Nissan Motor Companyâ€™s official website has revealed that the all-new Leaf will feature significant changes according to Andy Mohr Avon Nissan, a Nissan dealership in Indianapolis, Indiana. Information surrounding the rumored to be upgraded 2016 model were obtained and reported independently by Andy Mohr Avon Nissan.
The Nissan Leaf was released back in late 2010 to the Japanese and US markets. It garnered a lot of attention, as it became the first electric vehicle produced by a commercial automaker to hit the market. The Leaf is still the leading electric vehicle available worldwide. It remains to be seen what changes are made for the all-new model.
According to Andy Mohr Avon Nissan, the 2016 Leaf will deliver a longer driving range of up to 110 miles (approx. 177km) in the US as a result of a battery that offers an increase of 25% capacity from the current model.
The current Leaf for the US market generates up to 84 miles (approx. 135km) on a single recharge. If the rumors are true, the 2016 model will offer 30% more driving range for enhanced practicality.
