Good. It is way past time for you to become informed of their published schedules.
I informed myself of them as soon as they published them and am monitoring them to see how they do, the exact same standard I apply to Tesla. I gave Tesla a pass on their schedules for 2012 and 2013, and even the first half of 2014, while the learning curve was steep and they were making a lot of beginner mistakes, such as not foreseeing the need for a different stall design in areas that had to be cleared by snowplows, something that isn't an issue in the Bay Area or most of California FTM. They had a similar "Doh!" moment when once again customers had to point out that a pull-through or at least long pull-into stall was a near necessity for Model Xs (or S's) towing trailers.
For the full 2014 year on, the learning curve excuse for repeatedly failing to meet their SC schedules just doesn't cut it.

What makes you think I've stopped? How could you have missed my criticism of them for once again failing to provide a capacity warranty with defined values for the 2018, just as I'd criticized them in the past for failing to do so with the 2013+ (the 2011-2012s were the only MYs that had defined values rather than bars, and that was only because of the Phoenix test and the class action suit, the need for either of which to get them to do right by their customers I berated them for, repeatedly and at length). I gave Nissan kudos for introducing the the first mass-produced, relatively affordable if limited BEV; virtually everything they've done since then has been either stupid, inadequate, or too minor to bother about. I wrote the 2018 LEAF off for the full range of continental climates when it became clear that Nissan wasn't going to improve the battery pack or the warranty.

Suit yourself. At least there may be a more civil tone to discussions here.
