So what would be worth waiting for?"We think the all-new Leaf will exceed expectations," he suggested, "in range, technology, design, and value."
Range: 250-300 EPA
Possible 300 with 60 kWh if they got the Cd down low enough?
Technology: V2H, I'd like to power my house in an outage.
I'm not ready for all the ProPilot stuff, still want to drive myself, but that might get me a lower priority if I don't order that package.
Design: Don't care much how it looks as long as the Cd is low. Power and a quick acceleration would be nice. Spacious cabin too, heck, why not vans, suvs, trucks, should have more models by now. Real gauges with usable information like kWh remaining and other, similar items I have to use LeafSpy for now.
Value: S 30 kWh $25k
SV 45 kWh $30k
SL 60 kWh $35k
Not realistic? OK, but worth waiting for. Who knows if there'll be federal credits by then anyway? It's an uncertain world.
