The Tesla Model 3 is announced, unmasked test/beta vehicles have been seen on the road, and real production information has been made available. It may end up being later than the end of this year, but it's certainly not fictional.
The Leaf Gen 2, however...
I wouldn't say the Model 3 is fictional, but it is true mass production hasn't started on it yet. Mass production may not have started on the Leaf v2.0 either. However, Nissan has been making $30k electric vehicles for years, Tesla hasn't. I suspect it will be easier to get a Nissan Leaf 2.0 sooner than a Tesla 3, especially considering the Model 3 wait list.
With that said, I'm hoping we can stay on topic & not derail predictions of the next Leaf's range & value.
