According to a recent report, Nissan will introduce the Leaf II concept at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Designed to preview the next-generation Leaf, the concept will reportedly feature new lithium-ion batteries, an upgraded electric motor and weight saving aluminum body panels.  This could enable the car to travel up to 400 km (248 miles) on a single charge.

The second-generation Leaf will also pave the way for a new crossover and an Infiniti sedan.  Both models will use the Leaf's powertrain and will reportedly be previewed by concepts at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.

Little is known about them but Motoring says the crossover will have "similar proportions" to the Tesla Model X. The Infiniti, on the other hand, would pick up where the ill-fated LE concept left off.
