Nissan: Nissan announces Canadian pricing for 2019 LEAF PLUS

Mississauga, Ont. – Nissan announced Canadian pricing for the 2019 Nissan LEAF PLUS, a new addition to the popular Nissan LEAF electric vehicle lineup. It goes on sale in April at LEAF Certified Nissan dealers nationwide with a starting MSRP1 of $43,998 for the LEAF S PLUS model. The “PLUS” designation refers to the increased energy density of the model’s 62 kWh battery pack and the higher 214-horsepower output of its powertrain (versus the standard 40 kWh Nissan LEAF).

The new Nissan LEAF S PLUS powertrain adds to the car’s range by approximately 50 per cent with an NRCan range of up to 363 kilometres2 (versus the standard 40 kWh 2019 Nissan LEAF 243-kilometre range3), ensuring that there’s a Nissan LEAF to meet the driving needs of a wider range of customers.

The new powertrain also allows faster acceleration when driving at high speeds, accelerating nearly 13 per cent quicker than the standard Nissan LEAF. This allows the Nissan LEAF PLUS to confidently pass slower-moving vehicles, exit corners faster and more seamlessly, and merge easily with fast-moving traffic. The top speed has increased by approximately 10 per cent for comfortable cruising. In addition, thanks a standard new 100kW capacity quick charging system, the 2019 Nissan LEAF PLUS can charge more efficiently.

“With the addition of LEAF PLUS, the Nissan LEAF is now available with two battery options and a choice of four trim levels – each featuring the many advanced technologies offered under the banner of Nissan Intelligent Mobility,” said Steve Rhind, director of marketing, Nissan Canada Inc.

Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices1 (MSRP) for the 2019 Nissan LEAF PLUS are:

Destination and Handling $1,950 CAD

Both the new Nissan LEAF PLUS and standard 40 kWh Nissan LEAF embody Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society. The three key aspects of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, exemplified by the 2019 Nissan LEAF, are Nissan Intelligent Driving, Nissan Intelligent Power and Nissan Intelligent Integration.

Like the standard 2019 Nissan LEAF, the Nissan LEAF PLUS offers a dynamic design and advanced technologies such as ProPILOT Assist and ePedal. The 2019 Nissan LEAF PLUS also features standard Rear Door Alert (RDA), a system that can help remind customers of items that may be forgotten in the rear seat.

The Nissan LEAF PLUS carries over most of the standard Nissan LEAF’s design. Subtle clues to its PLUS Series designation include a revised front fascia with blue highlights and an e+ logo plate on the underside of the charge port lid. There are also rear trim level badges designating the grade levels as S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS.  

Like the standard 40 kWh model, the Nissan LEAF PLUS boasts a spacious, highly functional interior with a quality, high-tech feel. The combination of premium materials throughout the cabin befits a luxury vehicle. Vibrant blue contrast stitching for the steering wheel, seats and instrument panel accentuate the car as a Nissan electric vehicle.

The cabin’s interior dimensions comfortably accommodate five people, while the rear cargo area is designed to provide ample luggage space, offering 23.6 cubic feet of available stowage. It also allows for easy level 1 and 2 charging cable storage, which is standard on all trims

Every 2019 Nissan LEAF PLUS is offered with a limited warranty4 covering defects in materials or workmanship for eight years or 160,000 kilometres, whichever comes first, for the lithium-ion battery pack. Nissan also provides a limited warranty against battery capacity loss below nine bars of capacity as shown on the vehicle’s battery capacity level gauge for the first eight years or 160,000 kilometres for all models.

The 2019 Nissan LEAF PLUS is offered in three well-equipped grade levels: S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS. The standard 40 kWh 2019 Nissan LEAF is also available in the SV grade.

The Nissan LEAF is the best-selling electric vehicle in the world5 with more than 390,000 global sales.
