So now the cost of the 2018 increases by another $1,600?

No, because the S is the only model that doesn't have it standard. As was the case before.

Yea same in 2011 when I bought my LEAF without an L3 port.
Everyone said I was crazy dumb. Never needed it and never really had an opportunity. Saved me $1,000.
By all means get L3 if you have the need and the facility to actually use it.

More range goes both ways. For some L3 will be needed more and for others the added range eliminates the need for L3.
1 bar lost at 21,451 miles, 16 months.
2 bar lost at 35,339 miles, 25 months.

If you are a 2+ vehicle household and your other vehicle is a gasser, plug-in hybrid, or BEV with L3 capabilities, there’s a good chance you won’t need a quick charge port on a new Leaf.

Yes, on the 1st but probably not by enough to recoup the cost when selling. Agree on the latter.
SageBrush wrote:It is also pointless to pay for the L3 port if there is no useful network.
Useful of course depends on L3 availability and customer requirements.

Agree.

Agree. When in the market for a used '13 Leaf, I intentionally didn't want to pay $1K to $1.5K extra for a car w/the quick charge + LED headlight package. I already lived with it on a leased '13 Leaf for 2 years. I used the CHAdeMO inlet about 16 times.

'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

The true cost difference btwn the Leaf and Bolt/M3 just reduced by $1,600.

I love my Leaf, but this is not cool.

QC plus what?

because it does include other things besides the port. :)

I watched a video about this and it's just an adapter that fits over the standard charge cable plug - still a good thing and I'm surprised this isn't standard for everyone anyway.
