THERE’S A LEAF CONVERTIBL­E NOW — BUT IT’S A ONE-OFF

-

Nissan unveiled an open-top version of its Leaf electric car in late May to celebrate building the 100,000th example of the popular EV. The Leaf Open Car is just a oneoff, with no plans for production, and Nissan said little to nothing else about it besides that. The car made its debut at a celebrator­y forum in Tokyo with about 100 execs and government officials, but we’d be shocked if it didn’t do the car show circuit after this. The new-generation Leaf, which came out last October, is powered by a 40-kWh battery pack, good for about 240 km of range. A 60-kWh battery is rumoured to be on the way, which could see range extended to 360 km. The 2019 Leaf ’s electric motor makes about 147 horsepower, and 238 pound-feet of torque.
