The 2016 Leaf now gets a 30kWh battery, first in the industry, which facilitates the range upgrade. The company claims a 155 miles (250 km) on a single charge. The upgrade is from the present 24kWh battery and comes at a 21 kg cost in terms of weight increase. The Leaf will be available in the UK in 3 variants – Visia, Tekna, and Acenta – with the older 24kWh battery – and two variants – Acenta and Tekna – with the 30kWh battery. The new battery gets a 8-year, 100,000 mile warranty.
