What's new for 2020?

I am considering buying a 2019 SL+. I am wondering if I should wait for the 2020. Will be anything new in the 2020 model?
The forum for all aspects of the Nissan Leaf
That is what makes me want to hold off on the much better range (but same car) they have now... I recently took a test drive in an E+ with my 18 y/o son... His reaction? It's our Leaf, only bit zippier..goldbrick wrote:Probably not much new in 2020 but the rumor mill says Nissan is planning to unveil a completely new EV 'platform' sometime around the 2021 model year. That could be late of course....
In general, EV tech is changing rapidly. No matter what you buy today, in a few years it will be old tech and the newer cars will probably be more capable.
If there is a new platform in the 2021 time frame that should help lower the values of the current plus models. I'm hoping the Leaf Plus resale is a poor as the older ones and I can get a used Plus in 3 years for $15k.powersurge wrote:
I am not sure I want to trade in my old (like-new), $9,000 Leaf for a Like-New $44,000 Leaf... They are the same car, and same ride when you drive down the road. There really is no upgrade to get a new one. No reason to buy a new one if your current car's range is what you drive...
