Nissan promised the 2018 Leaf would have a range of at least 150 miles when we drove the car late last year, and now we know what the official EPA range rating is.

The combined EPA range rating for the 2018 Nissan Leaf is 151 miles. Only one mile over the company’s last projections, the 151-mile range significantly exceeds the 73 miles the original car had back in 2011, or 84 miles of the latest updated example.

The combined MPGe is 112 miles, with a 125 MPGe in the city and 100 MPGe on the highway. The EPA said the Leaf requires 30 kWh for every 100 miles driven.

For those unfamiliar with the MPGe rating, the EPA calculates how far an electric vehicle can travel on the equivalent of the energy in 1 gallon of gasoline. The combined 112 MPGe rating is the same as the 2017 model.

For the 2019 model year, Nissan said they’ll be offering the Leaf with a 60 kWh battery pack that they said will have at least 200 miles of range.

The new Leaf is currently in production at Nissan’s plant in Smyrna, TN and should be arriving at dealerships now.
