2020 vs. 2021 Leaf SL Plus comparison

Wed Jan 13, 2021 9:11 am

Can someone either list or point me to a website to explain the difference between the 2020 and 2021 Leaf SL Plus?
My lease expires in Sept. 2021. My dealer contacted me about taking my car back and putting me in a 2020, not a 2021, so want to find out the differences. thanks.

There is another thread on this topic, somewhere in these forums. The short version - nothing significant has changed, it's the same car.

search for 2020 Nissan Leaf Press Kit and then look at the specs. 2021 specs are easy to find on nissan.com

You may want to see if "auto recirculate" (called partial recirculate here) in floor + defrost mode has returned on the 2021, because it is gone on the 2020.

That's not the right site. There was a domain squabble so nissanusa.com and nissannews.com are the often used domains for Nissan USA.

Leaf press kits below:
https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/releas ... -press-kit
https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/releas ... ss-kitLeaf

One can go to the specs tab.

viewtopic.php?f=27&t=31717 is a 2021 thread...

Calling it a domain squabble is somewhat demeaning? Nissan Motor tried to steal the guy's domain name (https://www.digest.com/Big_Story.php). This was a big win in domain name disputes where the "big guy" with lots of legal muscle tried to squash the little guy.

Sorry. I never looked into the details or frankly was really interested in the dispute/battles. Was mainly trying to make a quick correction as to the proper web site to visit since nissan.com is not the right place to look for info on Nissan vehicles. I do have a day job that keeps me busy.

I also am not a lawyer and am also unclear about what https://www.dbllawyers.com/can-lose-tra ... nfringers/ points out
There is a great deal of uncertainty in the courts with respect to the effect on one’s trademark rights of a failure to prosecute infringers. Some courts maintain that it makes no difference whatsoever. Other courts have concluded that the failure to prosecute can result in the abandonment or loss of trademark rights. And still others have found a middle ground in holding that the failure to prosecute can reduce the strength of a mark but not result in total abandonment.

All my fault....I should have just said 'Nissan web site'. In other words, 2021 specs aren't hard to find.

Hi, there is a big change between 2020 vs 2021 Leaf and that is 2021 costs $200 more. That's it!
Nissan gives up on the leaf.
Dual motor, com'on, it's been 10 years, nope
Dump Chadamo for CCS, nope
Littel tweaks to gain few miles, nope
Little acceleration boost, nope
Ok, fine. How about just a new exciting color, nope
