The Leaf E+ will be sold as a separate model from the standard Leaf with its own family of trim levels ranging from S Plus to SL Plus, all of which come standard with Nissan's ProPilot Assist semiautonomous system and E-Pedal, the latter of which has been reprogrammed to work better with the new car's increased power.
