If the solar panel is gone, it may be just the leather seats.

Specs tab at http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... -press-kit may help. I'm not sure this appeared recently or the Specs tab was added recently or if it's actually be there for awhile.

That spec sheet appears to be wrong, at least about the charge cable. I HOPE it's also wrong about Around View (and the Bose stereo) being standard on the SL and not even available on the SV. That would make no sense. Do I really have to bolt in the seats from my 2013 SV, or used seats, and pay thousands extra for crap I don't want??? I am F*ING ANGRY about this. Nissan can't seem to do a damned thing without screwing it up. Now they're also borrowing shitty sales tactics from GM. My lease isn't up until June. Maybe I'll be waiting for some other manufacturer to NOT F UP their token EV offering.

One place on the Nissan website that had me confused is when i tried adding the paint color: "Two-Tone Pearl White/Super Black" to an SL

it says:
The following are required and will be added to your build:
Technology Package

But I thought the Technology Package was already included, no?

Agreeing to that addition bumps the price by $2200 to $39,695
Seems like a lot for a black roof, or did i miss something?

It seems like the spec page and https://www.nissanusa.com/electric-cars ... configure/ currently match up on that.

I guess it's just marketing and/or forced up-selling. Bean counters may have dictated this.

Some vehicles are sold with very few choices/permutations in terms of equipment. I remember when I was in the market for a car in late 01 and ended up buying an 02 Nissan Maxima GXE, I'd considered the 02 Acura TL. There were a whole 4 permutations (except for color): TL vs. non-TL, with nav or without nav. All of them came w/forced features like power seats, leather, sunroof, etc.

02 Maxima GXE had virtually no options but quite a bit of standard equipment for the time (e.g. Homelink, auto-dimming mirror, auto on/off HID headlights, cruise control, power driver's seat, CD player w/cassette, trip computer, etc.) For get some of the other stuff like a better stereo, nav system or memory power seats, you had to go with other trims like the SE or GLE.

I'd be less pissed off if you could get an SL with a cloth interior. As it is I'm back in the market for another brand. I'll ask if my local dealer would do a seat swap with a 2018 SV, but I doubt the answer will be yes. That leaves me either paying almost $400 a month for an SV with no Around View and having to add my own aftermarket system, or maybe leasing an Ioniq EV with just crappy front sensors that don't work properly. If the 2017 packs weren't such garbage I'd be looking for one of those.

The Tech Package differs between the SV and SL, with the SL having some of the SV-optional items standard. The paint is the two tone white with black roof seen in early photos.

Regarding the 120/240 volt charge cable, the PDF brochure downloadable via https://www.nissanusa.com/electric-cars/leaf/ (Brochure button) seems to partly concur.

Brochure claims it's part of the charge package on S, part of T1 (SV Technology Package) for SV and standard on SL. Not sure if the brochure's right or not...

That is correct. Makes me wonder... what is the value of the various EVSEs nowadays?

I am to the point that I do not need half of what I have/will soon have. I wish there was a way to not accept the dual charge cable and give me credit for $300 or whatever (already know the credit would not equal what they would sell the cable for :? )
