Anyone seen a 2020 Eplus on a lot yet?

Wed Dec 04, 2019 4:28 pm

As per the title. Anybody seen a 2020 Eplus on a lot yet? Seems weird that there are none at any dealerships we have checked.
2020 Model 3 Tesla. AWD with FSD. Deep metallic blue. Our daily driver.
2016 Nissan Leaf SV 30KWh Culis Red. Sold. Was my daily driver. Loved that car.
EV only Family...well except for the big diesel motorhome. :shock:

The local dealer here in Boulder - where they sell a lot of Leafs - lists 117 new Leafs at the moment and all are 2019. Some are actually here and some are 'coming soon'.

I have not heard of any specs on the 2020 yet, I am assuming it will be the same as the 2019. I may go by the Boulder dealer in question to get a 2019 plus when the 2020s arrive

The Nissan USA website doesn't have the 2020 leaf available as far as I could tell. It only talks about the 2019.

I've seen the one that a Nissan HQ employee was driving with manufacture tags. I live right next to the Nissan USA headquarters and use their QC a lot. Two nights ago, a different sounding leaf pulled up next to me. It was the 2020, recognized it from the pictures. The guy let me snoop around and ask questions. I liked what I saw, futuristic new "tron" sounding drive noise and totally LCD screen for speed console, large touchscreen for in the middle for controls, 62 kw/h battery, etc. At least compared to my 2013, sits higher up, etc. He pulled in at 20% charge and was at 70% when I left 20 minutes later. I went from 1% to 65% in that time. He said they just started making them in Smyrna so I don't think you'll see them on a lot anywhere yet...

Did it look like a 2019? Are you sure it was a leaf and not a concept for the 2021?

This report doesn't seem to make sense but would be interesting if true. First, it's already middle of December and there hasn't been a single ad / article / announcement from Nissan on any 2020 MY changes or even when they will make it available to the dealers.

It seems it "looks" the same but "sounds" different with a gigantic touchscreen a la Tesla in the middle? I'm guessing given the poster here was driving a 2013, even a 2018 MY might look futuristic as these all have the LCD speed and middle touchscreen (7"- 8" depending on MY).

I would like to hear more.

My thoughts exactly. New sound sounds interesting though.

I've looked at some pictures of the 2019/2018 interior/exterior, this was a 2020,
This link looks closest to what I saw.

Yes, it was dark and the sound pulling in was not the normal leaf hum, more Tron like. At first I thought it was another make because the sound was unfamiliar.
