According to a recent report, Nissan could unveil an updated Leaf as early as this August.

Citing a source familiar with the project, Automotive News is reporting the updated model will feature a new 30 kWh lithium-ion battery that is the same size as the current 24 kWh unit.  

Thanks to the extra power, the Leaf will reportedly have an EPA-estimated range of approximately 125 miles (201.1 km) which far better than the current rating of 84 miles (135.1 km). However, the 'real world' range is expected to be somewhere between 105-110 miles (168.9-177 km).
