(AP) The upgraded Leaf electric car from Nissan can travel further without recharging, comes in a cheaper model and tells drivers how much battery life is left.


Nissan Motor Co. showed the latest Leaf on Tuesday at a Tokyo hotel. It can travel 228 kilometers (142 miles) on a single charge, up from 200 kilometers (124 miles) as long as you don't use air conditioning.


It sells for less than 2.5 million yen ($31,000) in Japan when stripped of fancy options and adding government green subsidies more affordable than the cheapest previous model at just below 3 million yen ($37,000).


The Japanese automaker said it made the improvements based on feedback from owners. The Leaf is the world's most popular electric vehicle. Global sales since late 2010 total 43,000 vehicles.
