Any surprises to anyone?

I hope we don't have to wait till next November, for the 2018 MY announcement...

So the main change is they eliminated the 24-kWh battery from the S trim level? If that's it, they can expect to sell very few MY2017 LEAFs.

By the end of 2018 there will likely be so many other, better options that the Leaf may increasingly become just an asterisk... A seven year - or greater - refresh cycle is simply insane... What the hell is wrong with Nissan?! One wonders if we will actually see a model 3 before we see a new Leaf... ;)

I work CES for two weeks each year so will see if Ghosn has something more to say of substance when he gives the keynote in January...

Nope.

~24 kWh was already eliminated in late 2016 MY, but the 2017 S list price looks to have been lowered to $30,680, but with DC port and ~6.6 kW on-board charger again optional:

...The base price of the 2016 Leaf S with the 30 kWh battery and Quick Charge Package is $32,450 before any federal, state or regional incentives are applied...

So the idiots expect this to compete with the Bolt. Maybe I'll just take the $300+ a month and lease a Lexus...

+1 on this.

I don't understand releasing the 2017 now, with these prices and these specs. The Bolt release is just around the corner and people are going to cross shop them. Ugh. That is going to be a bad comparison for Nissan.

If they had just made the small improvements they could easily have made, like adjustable charge level (or even the return of the 80% option) and good headlights, people like me might heave a sigh and get another Leaf. If the 2017 really is the same car as this year, then Nissan has committed self-sabotage. I don't want to lease a car with fewer good features than the one I drive now.

Posted below are some reports (or rumors?) we can chew on...

More information on the 2017 Nissan Leaf

After Nissan recently announced that the 2017 Nissan Leaf would remain basically the same, with the small difference of the 30 kWh battery become standard on all trims, everybody got disappointed...

Even before Nissan released the 2017 Nissan Leaf specs, I got the information that the Nissan Leaf would have two different variants...

This means that we’ll see Nissan selling two Leaf variants side by side until the original model is phased out...

The other information I got is that the new battery is already in production at Sunderland, United Kingdom and will also be available to the Nissan e-NV200 electric van. It won’t be the same as the one used in Renault Zoe made with LG Chem battery cells...

Last but not least, the Nissan electric car based in the IDS concept with the 60 kWh battery won’t be here before 2018.

I take that to mean that when Leaf 2 comes out, they will keep selling Leaf 1 (or 1.5) until they sell them all. Nothing of interest there.

I take that to mean that Nissan predicts no competition for almost a year. This is a strong indication that speculation about Bolt--or Tesla 3 or what have you-- being just around the corner should be given little weight.
