After looking at the pictures and reading up on the car, I'm satisfied with the exterior. I was a little worried I'd miss the old style, but I think the new look still reminds me of of the old style while making it look more like a traditional car. Not too crazy about having an analog speedometer, but not a deal breaker. Like the digital dashboard and I really love the steering wheel!

The range is not surprising, and I think it's a good move to have a more affordable EV with decent range. I'm still going to hold out for a 200+ range version since my 2013 LEAF is still treating me well. I'm curious what the other forum members think.

Nice improvements. It's a better looking vehicle. My 2016 model 100+mile range is noticeably better than my 2013 model's 80 mile range. 150 miles will bring the Leaf to more mainstream drivers.

Lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control and rear cross traffic alerts are attractive additions. I surely enjoy them on my Volvo. I hope that Nissan improves their support of EV Connect / Carwings or whatever they're going to call it. I am disappointed that virtually none of the apps are available on NissanConnect in my 2016 Leaf. This is something that Nissan could have fixed and for whatever reason, did not.

so 40 kWh battery is availble 1st. But they didn't give a date for the 60 kWh battery.

They didn't say if the warranty was improved or if they added Thermal Control liquid or air or none?

With their E Pedal did they increase the REGEN? Is it adjustable?

How fast can the DC Fast Charging go?

Did the on board charging change from 6 kW?

Will the V2G affect the battery life/ warranty ?

What is the cost of their Pro Pilot?, 60 kWh battery, V2G option and inverter? and many other questions.

Our 24 kWh battery will only do about 65 miles at 65 mph freeway speeds. A 40 kWh battery, which is less than double, will then do how many miles under normal temps at 65 mph? The above poster asks some very good questions that I would like to know the answer.

Why not ask the questions at viewtopic.php?f=55&t=24497?

You pose a lot of good cost questions and they all invite lots of speculation.

My only question is ; Why did Nissan decide to go to sleep and let everyone catch up when they had a seven year plus lead in EVs on the other legacy car makers? I would like to see this 2018 MY car as positive ;but, essentially their Leaf product has stagnated for seven years of no or very little progress.

Also, I'm very disappointed in Nissan's management because all they have succeeded in doing is proving a legacy car maker can't manage building batteries. After being stuck with a 2011 with a poor resell value,

I'm advising people to learn from my mistake and lease, don't buy. if you are considering a Nissan Leaf.

BTW, OP, are there reasons why you keep starting new 2018 Leaf threads? You've started a bunch.

Per viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2499 and the practices (and posts from) of some of the mods over the years, it's sometimes frowned upon if there are already existing threads. I'm surprised many of your 2018 threads haven't been merged into larger ones (yet).
