2015 S to 2018 S Downgrades

Tue Apr 17, 2018 8:22 am

Hey All! I just turned in my '15 S Lease for a new '18 S Lease.

Overall I like most of the upgrades but there are some minor downgrades I've been finding...

- No Heated Steering Wheel
- No Heated Seats
- No Sun Visor Extension
- No Clip on the Sun Visor (I put my garage remote there)
- Cup holders are in an awkward spot.
- Extra Plastic around the bottom of the center console
- Stock charger & bag are both huge now
- Arm Rest storage is smaller

The battery temp is still there. If you scroll down through the info on the driver cluster screen, one of the pages shows battery temp, another shows capacity.

You can get the heated wheel and seats with the Cold Weather Package. In the SV this also adds the heatpump, which is no longer standard.

I wouldn't personally think about paying for the Cold Weather Package in SoCal. I would happily have had them included like they were before though.

- No Sun Visor Extension


The visor should slide along the rod, instead.

You are correct, it does. It doesn't seem to extend as long as the old plastic extension though.

That is almost funny. I'll simplify what you said: "I don't use those things therefore I'll take them for free".
"Everybody who actually need those things should pay. Because they actually use them. I don't, therefore, give it for free."


Well, I don't know how to react on that emotionally.
Short range EVs <30kWh -- Medium range: 30-60kWh -- Long range: >60kWh
Charging: Trickle <3kW -- Normal 3-22kW -- Fast 50-100kW -- Supercharging >100kW

- No Heated Steering Wheel not included in basic package in either MY
- No Heated Seats see above
- No Sun Visor Extension has slider which is crap. Only allows Sun to shine in from the other side
- No Clip on the Sun Visor (I put my garage remote there) Have no idea what you are talking about. I have my remote clipped to visor which is same spot as my 3 previous LEAFs
- Cup holders are in an awkward spot. Better position imm but not optimal. Previous spot impeded with anything plugged into 12 volt.
FYI; Blame me. I suggested cups or 12 volt port be moved.

- Extra Plastic around the bottom of the center console More storage although not optimally laid out. Its a preferential thing here. I like it
- Stock charger & bag are both huge now Major understatement but at least you save money on Gym membership fees. That thing weighs a ton!
- Arm Rest storage is smaller
Yeah sucks. Prefer wider, shallower. Half the time I have to rearrange items for hatch to close. I preferred the "toss from across the cockpit" option much better.
