I heard Nissan is going to guarantee the 2020 will increase your child bearing productivity by at least 25%.

That's right, the EV is sexy. Guaranteed.

Ahhhh maaaaannnnnn. I’m like 57 years old. Maybe a hamster or another chihuahua. But a kid. No freakin way. Might have to cancel my order. My wife says I’m already way too sexy.

Here is some information on the 2020 LEAF for the JDM. A subset of this will be part of the 2020 car for other geographies:

Thanks. My guess is none will make it into the 2020 North American leaf as it seems to me it would have been announced by now.

The part most likely to make it into WW production is the blindspot/collision avoidance feature as it uses the existing blindspot monitoring and lane keep assist technologies.

Interesting. I wonder if that ev cgarge station navigation software could be OTA updated later.

Also. They are talking about a 9 inch display. Seems to me the existing Eplus is an 8 inch display. Hmmm

Apparently one of the posters here was actually seeing / hearing an actual 2020 LEAF near Smyrna charging here: https://mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php? ... na#p573981

The article referenced above by Orient does say that a new sound called "canto" would be used as the pedestrian warning sound. The Smyrna poster reported hearing a "tron" like sound which matches the sound originally revealed here: https://youtu.be/p4cjPk8mqEM

The Smyrna person also reported a "large" screen so that seems to match the article stating upping the size to a 9", which is 1 inch bigger than the 8" unit on all plus units. It likely also has the full LCD instrument display with no physical Speedo.

Would be interesting to see what other features make it to production in the USA. Given that the debut isn't until 2020 Feb in Japan, it's likely around then we will hear for sure what really be in the NA / Europe versions.

So you think it might be a mid year change or do you think Smyrna is already producing Leafs with 9 inch screens.

I wouldnt call it a mid-year change. It's more of a "late" change. It's likely there a few being test driven now (hence why he saw / heard it) with production starting sometime 2020 Q1.
