The Nissan Leaf is a small, electric car. In July, plans for a new Nissan cross-over were announced. It was widely believed that this vehicle would be the Leaf’s replacement. This theory has now been confirmed. The Leaf replacement will have a crossover design instead of a hatchback, and it will be constructed utilizing the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance’s CMF-EV platform, with a launch date expected to be around 2025.
Nissan’s new model lineup will include five electrified models: the Nissan Juke (also known as the Nissan Qashqai), Nissan Ariya (also known as the Nissan X-Trail), Nissan X-Trail,, and the upcoming Leaf Replacement. All of these are set to launch by 2025. The Japanese automaker has decided to stop developing traditional models in Europe, such as saloons and estates.
Nissan will instead seek support from its Alliance partners Renault and Mitsubishi to help with other vehicle segments. This includes a new small-sized car that will replace the Micra. Nissan will not invest in developing internal combustion engine technologies that comply with EU7 emissions regulations. These are due to be implemented in Europe in the middle of 2020s.
2025 Nissan Leaf Review
Nissan has recently revealed a sneak preview of the all-electric Micra. Given that the Leaf shares the same design, many wonder what this means for the entry-level electric vehicle. The Leaf was introduced in 2017 and its design is now outdated. However, it will not be in production much longer.
Nissan confirmed to Autocar that the replacement Leaf will arrive in 2025. It will be produced at Nissan’s Sunderland plant in the United Kingdom. The important news is that it will be a cross-over model, not a small hatchback. Guillaume Cartier has confirmed Nissan’s Europe boss’s statement that the new electric vehicle will replace the Leaf. This means Nissan’s European line-up will focus heavily on crossovers going forward. Nissan has already announced the all-electric Juke, and it will join the Ariya which is due to be launched early next year.
The X-Trail, Qashqai,, and other mild hybrids are classified by the EPA as “mild” hybrids. This means they use gasoline to run their electric motors and have a limited amount of electrification. They do not, however, have enough battery capacity to run on only electricity. This is unlike the Toyota Prius.
A crossover is a smaller SUV for those who don’t know the term. They share many of the features found in SUVs including plenty of interior space. However, because they are built using the same platform, they are lighter and smaller. SUVs share a common platform with pickup trucks and therefore are larger and heavier.
It has been confirmed by Nissan that the Leaf’s successor will adopt the EMF-EV platform of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, which is currently used by the Ariya and Renault Megane E-Tech Electric. Envision AESC’s latest batteries will be used. The Sunderland factory will produce the new model, with 100,000 units to be distributed in international markets. Nissan only confirmed that the models made in the UK would be exported to Europe mainland.
Nissan’s popular LEAF EV could be transformed into a compact crossover. Guillaume Cartier confirmed by Nissan’s European Head that the company would be producing a brand new electric crossover in Sunderland, UK, in 2025. This new electric crossover will be part of the third generation LEAF, and Nissan’s fifth electric SUV.
It is not clear if this new model will be the next version of the LEAF or a completely separate model that will replace the LEAF from Nissan’s line-up. The LEAF is expected to undergo a redesign, and will likely switch from a car to an SUV. However, the name of the vehicle will remain. There is no guarantee. Some refer to the new EV as being the LEAF successor. For the moment, it will still be called the LEAF 2025.
The 2025 LEAF’s most notable change will be its switch from a hatchback to a compact SUV crossover. This could indicate Nissan’s move towards more SUVs and crossovers rather than sedans and hatchbacks. The vehicle will probably be based on the CMF-EV platform from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, but we don’t know how different it will look from Nissan’s other electric SUVs such as the Juke, Qashqai, Ariya, and X-Trail. Nissan hopes to sell 80% of electric cars by 2030, to meet the upcoming European emission standards. The automaker will not pursue hydrogen technology, but instead focus on batteries-powered vehicles. Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida hinted at the possibility of revealing more details on the company’s electrification plans in the coming months.
According to Automotive News, a source unofficial has confirmed that the Nissan LEAF will be phased out. The Nissan LEAF was the first compact all-electric mainstream model to launch in 2010. Nissan LEAFs are currently manufactured in Japan, the US, and the UK but the production will end mid-decade.
Nissan plans to replace the LEAF with a brand-new model. Nissan’s representative has not confirmed the rumor but it is most likely true. Nissan plans to build a new electric SUV at its Sunderland factory in the UK. The vehicle will replace the LEAF, and it is expected to be launched around 2025.
Nissan’s ex-CEO Carlos Ghosn was very optimistic about the LEAF. It was an all-electric vehicle that Nissan invested heavily in. Nissan had hoped to launch four models with the LEAF and reach the mass market, but sales were weaker than expected. Nissan has three production sites, and through a joint venture with NEC, it produces batteries in-house. However, sales of the LEAF did not meet expectations. Nissan sold only 30,200 LEAFs in 2014, its best-selling year. The LEAF’s sales today are less than half of this figure.
Nissan appears to have abandoned its plans for new models besides the Nissan e-NV200 and it now appears that the LEAF only coexists with the Nissan Ariya, until new battery-electric vehicle (BEV model) models are released. Nissan wants to offer 15 electric cars by 2030. The company will also have 23 electrified vehicles in total. By 2030, Nissan expects to sell 40% of its new cars in the US as BEVs. It’s not clear what new model will replace the LEAF, even though the Nissan Ariya is another model. The Nissan Chill-Out concept car revealed along with several other models in late 2021, may provide some clues as to the LEAF’s successor.

It is also expected to offer a longer driving range and faster acceleration. The 2025 Leaf will offer a range of over 300 miles thanks to advances in battery technology. This makes it an attractive option for long-distance travel, without the need to recharge frequently.
The 2025 Nissan Leaf’s electric motor and battery will be at its core.

Customers can choose from a wide range of options, including classic black and white and vibrant reds and greens.
2025 Nissan Leaf Price & Release Date
No pricing information has been released for the 2025 Nissan LEAF. This model will be an electric SUV. It’s reasonable to assume that the price will be higher than the $28,375 starting price of the current Nissan LEAF. There will be plenty of competition in 2025 for the LEAF, as this segment continues to grow due to automakers’ shift to electrified cars. Ford Explorer EV could be one of them, as well as the Mazda CX70, Toyota bZ4X, and Nissan Ariya.
We only know that the compact SUV will be released in 2025. We learned that the chip shortage has caused many automakers to be behind schedule.
