Sooooo

My wife’s new daily driver will be a 2020 Tesla Model 3 LR AWD Red with white interior and 19 inch sport rims. It will also be our road trip car. We are selling her smart electric.
Nice!

Seems like several people here have gotten model 3's. I think if it was in my price range I'd go for the model Y though. Or X! LOL

For what its worth, I have found a couple 2020's for sale in the greater LA area to my south, but not much variety yet. Or color choices. I think they were all grey-ish. I hate grey it seems like everyone is selling fifty shades of grey. (LOL!) Yeah if only... Nissan sells the car that whips YOU! But seriously black and fives shades of grey and white.... I got white because I'm in the desert otherwise that new orange color would be interesting. Something with color.
That new orange colour is very cool.
2020 Model 3 Tesla. AWD with FSD. Deep metallic blue. Our daily driver.
2016 Nissan Leaf SV 30KWh Culis Red. Sold. Was my daily driver. Loved that car.
EV only Family...well except for the big diesel motorhome. :shock:

I think what's overlooked is the software upgrades that are not reported in marketing materials. When I traded in the 2018 for 2019, I could tell instantly the ProPilot Assist had upgraded software. For example, the ping pong lane assist was much smoother and I'm pretty sure there were improvements in the intelligent cruise control as well.

I look forward to hearing feedback on the 2020 from folks.

That would be good, as my plan is now to get a leftover 2020 SV in 2021.

When we bought our 2019, the salesperson knew about the pro pilot updates and pointed out the reduced ping ponging. We had test drove a 2018 a year earlier and noticed the same. Pro pilot is pretty good. It’s great for eating and taking sips off your coffee.

I am very curious if the year 2 packs hold up better. I am hoping we can get more data pints from this board as time progresses.

I'm disappointed that we still seem to be seeing defective cells in 2019 40kwh Leafs.

In looking at the Nissan site, it looks like the 21 Leaf will have additional improvements to pro pilot.

But still no Pro Park in North America, I assume?

I was wondering about that. Is Nissan afraid of being sued by litigious Americans for some parking mistake or even parking and people getting out of the car dinging doors on the neighbouring car?

I don't know. Parking in Japanese mega-cities is supposed to be very difficult, so I don't see a technological obstacle...

Agree, that’s a legal thing. Toyota has had that in cars for years everywhere but North America.
