Nissan Leaf Inching Closer To A Hydrogen Upgrade?

By  | 

It has been months since Nissan launched the new generation Leaf and we are still pending to see the carmaker releasing the longer-range variant.

Well, according to the latest rumours, the Leaf that boasts more than 200 miles in driving range may not happen at all as Nissan is venturing into FCEV technology. Nissan made it official last year when they revealed that they will invest more in FCEV technology as they don’t want to fall behind rivals Toyota and Honda.

A report from Japan has further indicated that Nissan won’t dwell into building a new car to show off their FCEV progress and they will instead equip the hydrogen-sipping powertrain on the Leaf through a special model.

If this is to be the case, the Leaf that can go beyond 200 miles may just be one that relies on FCEV instead of just a larger battery. But of course, these are all base on speculations and you should take it with a grain of salt.

    Nissan stick with Battery technology, I guess I’ll pick up my Tesla and not wait for the 200+ Mile BEV Leaf.
