The lower location would have resulted in access issues, and much more frequent damage to the ports in minor front end bang-ups. There is no perfect spot to put the ports on that nose...

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

I expect I'd use e-Pedal mode exclusively.

A single accelerator/decelerator pedal just makes sense in a BEV where regenerative braking meets nearly all normal driving requirements.

We will probably think of the friction brake pedal as an emergency brake, in the none-too-distant future.

Simple things can be amazing

Nissan announced today that the widely anticipated new Nissan LEAF will come with e-Pedal, a revolutionary technology that transforms the way we drive.

With the flip of a switch, the technology turns your accelerator into an e-Pedal, allowing drivers to accelerate, decelerate and stop using just the e-Pedal*. e-Pedal technology is the world's first one-pedal operation that allows drivers to bring the car to a complete stop even on hills, stay in position, and resume driving instantly.

Drivers can cover 90% of their driving needs with the e-Pedal, making the process of driving more exciting. In heavy traffic and during city commutes, drivers will greatly reduce the need to shift from one pedal to the other, making your drive simpler and more engaging.

The e-Pedal technology represents another key milestone in Nissan's ongoing commitment to bring accessible, advanced driver assistance technologies to the mainstream. Set to make driving safer and more enjoyable, the development of these technologies is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company's blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.

By launching the Nissan LEAF, the world's first mass-market electric vehicle, Nissan established itself as pioneer in the EV movement. Today the Nissan LEAF is the world's best-selling electric vehicle, with more than 277,000 sold worldwide.

I hope this also means no more double-shifting into ECO every time I start driving!

Pretty much what I do now except for the full stop.

Assume you'd have to switch it off for creep, except for pro pilot in bumper to bumper.

Hopefully, creep mode will be accessed by slightly depressing the A/D pedal.

From the graphic:
Press e-Pedal for an exciting drive

I hope they live up to that claim. Jumping ahead from a stop light is a cheap thrill, but my 2012 Leaf does not really provide an "exciting drive". And the 2013-2017's have even less torque, so less excitement.

But also lower gearing.

Maybe so. Having driven both, I can tell you that the difference in pickup is noticeable.
