I'm under the impression that the rear headrests were significantly smaller, even though they are not collapsible, as you rightly noted.

any word from the Chels on last night?
or efforts to get Nissan to fill in our questionnaire.
I am particularly interested in their fudge on the battery price issue. is there a date yet?

Andy vowed to provide a battery price by Spring, but no firm date was given.

Chelsea's compiled list of questions was completely skipped over and not brought up at all last night. There's no indication that Nissan would answer it outside of the meeting, either.

Nissan started out by making their statements in 3 main areas of concerns, then went straight to taking the audience's questions.

Actually, the charger is 6.0kW output. I was surprised at this, as the output of the old one was 3.3kW, so they've actually only added 2.7kW instead of doubling it.

Yep, that's listed in the 2013 spec chart that someone posted. Nissan has a7 hour charging time for the 3.3 and 4 hours for the 6.6/6.0.

what did Andy actually say:
"sometime in spring"
or
"sometime in spring, march/april"

spring runs until June 20th. and I got the impression that Andy didnt mention a month.
i could be wrong about that.

It's not proper to call the new one 6.6kW, any more than calling the old one 3.84kW (what it draws).

When Andy was asked for a date, he said Spring. Then someone asked when in Spring, and he said Mar./Apr.
