Yet that is exactly what I expect them to do. The first Leaf was a MY2011. 2011-2017 is a 7 year model run. Others predict that the MY2017 will be gen 2 - that would be a 6 year model run. So Nissan is doing exactly that - a 6-7 year model run of the first-gen Leaf. And I don't think they are squandering their lead in the process.
