Leaf to soldier on beside Arriya in Nissan lineup.

Good morning fellow leaf fans. Found this article. Thought I would share. I kinda like the idea of the leaf continuing on. We still do t need a second vehicle but if we do it would still be our more economical go to.

Cheers.

Re: Leaf to soldier on beside Arriya in Nissan lineup.

I think it's very valuable pr to keep both cars in the fleet. I believe many ev interested buyers with go to buy an Ariya and leave with a Leaf. Curious if the Leaf goes ccs in a couple years.

Re: Leaf to soldier on beside Arriya in Nissan lineup.

I do wonder if future outside outside Japan and China Leafs will go to CCS soon/at all or if it'll just go away before that happens. Right now, having CHAdeMO in the US is unfortunately, a liability vs. having CCS. (Thanks, EA!)

I'm glad to hear it's not going to die off. But "soldier on" is not going to be good enough once the Fed incentives run out. Nissan will have to update/upgrade the Leaf to sell at full price.

It doesn't need that much to be a great 45 state car. Fix the charge issue, especially with the 40kwh version, add a few more convenience features - and at least an 80% charge option! - and maximize the cargo area, maybe greatly reduce or eliminate the liftover height so that it competes with crossovers in carrying cargo. And electric AWD shouldn't be all that hard to implement, as an option.

There is a rumor on Facebook that the Nissan booth at the St. Louis car show was telling people that a chademo ccs adapter was coming from Nissan soon.

My understanding is they are turning it into a crossover loosely based on the Chill-Out concept vehicle. Since the Ariya is going CCS for the US market I can't imagine them keeping a newly platformed Leaf as Chademo.

It'll be interesting to see what they come up with since the Ariya seems fairly impressive in its own right but the flood of EV models is starting and i imagine they are taking a look at what Hyundai/Kia are doing.

Re: Leaf to soldier on beside Arriya in Nissan lineup.

Funny enough, I think Chademo will carry in Europe much longer than the US. There are 5 different Chademo cars there vs. 2 here.

It'll be interesting to see what comes out as 2023 LEAF when its announced sometime around mid-year. I am not keeping my hopes high for major changes but one can never know...

I would hope there are no changes for sake of changes. Going to CCS combo would make sense. I can see the tweaks between my wife's 2018 and my 2020, so little improvements are cool. I know everyone would love for it to have a TMS, but I would like to see how Nissan did it in the Ariya first. I've seen enough battery break down videos of other manufactures to show the difference between a short term setup (using a bunch of connected hoses that have lots of failure points) and a more expensive, but probably better long term solution such as having all the piping built into the case for cooling, less failure points, etc.
