The Nissan Leaf Plus will hit dealer lots this month.
Nissan announced official pricing for the 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus, now with a 62 kWh battery and 226-mile range. Set to go on sale this month, Nissan will sell the Leaf Plus alongside the standard model. The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus starts at $37,445 — a $6,560 premium on the standard model.
Of course, the Plus model rings in at that price before any applicable federal and state tax credits on electric cars.
For that price, the larger battery (against the standard model’s 40 kWh pack) offers 76 miles more range. The standard model offers 150 miles between charging. The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus also offers up 214 horsepower from its electric motor, compared to the 40 kWh version’s 147 horsepower. The new powertrain in the Leaf Plus also offers a standard 100 kW charging system, allowing owners to charge up faster.
The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus comes in three trim levels: S Plus, SV Plus and SL Plus. Added to the three trims on the normal model, there are now six in total across the Leaf lineup. The 2019 Nissan Leaf range comes with an 8-year/100,000-mile battery pack warranty, regardless of the model.

Changes from the standard model the Leaf Plus are subtle, starting with a revised front fascia. The Plus has blue headlights and an “e+” logo on the bottom of the charging port lid. A badge on the back also distinguishes the Plus model. Apart form that, the car looks virtually the same as the standard Nissan Leaf.
This car competes directly against the Tesla Model 3, which just released in its least expensive “Standard Range” form. Offering up 220 to 240 miles of range for a more competitive price than the Nissan Leaf Plus, it may not be long before we see those prices creep down a bit. Stay tuned for more updates!
