Back when the 2018 Nissan LEAF launched at the start of September, lots of people criticized the car’s expected EPA range of 150 miles (240 kilometers). With the Tesla Model 3 on its way to market and the Chevrolet Bolt EV offering a good 50 percent more range than the 2018 Nissan LEAF, many of you argued nobody would be interested in purchasing the LEAF.
Yet two months after its launch, Nissan is reporting strong sales for both Europe and Japan — the two markets where the new LEAF is already available.
And that leads me to ask the following question. Did Nissan get the range-price equation right for the 2018 Nissan LEAF? And will it do well in the U.S. when it launches there later this year?
