The crossover EV will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show this October, reportsAutocar. Nissan design boss Alfonso Albaisa said the vehicle will be "a little bigger" than the Qashqai, known as the Rogue Sport here in the U.S. It will go on sale globally in 2019.

An electric sedan is also likely to debut at some point. Members of the new EV family are expected to use the same 40-kilowatt-hour batteries and autonomous driving technologies as the Leaf. By 2020, Nissan's tech will be able to accommodate autonomous driving on urban roads and intersections instead of just highways. Right now, the Leaf's ProPilot feature can handle steering, acceleration, and braking in single-lane highway driving situations.

It's unclear what Nissan will call the new EVs, but they won't share the "Leaf" name in the same way that Volkswagen's line of electric vehicles will wear the "I.D." badge. When it arrives in the next few years, Nissan's electric crossover will compete with a production version of the VW I.D. Crozz. This crossover could travel 311 miles on a single charge and will reportedly head to the U.S. market in 2020.
