In an interview in Norway to mark the 30,000 Leaf sold in that country, a senior Nissan executive has confirmed the reveal date, place and time for the new Nissan Leaf as September 6th in Tokyo at a special event.

Also, he mentions that the new Leaf is a completely new design. There is no carryover from the current generation.
Nothing else interesting in the story.

The worst part of anticipating an event in September is that it gives me a subtle urge to wish the summer went by faster. And that's just not right!

Had a good laugh when reading this part:

Thus useful idiots like us in Technical Weekly Magazine and others who write about electric cars will keep interest in the weeks until launch.

Also, he mentions that the new Leaf is a completely new design. There is no carryover from the current generation.


Frankly, I don't believe that, and actually hope it isn't true. If I decide to order a Leaf 2 without driving one, it will have to use the existing car as the basis for the redesign. If it really is all new, I'll probably lease a Bolt - which by then should be ironed out. Someone else can beta test the all-new Leaf.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

If it's not a new design, it isn't 2.0. Just another version of the gen 1. I have every expectation it will be a complete redesign. That's not to say it won't have a resemblance in dimension, design, etc

If you mean "the Bolt is also brand new" then note that I'll be leasing when the Bolt has been out for about 9 months, with lots of early Bolt buyers being used as beta testers, and things like software revisions and probably seat modifications having already been implemented by GM. If you mean something else that makes sense, please enlighten us.

When you accuse companies like Nissan and GM of beta-testing on their end-user you lose credibility with me. Even Tesla only really beta-tests their software with the end user.

While it's true new vehicles can have teething problems, vehicles at the end of their model life can be just as problematic as something new on the assembly line.

It must be pointed out that it is exceptionally rare for their to be a serious defect in the core design of a vehicle. The only one that comes to mind directly is the Pinto. Smaller parts flaws, well these things happen even with mature parts on a worn production line.

When I look at the history of GM electronics in their vehicles over the last thirty years, or that of Nissan, you'd have to come up with a much more compelling argument to make me risk buying a mature production GM over a virgin Leaf 2.
