Re: Post your questions about the '18 LEAF 2 reveal here

Thu Sep 07, 2017 7:01 am

In my notes from the launch, I have that all trim levels of the new LEAF have an onboard 6.6kW charger.

For the S the additional charge options are a quick charge package that includes Quick Charger CHAdeMO (50 kW)
and the dual voltage L1/L2 EVSE and the incremental price is about $600.

On the SV and SL, the Quick Charger CHAdeMO (50 kW) and the dual voltage L1/L2 EVSE are standard.

There is a battery icon with a cell phone type two-tone charge indicator and a % SOC above it. No individual bars, AFAIK.


I believe there is a display option to show capacity that I saw when I was exploring the display options on the dash display.

Since the generation 2 or 2018 battery pack fits in the same space, can I get this newer 400 km battery pack for my generation 1 Leaf?

They are Michelin tires, but not self-sealing.

Does V2G or V2H require a special hardware module in the Leaf? The features description did not state it being a product option.
Will V2G or V2H be available for cars sold in the California market?

There is very little being written about this topic and the only thing I can find was that it will be first trialed in Detroit.

I don't recall it being much different up front, but certainly rear passengers exiting the vehicle will find it more of a chore.

What would it take for ANYONE to be happy with the '18 LEAF?

Thu Sep 07, 2017 9:24 am

Watched the reveal live from Japan yesterday of the '18 LEAF.

I'm stunned at the amount of whining and crying from US LEAF owners (and others) about what they didn't get yesterday. Who exactly took away your birthday?:

I've heard ALL this bitching because you didn't get:

- Liquid battery cooling
- 60, 80, 100 Kwh battery
- 200, 300, 400, 500mi range
- completely new body
- It's not as good as a Tesla that costs $60k more than a LEAF
- It's not as good as a Chevy! Bolt that costs $5k more and has no charging infrastructure
- Nissan is a terrible company because X
- Nissan lied to us
- Nissan doesn't care about us
- Whatever

I guess my reaction is, give me a break. Nissan has sold some 210,000 LEAF units worldwide, market acceptance is a definition of success. Absolutely NOBODY is twisting your arm to buy another LEAF, so I'd really, really appreciate it if all the people who are SO unhappy with Nissan NOT meeting their every single need to actually go buy something else if that's what they want to do.

Maybe next year we'll get a 60kwh battery next year and get 200mi range, but if you're expecting a space shuttle, you ought to go buy a space shuttle guys and do not expect a $35k car to tuck your shirt in every morning and make you breakfast.
