The confirmation that the well-loved Nissan Leaf will be sticking around for many years was officially announced by Nissan with the possibility that a refreshed design for the future generation may be upon us, and it may even be a small SUV! Currently, Nissan is hard at work with the launch of the all-new Nissan Ariya electric crossover, and the future Nissan Leaf vehicles are still a few years away. Prior to this news, it had seemed as if the future of the Nissan Leaf was pretty much in limbo, even with some reports stating that the compact electric vehicle could even evolve into something completely different while others were speculating that the Nissan Leaf might disappear entirely. These rumors were completely shut down at a media event in Tennesee this past week as Aditya Jairaj, Nissan’s director of EV marketing and sales strategy, stated that “the Leaf is here to stay.”

More Information About the Leaf
At this time, the Nissan team and company are putting all their efforts and hard work towards advancing electric vehicles with the 2023 Nissan Ariya, which is now beginning to arrive at dealerships. The Ariya is rumored to have a starting price of around $44,000 MSRP (Plus Destination Fee) and a possible $60,000 MSRP (Plus Destination Fee) for the most feature-packed trim. This leaves room for the Nissan Leaf to continue its role as the most affordable electric vehicle offered by Nissan.

The present Leaf that exists has been recently refreshed and has been given a more simplified model lineup. It is currently priced at $28,040 MSRP (Plus Destination Fee) and is even one of the most affordable electric vehicles on the market to date. A Nissan spokesperson said, “With time, design evolves,” which showcases the possibility that the Leaf can change from its current form and may even become an SUV, as mentioned previously. More information will be released with time, and there is so much to look forward to about the future of the Nissan Leaf. Nissan always makes innovative vehicles, so there is no shortage of possible ideas for a refreshed Leaf for the future after the Ariya is finished!
