If Gen 2 had come out this year...

Mon Nov 13, 2017 7:11 am

Just a thought I had and wondered what others thought.

If the Leaf Gen 2 had been released this year, would Tesla already be bankrupt? I am not a Tesla basher by any means, but it seems like Nissan wasted an opportunity to bury its competition. If Nissan were 1 year ahead of schedule I think the EV landscape would look a lot different.

Of course, the same could be said for Tesla. If they were 1 year ahead of schedule the Nissan Leaf Gen 2 would seem like an industry laggard.

I don't think so. I don't think I'm the only one planning to wait for the experience of the Phoenix owners over a couple summers before going for another Leaf.
The Bolt is widely available in California -- no battery failure baggage, hasn't seemed to dent Tesla's Teflon armor.
