Hey, look, it's the new, longer-range Nissan Leaf E+.

The most significant change is to the Leaf's battery pack, which gets a bump to 62 kilowatt-hours, meaning a range of about 226 miles.

This is a significant boost compared with the standard car's 40-kWh battery and 151-mile range.

That puts the Leaf E+'s range within spitting distance of the midrange Tesla Model 3.

For further comparison with other affordable electrics, though, the Kona Electric outpaces the new Leaf by 32 miles, while the Bolt EV's range outstrips the Nissan by just 12 miles.

The Leaf E+ features a 214-horsepower electric motor that produces 250 pound-feet of torque.

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.
