Agreed. We even have an entire section devoted to the 2018 Leaf or "gen 2" at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewforum.php?f=55. And, the title of this post isn't descriptive either.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

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

I think they are already available for purchase. At least for orders. I think Nissan dealers are already taking orders. But I would really love for the next generation Leafs to have at least some of these cool features that Byton has.

Not one of those "5 cool features" that Byton has in it's concept car is something I think a Tesla needs.
Imagine a screen that is almost 3.3 feet wide. That would certainly give the Tesla owners a much better user experience.
How is that a much better user experience? Does it make driving the car easier?
4. Hand Gesture Control
What if you could control your screen by remotely swiping your fingers over it.
I think voice control is a better approach. Tesla's is already excellent and the upcoming OTA updateto the 3 to allow everything to be voice controlled is likely going to top waving my hands around the car.
5. Smart Watch Customization
In the future Byton wants to connect the hand gesture control to smart watch so that when the driver enters the car the system can throw your vitals up on the screen.
Uh, why?


Tesla has a cool feature that Byton should continue to work to mimic. It builds and sells production cars.

The biggest issue I have with the Model 3 is having to do everything in the car through the tablet. Voice may be better, but I guess I'm old school where I would rather flip a switch to turn on my wipers instead of having to say something like "Tesla, turn on my wipers" or "Open my glove box" or "Turn on the air conditioner - no, it's too cold, make it warmer. Now it's too warm, turn it down" or whatever. I think there is a fine line between innovation and simply making something needlessly complicated. About the only negative I'm hearing about the Model 3 (outside of the reported problems people are having already) is the tablet. If it had the same system like the S or X had, I'd be on board with it.
