The info seems solid enough. Its all about how we choose to accept it. I didn't see "anything" that said or implied that deliveries would be delayed...

What info is solid, all we know it was postponed, we do not know if it will be re-introduced at a later date. No info given that I saw that deliveries will start at a certain time. If solid enough for you, you are sure entitled to that. Good luck.

How do you know this to be true? We know from press reports that the 60kwh version has been postponed. How do you know it starts up end of March/April ?


Because I am in the business and asked the people responsible for postponing the launch announcement. And to clarify, press reports do not say that the 60kwh version has been postponed, but that the launch announcement has been postponed.

“While the automakers have stressed that operations and business are proceeding as normal, Nissan has postponed the launch of its high-performance Leaf electric car “to ensure that this important product unveiling could receive the coverage it merits”, a Nissan spokesman said.”


That sure sounds to me like Nissan is saying that the launch is postponed and not just the announcement.

A launch and an announcement are the same thing. Availability is different. Availability has not changed.

Since they never gave a definitive, I suppose your assertion cannot be disproven. Whatever. In my opinion, the car is already late.

Lets look at some recent history...

I googled 2018 LEAF launch date;

2018 Nissan Leaf release date
Nissan Leaf 2018: Release date and price. The new Nissan Leaf was announced on 6 September 2017, several weeks before the Tokyo Motor Show. It will go on sale on 2 October in Japan, with the US, Canada and Europe following in January 2018.

OE makes a good point -- the unveiling was delayed. The start of sales and ramp, both in Japan out internationally, have been and remain opaque.

My OP jumped to unwarranted conclusions. This may be nothing more than NIssan needing some time to replace Ghosn at the unveiling.
