Nissan has plenty of new metal coming down the pipeline soon, if a recent dealer convention in Las Vegas serves as any indication. Alongside previews of the redesigned Armada, Murano, and Kicks SUVs, dealers were shown three upcoming EVs, including the anticipated successor to the Leaf electric hatchback.




Dealers told Automotive News that the Leaf's successor will take the form of a coupe-style crossover, packing "mini Ariya" styling. It's also been reported that the new EV will bring a 25% increase in range compared to the existing Leaf, which means it could last 265 miles on a single charge. While that trails behind the 304-mile estimate for more efficient Ariya models, it represents a vast improvement compared to today's Leaf, which receives EPA ratings of between 149 and 212 miles of range.


Even less is known about the other two EVs, though one of them is expected to take the shape of a performance sedan, effectively replacing the outgoing Maxima. It may or may not be the sedan-like model previewed by Nissan last year, which the automaker said would enter production around 2025. The other model is expected to be another crossover, which will share its CMF-EV platform with the Ariya.



Dealers also reported seeing next-generation versions of the Armada, Kicks, and Murano. While the former two come as no surprise, plans for a redesigned Murano are well overdue, as the current generation has endured nearly ten years on sale. Meanwhile, the next Kicks has already been spotted testing, though its release has reportedly been pushed further into 2024 due to equipment thefts at Nissan's plant in Mexico. The next Armada should arrive at around the same time, following the redesigned Infiniti QX80 that was previewed by the QX Monograph concept earlier this month.


Nissan also told dealers that a redesigned Rogue is coming in the second half of 2026, offering the company's e-Power hybrid system. This won't be the first time the SUV has been offered as a hybrid on our shores, as the short-lived Rogue Hybrid last exited the U.S. market after the 2019 model year.


What do you think of Nissan's future plans?
