Silly me for turning in my eGolf instead of extending the lease because I was foolish enough to believe that they would deliver in January as told.

Had I dug deeper and understood Nissans track record of botching deliveries, I would have extended.

Somebody just copied and pasted between model years I think...


When I look at that URL (as of 2018-01-31 18:33 CST), it shows the 2017 and 2018 LEAF both have 112 MPGe, but the 2017 range is listed as "107 miles Total Range" and the 2018 as "151 miles Total Range". Was "107" or "151" used for both in an earlier version of that web page?

I have a Model 3 reservation for the wife which fortunately has no urgency for us to get. However I do check over there in their forum every so often and it always seems like everyone is in one of the five stages of grief. While it's dysfunctional here, it's complete purgatory there.

Should my 3 reservation come up earlier, I plan to slip it to 2019 so that is fine with me...

I find this assessment of interest,

"Fast forward to today, when the LEAF was supposed to have been rolling off of lots last month, and that’s not quite how it worked out. Cars didn’t begin arriving until recently in small numbers and they were pegged for reservation holders. Nissan told us it could be mid-February before another shipment of LEAFs become available at dealers for new buyers."

Take this with only some weight because the same sight had claimed in November that their sources said that they started production in NA, when the real start date was the first week of Dec.
