Re: 2019 "60 kWh" Leaf e-Plus

My source is on the production side in N. America. Therefore, he probably wouldn't know much about pricing, marketing, etc. He does however know about production schedules and may have some info. on configuration changes. It's kind of a friend of a friend situation, so I try not to be too demanding. I will see if I can get an update.

Are you referring to the 2019 40 kWh version here?

I know many forum members are interested in the e-Plus 60 kWh version, but for me 40 kWh will be enough even in winter and after years of battery degradation. That would be a big increase over my 2013 24 kWh Leaf which has degraded by about 16%. It has served me well, and for the occasional out-of-range trip, my wife has a Prius. I want a new Leaf mainly for the driver-assist capabilities including one-pedal driving. I'm not looking for faster acceleration.

I'm talking specifically about the 2019 60 kWh LEAF.

@JonathanT I think you are assuming that the 2019 LEAF, all trims, will have TMS. However, I'm more cynical - I think the 40 kWh offering will not have TMS. Hope I'm wrong.

The current "Save on the last of our 2018 models before they're gone" offers on nissanusa.com end on 9/04/2018.

The 2018 LEAF was revealed on 9/5/2017. http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... issan-leaf

Perhaps there will be a 2019 LEAF reveal around that time this year, which is a week from today.

I agree with you and will be surprised if the 40 kWh 2019 version has TMS. I expect it will be Leaf 2.1, the 2018 Leaf with a few minor changes/improvements at the same price or maybe a little more.

Thanks. Do you have any information on whether the 2019 40 kWh version will appear before the 60 kW e-Plus? Presumably it could be simultaneous but won't be later.

Yes, I was tempted by the incentives to buy a 2018 Leaf, but last week the dealer told me that production had stopped (I inferred around the end of July), and I prefer not to buy a car that has been sitting on hot asphalt for a few weeks, possibly fully charged. So I've decided to wait for the 2019 40 kWh version.

We are also settling into the idea of an extended range 2020 Nissan Leaf to replace one of our cars. But they will have to lose the analogue Speedo. The new dash is a step backwards from our 2016 Leaf.

The smart thing would be to make a digital (and maybe HUD as well) speedo part of the Tech Package.
