If Nissan has any sense left, they will leak some critical Leaf specs like motor output and pack capacity(s) long before September, and will make it clear that orders will be fulfilled by this coming Christmas. Otherwise people will have little reason to wait into or past next Winter for a warmed-over Leaf.
It depends on what they've got.
If they have a 200+ miles of range option, it would make some sense to hint at that atleast. That way they can keep people from jumping ship.
If they don't have a 200+ mile option, I'm not sure what would be better. If they announce that - that will encourage people to jump ship now. If they only announce in Sep, they would disappoint a lot of folks who'd go elsewhere.
About when they will fulfil orders - that's a tough one. Production schedules can always slip, so it is difficult for any OEM to assure delivery.
