Next Nissan Leaf, Infiniti EV to have “game changing” battery technology | CarAdvice

Nissan is working on a “game changing” new chemistry for its electric vehicle batteries that could double the range of its next-generationLeaf and other future EVs.

Nissan chief planning officer and the man in charge of the company’s electric vehicle operations, Andy Palmer, told Automotive News any new battery would need to provide a range of at least 300km to be competitive with upcoming hydrogen fuel cell cars, though declined to give an iron-clad range target for the new battery type. The current Leaf can manage a maximum of 170km between charges.

Nissan is also working on upgrades to the battery pack (pictured below) used in the current-generation Leaf. Changes that improve battery life in hot climates are said to be coming “soon”.
