The big reveal of the new Nissan Leaf is due tomorrow, about 1am to be specific I believe. I've been waiting for a while but I'm sadly expecting to be disappointed. I think the next step for EVs is to crack the real life 200 mile mark and all the leaked info seems to point towards the Leaf only managing around 160. I know the usual sentiment applies, how often do I actually need to drive that far in one go, but the fact is that only bumping from 30kwh to 40kwh is underwhelming. I live in Ireland and the charging infrastructure (whilst currently free) is horribly patchy and poorly maintained. Relying on it is not fun and considering that charges are expected to arrive in the next year or so and at ridiculous levels, things could get very sticky very fast. With the 28kwh Ioniq already outperforming the 30kwh Leaf, if a 40kwh Ioniq arrives as speculated within a year Nissan could be completely left for dead. On a plus side, the car looks dramatically better than the original!
