All Nissan has said for the US is Spring 2019 which implies anytime between March 20 and June 21st.

I doubt it'd be any earlier than tax credit on GM vehicles being cut in half, which is supposed to happen April 1st.

https://insideevs.com/gm-federal-tax-cr ... 00000-evs/ is claiming it'll be April 1st for GM.

Judging by the diagram at https://insideevs.com/top-6-automakers- ... dit-limit/ (from phaseout section at bottom of https://web.archive.org/web/20170303004 ... xevb.shtml), April 1st sounds right.

Unless I'm having a brain fart, for it to be July 1st for GM, they'd needed to hit 200K in Q1 2019.

According to inside EVs article:
Two-thirds of 3.ZERO Limited Edition LEAFs e+ already pre-ordered in Europe
https://insideevs.com/nissan-leaf-e-plus-order-europe/

Seems like they really like the Leaf in Norway. Glad to see it is off to a strong start!

I hope that Nissan can truly build enough to satisfy demand. If they do, and can keep the prices reasonable, the e-Plus might just be enough to keep the Leaf's global sales lead over the Model 3. At least for a little while longer.

Nissan seems to be very happy with their conservative sales rate as they prepare to EOL the current LEAFs based on the B platform. Right now they are very quietly preparing their dedicated BEV platform that will support both Nissan and Infiniti vehicles. Another possible reason for their conservative sales is that they may be supply constrained on the current generation of traction batteries that they are receiving from AESC as it transitions to its new ownership. I suspect that their dedicated BEV platform will have a different architecture than they currently use.

Since they do not compete with Tesla and still own the under $40K market, I understand their strategy.
