Report: Expect more battery life and increased range for the next-gen Nissan LEAF

AutomotiveNews¬†received a brief scoop regarding the 2016 Nissan LEAF, which is destined to apparently receive a new lithium-ion battery with a 30 kWh capacity, versus the current model’s 24 kWh rating.

This also means the electric motor will gain some extra power, though how much wasn’t exactly noted.

Thanks also to the extra power, Nissan’s hoping for an estimated EPA range of around 125 miles, which is a large improvement over the current model’s rating of around 84 miles. Real-world estimations would most likely hover around the 105-110 mile figure.
