2020's Finally Out

Mon Jan 20, 2020 2:26 pm

I just looked at the Nissan site and they are finally showing 2020 Leaf's. There is a new color too, kind of a copper color, they call it SUNSET DRIFT CHROMAFLAIR. It looks like the price has gone up a bit. We still like our 2019 SL Plus! :)

The price increase I am not into either, I think it is some of that blind spot detection and such that you and I both have. I have an SV plus with tech package and all weather package. USBc ports is not worth the upgrade. If they had a larger capacity battery and/or active battery cooling then I'd regret not holding for a 2020. I do not think raising prices is a good idea for the leaf they will just lose more who will jump to a model 3.

Your Tech Package doesn't include Around View, correct?

I just looked at the Nissan site...
Arrgh! Units errors! For example:

40 MINUTES
40 kWh BATTERY 80% [*]
50 kWh QUICK CHARGE

And, there are stupid mistakes under the Specs tab of https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/releas ... -press-kit.
"2020 Nissan LEAF 40kW Specifications" TWICE - seriously?

Still following the trend of 2/3 of the color offerings being gray-scale. *sigh*
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

My experience of those in Nissan's marketing arm(s) is that they are pretty typical Millenials - even when not chronologically so.

I noticed two more instances on https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/releas ... -press-kit (1st tab/page):
"3. EPA range for Nissan LEAF S and LEAF SV (40 kW) up to 149 miles. " and "2020 NISSAN LEAF 40kW SPECIFICATIONS.pdf "

Seriously?

Just think of ICE automotive ad copy. Now note that EVs are a specialized subgroup. Why are you surprised that copywriters don't know much about EVs?
