Does the Leaf have a hood

Fri Apr 30, 2010 4:07 pm

Does anyone know if the Leaf has a hood, and if so, what is under the hood. Most articles I have read indicate no hood (hence, nothing under the hood). Brake Fluid and WindShield Washer Fluids could be located under the hatch.

Although, when you look at the front of the car, it does look like there is a hood in front of the charging connectors.

In the "Media" section of the Board Index, Bicster posted the very unsatisfying view under the hood of the tour car.....all bolted down black plastic frame covers :)

There must be a way to service the drive and related components.

Thanks Steve. That's exactly what I was looking for. Whether or not this is the production release view or not, it at least guides expectations. Also, that video was the most comprehensive video I have seen yet.

One of a series of 10 pictuers apparently from a March 2010 exhibit in Japan.
Check out the picture one previous in the set: a power module.

Keep up the good hunting.

Do you understand Japanese to help find these?

Good view of the battery placement.

The rear passengers actually sit a bit higher...like good movie seating :)
