Nissan is supposedly putting the final touches on batteries that will double the current range of the Leaf

In a late night interview at Tokyo’s Business News channel, a relentless host pressed Carlos Ghosn for answers about the future of Nissan’s electric vehicle program. Is Nissan working on new batteries? Ghosn: “Yes.” Can you tell us more? Ghosn: “No.” Will the range double? Ghosn: “Yes.” That means more than 400 km? Ghosn: “Yes.”

Doubling the range?! I'll believe it when I see it. This would be a huge deal if it becomes a reality. Good for Nissan. I wonder if they will proliferate it to more vehicles since it has so much more capacity now.

I think it was a bit bullish for Ghosn to say that the range would be increased by that much. If it actually happens then kudos to him, but I think a bit more of a vague response may have been smarter.

Bullish eh? Ghosen's track record is not one of making outlandish statements. Nissan is already the global leader in EV's, why should it not be they who provide a major breakthrough. As darling as Tesla is they simply don't have significant resources to work with...

Toyota is a brand i would have thought would step up to the plate more with EV's but they seem to be taking a slower approach, one thing for sure is they have the capital to do this

Toyota has the Prius, and I also think that they have invested a lot of resources into hydrogen fuel cells instead of EV tech.
