Actually your Tesla comments are clearly in the flame category. Your posting history suggests what I wrote was correct. BTW, that comes neither in the offensive nor abusive category. Those generally mean discussion that is not civil.

Some years back we also decided (as a community) to have light moderation. Otherwise most of your FUD about Tesla would have been deleted.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?

If Nissan wants to continue offering 24kw packs my guess is they would need to couple them with an e85 epower solution as an option.

They could then compete with the I3 and Volt , an e85 fuel cell if 50% eff or more would level the Prius competition

This is because I generally see them only as admissions of impotence by the parties hurling the insults, requiring no reply.
Do you take issue with the accusation that your hatred of tesla is irrational; do you think it is rational? Or, do you feel you don't hate tesla? At the least it seems you are particularly hard on tesla in ways you are not its competitors.

I'd like Regen fully-adjustable on the fly. A "trim wheel" would be perfect. I'd settle for flappy-paddles.

Cabin temperature controlled by a simple knob with tactile feedback, not buttons. If I want it 5 degrees cooler, I want to just reach over to where I know the knob is, and rotate it through 5 detents in the desired direction. Even better, let me separately control the max HVAC wattage , and divorce that control from the so-called ECO mode.

A remote-control interface designed by people who don't think 5 MINUTES is a reasonable response-time. Get that down to under 5 seconds. And four 9s availability as a minimum. Stop pretending it's great. Instead, MAKE it great.

Ability to set per-driver preferences for:
-drive mode
-b mode
-default console display screen
-seat and steering wheel positions

Delete the trees display.

Add a HUD for vehicle speed and battery percent.

Redo the console in a way that suggests someone at Nissan understands human interface design.

Rear headrests that can be seen through, or which pivot out of the rear-view when not in use.

And, would it spoil some vast eternal plan.... if the cabin air filter were easy to get to?

I noticed you're still working with polymers.

So it's a waste of time to discuss anything? Why not just shut the forum down then?

Possibility of being announced eventually: 10%

Preferably, by allowing end charge levels anywhere from 10% to 90%. (Thanks for the suggestion, WetEV)
Without this feature, I will pass on upgrading my 2016 LEAF. It pains me to not have this feature with Tesla and Bolt offering some version of less-than-full charging. Currently, I only charge when I plan to use the car the next day, but I would like to plug it in nightly like I do with my Bolt and Model S.

I loved the 80% option in my earlier LEAFs. I would plug in nightly and leave it plugged in when not in use.
