Re: 300-mile LEAF to be Announced this Month?

I did start https://mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=29000 about Tokyo Motor Show 2019. If you're a car enthusiast, esp. Japanese cars, I highly recommend it.

Since it's rather pricey to buy airplane tix to go now... I guess one will have to wait 2 years. It only is held every other year.

'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

The big question is will the 85ish kwh battery fit under a current leaf?

If we are 10 weeks out from the 2020my launch and no one has said anything then nothing notable has changed.

Nope. The 2020 will have

a 90 Kwh battery chryogenically cooled
Zero to sixty sub 3 seconds
passenger ejection seat (operable by driver only)
Full solar roof able to charge the car under moonlight

Those are just the confirmed points. I’ll leave the rest as a surprise. :)

I heard the ejector seat was for the rear seats...something about child behavior incentivizor or something.

Sorry, but they won't be able to initially get regulatory approval for the ejector seats in the US, and they might not fly in Europe, either.

The story I heard is they are going to install the hardware anyway, and then later enable it with an up-and-over-the-air update. ;)

If enabled, will they fly? At least for a few seconds?

If the rumor mill is to be believed it has a TMS, uses Tesla - like 811 chemistry, and dumps CHAdeMO.

Smart moves by Nissan if true. The electric CUV market segment is all the rage these days. I hope it succeeds.
And of course having the idiotic posts defending continuation of the LEAF tech die out is jut icing on the cake.

I'm waiting for the "the LEAF was great for its day ..." blah blah blah

As a used EV purchase, the LEAF offers exceptionally good value. So, I'm looking forward to buying a heavily depreciated 2018 in a few years from now, which hopefully I'll drive until it starts falling apart.
