I actually watched the ECO Indicator go to full as soon as I began coasting down a hill in "N" yesterday, so your example is wrong.
Did you press the accelerator while in neutral?
No, I did not press the accelerator. I was just coasting downhill. If I press the accelerator in N, nothing would happen. Other info: I had 80% charge as I was leaving home. I live on a mountain and my drive out of home is always downhill. It was 29 degrees on dashboard.

Next time you are coasting in N, press the accelerator and watch the "trees". Something will happen.

and maybe stop making absolute statments like "you are wrong" before you have all the info or have read all the facts.... never a good idea.... there are few things that are 100% absolute...

I said "Your example is wrong". I did not say "you are wrong". There is a difference.

I will try that out but it just strange for anyone to accelerate in N. There is no ICE engine roar that's for sure.

Yes, the ECO Indicator turns down (counter clockwise) when I press the accelerator in N, but like I said before, there is no need to press the accelerator in N because nothing happens. Its Neutral and the inverted is disconnected from motor. This is either a coding error by Nissan, or Nissan tries predict usage if D or ECO are engaged with the accelerator pressed. In any case, the ECO Tree and ECO Indicator IMO are helpful in displaying drive efficiency without moving eyes off the road to watch the center console's energy usage screen.

I'm 6'5 and I can't see the current shifter display either.
