I'll update once our order is in and we get some feedback, but excited to finally be entering the EV realm!


Jade Frost was my choice and it was always listed as a delayed option but looks like we will start seeing our first in Mid March. I simply can't wait that long though.... I am LEAFless and its kinda killing me... :(



Good to see your colour choice too. I'd love to see a real pic of that colour as I've only seen renderings.

Are you sure you want to deal with the garbage battery in the 2017 SV?

I've already lost 21% of the original capacity (2016 SV) in two years time here in frozen Minnesota!

No, I'm not sure, and a good starting SOH is mandatory. That alone may make it impossible. I'd also be interested in a good low mileage 2015 SV or SL (I'd swap seats with mine) with excellent SOH and Premium.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Great! I'd love to see actual pics of this colour. Mainly seen renderings and a still video from the Japanese Tokyo Auto Show launch last year. The video is not that good of the lighting, but it looks like an amazing colour. Let us know!

I signed the paperwork for a 2018 scarlet Red SL with Black leatherette interior. Tech package, protection package, and some mud flaps and kick plates. Order says it should arrive at the dealer sometime in March.

This was in DFW area, and total cost will be ~$41k.

I wish it were leatherette. It's more or less actual leather.

There is a Nissan dealership in Wisconsin, IIRC, that is offering a free lifetime limited powertrain warranty with all new Nissans. I'm looking into it.
