2016 Nissan LEAF

Nissan today introduced a new larger 30kWh battery, to be installed on the 2016 LEAF SV and SL models.  The new battery will allow the LEAF to go up to 107 miles on a single charge, more than 27 percent improvement over the 84 miles traveling range from the previous 24 kWh battery.

The new 30 kWh battery contains 8 cells per module (192 cells total), compared to 4 cells per module in the 24 kWh battery (192 cells total).  Stuffing more cells in each model, the “larger” 30kWh battery has the same size and just weighs about 46 lbs. more than the 24 kWh battery.

Furthermore, the new battery has better charging performance.  It can be quick-charged to 80 percent in approximately 30 minutes, about 22 percent more miles of range compared to a 30-minute quick charge on the 24 kWh battery.

As mentioned above, the new battery will come standard in the LEAF SV and SL models.  The LEAF S model will still be equipped the previous 24kWh battery.

The new battery is one of many improvements for the 2016 LEAF.  See press release for more details.
