Well my 2013 Leaf "Serenity" arrived today. I started putting the mods and accessories that I pre-orderd for the car on it. One of the accessories that I ordered was the Nissan Cargo Cover for the back hatch area.
Frankly this is something that should have come on the car. The idea I had to buy this for the car is kind of crazy to me. So I slapped the cargo cover in the car, and yes it is just like it should have been there all along. I can no longer see into the back of the car, the fit and finish is very good. It looks great. Should have always been there.
This is one of those things where I really wasn't sure I wanted to spend the money for this cover. It is a little spendy for what it is. But it works as intended. I like it and recommend it if you are concerned about shielding or protecting the stuff in your car. Not a must have, but certainly a nice to have item.
This is a Nissan OEM part. The trick to installing it is to push the rear seats forward so you can get the access to the attachment points on the shelf that Nissan has molded there for it. And there is a molded little peg in the hatch window where the cover has two little strings that attach to the hatch so it lifts up when you open the hatch. So everything is there for the cover. Sadly we just have to buy the cover.
You can find it on Amazon, Ebay, and of course your local dealer. Not sure if there is any difference between the model years of the car so you may need to pay special attention to the year of your car when looking for this cover.
