LEAF range will grow –

Nissan has promised its LEAF electric vehicle will reach a real-world 200km driving range within three years, matching BMW’s claim for the new i3.

While the European NEDC testing regime already gives the LEAF a 199km range, the US EPA rating is a more realistic 135km — although real-world range can vary significantly either side of that.

BMW says the i3’s practical range is up to 160km but can be extended to 200km via economy driving modes. Its NEDC rating is 190km and there is no EPA rating yet.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Frankfurt auto show, Nissan Executive Vice-President and product panning chief Andy Palmer said the LEAF would improves to a 200km range before the original is replaced in about 2016.
