Agreed: I will definitely be "kicking the tires" on a 2019 Leaf. I've seen bits and pieces of everything there except the TMS: if it's for more than just "fast charging", I will be amazed.

The 0-60 in 6.5 seconds is pretty impressive for a Leaf!

Yes, when you start off as one of the slowest EVs 6.5 is better but not exactly impressive.

We are so spoiled nowadays! When I first started driving, 6.5 second 0-60 time would have been solidly in the "sports car" category. Now it's makes for an unimpressive family car. :roll: :lol:

Very impressive. I'm interested. Surprised they released this data. Maybe push some to avoid the current 2018 offering?

Yeah I agree when you look at the specs of the 2019 you have to wonder why anyone would go for the 2018?!

I understand the 2018 is a little cheaper but it's well worth paying a little more to get a vastly superior car IMHO. Plus the 2018 will have the crappy AESC battery without a TMS, no thanks!

We don't know if the 2018 40kwh version will be a "little cheaper" or a "LOT cheaper" than the 2019 60kwh version. I'll be at my spending limit paying $356 a month for my 2018 SV; another 20kwh I don't need, but that costs me another hundred a month, that doesn't interest me. The active cooling does, though, and I'm very concerned about degradation in the 40kwh pack...

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I might be interested if active cooling is only for charging, but I don't want a battery that requires cooling while parked for extended time without being plugged in. I don't want to return to the office or airport after parking for 2 or 3 weeks to a car that discharged itself trying to keep its battery cool. The other specifications look really interesting.
