 60kWh rumored priced

Some preliminary pricing sheets from Nissan are suggesting the long range E Plus model to cost around $5500 more than the 40 KwH variants. If this is true, that means the entry level long range version will cost a little over $36,000 in S trim. On the top end this could mean around $42,500 for the SL. Production is expected to start in January. https://www.carscoops.com/2018/10/ni...-around-36000/

This is a fairly modest price bump considering the improvement to range, not to mention an proper thermal management system. Hopefully this is something that Nissan makes standard across the lineup moving forward.

Now that its finally been developed, I don't know they wouldn't use it across all trims/versions. Even if that means a slight cost increase even on the base model, I think it will help to ease concerns over battery degradation.

I like these figures because very soon Toyota will be preparing a Corolla PHEV and maybe a full electric model. I suspect this is why we got a Corolla hatch this time around.

The ability to successively quick charge, will also allow for the Leaf to be more used as a primary vehicle as opposed to supplementary. It doesn't make sense for a brand new EV to be restricted to one quick charge a day.

No car maker has a choice because demand for taking multiple quick charges will only increase rapidly beyond their ability to adjust while demand peaks.
Car sharing and ride sharing services present that great challenge and will continue to do so once cars are fully autonomous.

You are right because a lot of people seem to be buying the Leaf as a secondary vehicle alongside an ICE, but I think that's common amongst most electrics. Unless you live in state like Cali, where it's almost just as practical to drive/charge.

On that note it would be great if there was a tool that helps to see how practical it would be to own an EV for whatever zipcode someone enters.
The playing field is always improving and not always can we stay on top of everything and planning routes is at the forefront of this.
