Rumor: Leaf 2017 to get 40kWh
[comments] Jul 13, 2016 kensiko This is a rumor that we heard from a few
dealers. The Leaf 2017 will get an upgraded battery pack to 40 kWh in
november. Base S will get the 30 kWh version as early as next month.
jjeff So would the 40kWh battery fit in the same space? If not I wonder
where the extra bulk will fit.....Now if Nissan will only get busy and start
importing the eNV200, that with a 40kWh would be perfect for me 8-)
LeafMuranoDriver Makes sense if they aren't going to the 2nd Gen [Leaf]
I'm guessing they'll be able to fit the 40 [kWh pack] in the same size of
the 30 ...
DaveinOlyWA well a statement with no supporting links definitely qualifies
as a rumor.

I have doubts too, but the information comes from different vendors who have
had this information at an official meeting Sales from NIssan Canada. I
spoke directly with one of them who says hard like iron this:
Leaf S 2016: the next batch (delivery July 2016) will have a 30 kWh battery
2017 Leaf SV & SL: Even bodywork, a few minor changes and new battery 40 kWh
Leaf 2018: Complete overhaul with new battery of 60 kWh
So ... it is still just rumors, yes, but based on more than a person who
reports the same information.
Nissan is usually very stingy on ads. So if you see soon disembark Leaf S
2016 with a battery of 30 kWh, you say there is a good chance that the rest

Update on the Nissan Leaf 40 kWh story
Aug 11, 2016 ... 40 kWh is the usable battery capacity ... The total battery
capacity should be 45-46 kWh for the Nissan Leaf and the Renault Zoe R400
% The wording reads like when the 40kWh pack is made available, the 21kWh
pack will be dropped, the 30kWh pack will shift down to only be offered on
the S trim, and the SV and SL trims will offer the 40kWh pack. But we will
have to wait for these options. For now, current (today) Leaf options are:
cheaper S trim 21kWh, SV&SL trims 30kWh packs, see
