2019 Nissan Leaf Could Get 225+ Miles Range?

Rumors from AutoEvolution says the 2019 Nissan Leaf could get 225+ miles range and compete against the likes of the Chevy Bolt and Tesla Model 3. Maybe I'll skip the 2nd gen Leaf if these rumors are true because around 200 miles seems to be the new industry standard and why settle?

You have to question what range you need and what other features you need. Someone who lives in the city might find the Leaf's range to be more than adequate and that it has better characteristics than the Bolt or Tesla.

Well I've waited this long and Jalopnik says Nissan is planning to release a 200+ mile range Leaf for 2019. Maybe I'll spring for a cheap Bolt by then, but I may just wait for the Leaf because it simply looks a lot better IMO. Even better, it may be able to use a DC fast-charging rate of 100 kW, so less time needed per charge if you can find those fast chargers.

I just hope you're doing the math on what it will cost to charge because depending on where yo live it could be slightly cheaper than a gasoline car and in the end not exactly worth it. Unless you're after the tech more than anything else.

Electricity is cheap, especially during off hours so the savings in fuel is monumental. My current monthly gas bill for the car is around $140, so a Leaf would be a huge improvement. Add on incentives and it shouldn't be that expensive to purchase a 225+ miles Leaf. Maybe by the time it goes on sale in 2019, the range will be even better than expected because the range provided by Jalopnik is just an estimate.

Even with those savings off peak the overall saving depending where you live can either be slightly cheaper than a gasoline car or enough to have some decent pay off in the end. So far people are getting these more for the want of tech and saving the world than to save money.
