With all the talk of 150+ mile cars, I wouldn't be surprised if some months later the 107 mile car has a fire sale too. Here is talk about the Hyundai: https://plus.google.com/u/1/+DanielCard ... GrYrS5oG2B

I doubt that.

2015 LEAF dealer inventory is already below optimal (~60 days sales) and Nissan seems to have managed the 2015 MY wind-down well enough to avoid any fire sale.

The 2015 LEAF doesn't even make the Top Battery Electric Car Deals This Month list:

http://www.carsdirect.com/deals-article ... -car-deals

As reported there, it Looks like you can lease an E Golf at a slightly lower cost, and a "2015 FIAT 500e an effective lease cost of just $225 per month, (is) $41 less than a Nissan LEAF".

Since Nissan reportedly has been manufacturing the 2016 LEAF for a few months now, if their is a delay in the introductions beyond "Fall", I think there is probably another reason for the delay, unknown to us at the moment.


doubters on "any" subject are a given. Thank you for your thoughts

Hi,
in Europe we have already some little reviews:

In the end they drive 201 km (124 miles) with two bars left.

Attached is the route which was very hilly.

I thought you in US would have first reviews, but Sunderland seems to be ready first ?!

Is this a calibration issue? The speedometer looks kind of 'amber'....

Yup, my current plan is banking on a fire sale of the 2016. The 84 mile range of 2015 is just short of what I need to avoid range anxiety. 107 miles sound just right for me. Thus there is no good reason for me to wait for the 2017 if the 2016 becomes a bargain buy.

I could make the 2016 Leaf or the current B work for me. But given my commute (minimum 65 freeway one-way), I'd be a lot more comfortable with a range of 125+. However, if there are bargain sales on either or my ICE needs replacing sooner, I could go those 2 routes. However, without 125+ range, I'd probably go i3 with Rex or C350e to be safe on the range. But part of me wants to stay pure BEV while another part of me is MB fanboy. It is good to be getting some intriguing choices.

Thanks for the links, if you turn on CC and translate to English, it works pretty well to help you understand what the person is saying in his review.
