I don’t get the hate for the analog speedo. I like it a lot. And you can always pull up a digital one on the little screen to the left.

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.


Promo's generally end/start every month so this is simply business as usual.

I'd like a version without TMS, maybe with a smaller battery than 60kWh. TMS increases the risk of battery fires, perhaps shortens battery life in very cool places like where I live, decreases reliability and costs more.

I'd like a large, centered digital speedometer. On all the time, not just when the correct screen is enabled.

I'd like the ability to control how full the battery is charged to. As well as timers to control when the battery is charged.

I'd like a faster and more reliable remote climate start.

I like the interior of the car mostly as it is. Perhaps a bit more knee room for the driver.

TMS that is configurable is nice but TBH, its not all its cracked up to be. Yeah, in this area, TMS has limited value in most cases. I'd rather have a fan that I can turn on and off as I feel the need but if we are dreaming,

I definitely want custom charge levels. Not sure what is stopping Nissan since EVERYONE else offers it. Even if not accurate, I wouldn't care as long as it was consistent.

Wi Fi. Everything has it nowadays so in reality, how much would it cost? I am not afraid of being hacked. Simply allow basic features and controls that do not allow driving the car. That is all I want anyway.

Speedometer? do whatever you want with it. I still am searching for the reason why its such a big deal.

Interior; Make it an easier fold flat option. I went camping in my LEAF the other day and I can say, it can be done. Bring back rear seat heaters.

Hey Jonathan. Not really a hate. Just a preference. I have a coworker with a 2018 and he is fine with the analog speedometer.

Over the weekend, German Nissan Leaf Facebook page started posting notices from dealers saying orders for the new e-plus will be accepted from October. The notice also said it was a 64kWh battery and had TMS. There was also a lot of chatter on the weekend on twitter for the e-plus in Eastern European countries mentioning the same date. Nothing verifiable or attributable to an official Nissan person as yet.

Today I was waiting at the dealership while my 2013 Leaf was being serviced, and I asked about the availability of the 2019 Leaf. The general manager told me that Nissan had assigned him six 2019 Leafs, all 40 kW, I believe. This is consistent with Nissan's previous statement that the 60 kW version will follow later. He has no information on pricing (or none that he was willing to share). He thinks production will begin in October and the cars will arrive around Christmas.

^^^^
You mean 40 or 60 kWh, not "kW". Battery capacity is measured in kWh.

Please see http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 69#p520169.

Unless a dealer has been briefed on, received notification or has personal contacts w/insiders, you've got to take what they say about future products with a grain of salt. Example was mine at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 66#p287166. Nissan Maxima still doesn't have a V8 engine.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
