2018 LEAF S/SV/SL Features and option package list

Mon Sep 11, 2017 12:16 pm

I'm sure that many of you have been wanting more details on the new LEAF and here they are. These are the launch content lists and option packages for the '18 LEAF from Nissan and they have authorized me to share them.

Note that at launch that the cars will be configured with the option packages automatically, and that interior and exterior colors will be limited. Light Grey interior trim is not available for the S and SV, and some of the colors like green will not be initially available. These ordering constraints will most likely be in effect through the in of CY Q1 '18.

Does this mean to imply that green will eventually be available? What shade? Are there pictures of pre-production Leafs in green that you can share?

I have not yet seen the actual color, much less on a car, but it is described as a frosted silver green sort of like this paint swatch. Some at Nissan like it and others hate it, so I expect that is why it is delayed.

Here is a what I think the color will be like: Image

When I was in the military, this was called sea foam green.

We could only dream of a metallic BRG/saddle tan LEAF, don't you think?

I would absolutely love that color combination. If only.

You can see that color in some Priuses. My housemate's PIP is that color.
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

The Japan configurator can be found here: http://simulation.nissan.co.jp/LEAF/GRADE/

They do offer that kind of green, which they are calling "Spring light green". You can work through the configurator to see the various color options. Just select the "grade", then exterior color on the next page, then interior, then just click the big red button to skip the rest of the options list.

Did you get a list of what the full color options would eventually be for the US market? Any other additions besides the green? Some of the Japanese two-tone combos seem nice. I particularly like the "China blue" two-tone.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

The signature color for the car will be Pearl White with Piano Black roof and mirrors, but I'm still trying to get the full list of later colors.

Nissan reminds me of VW when it comes to colors. The domestic market always gets the cool 1% colors.

Here is a translated image of the LEAF JDM colors, they have several nice two-tone combinations.

It appears I could get an SL without tech package to have a vehicle somewhat similar to my 2015. Can the "intelligent" cruise control be programmed to just hold a steady speed like the existing system instead of slowing down/speeding up depending upon nearby traffic?

That's exactly what it will do if there isn't another car in front of you, then depending how close you want to follow behind, it will stay at that speed until you pass, then it will resume your preset speed.

If you have never driven a car with smart cruise control, its great, once you get the hang of it, you will love it.
