2016 Nissan Leaf S Sheds the 24 kWh Battery, Gets New 30 kWh Pack and Bumped Price
Price goes over the psychological $30,000 limit
Nissan has silently ditched the 24 kWh battery pack offered by the Leaf S and decided to upgrade the hardware to a 30 kWh battery like it did earlier this year for the Leaf SV and SL models, which now saw an EPA-rated range increase from 84 to 107 miles.
The same outlet cites a Nissan North America PR representative who also confirms the EV's starting price: $32,450, before any incentives.
However, those in for a (now discontinued) 24-kWh Nissan Leaf will be assisted in the search and acquisition process by a Nissan dealership.
