What is NVH
Noise, Vibration and Harshness. The more high-end the car, the better it's expected to do re NVH. Think Yugo vs. Mercedes.

That's weird. https://www.nissanusa.com/vehicles/elec ... specs.html, if you select S Plus thru SL Plus claims the curb weights range from 3,780 to 3,853 pounds.

I still can't believe there are typos there like when you select S Plus, it says "62kW Battery". :roll: Whoever put those pages together isn't an EV enthusiast.

4,060 pounds would be pretty porky. https://media.chevrolet.com/media/us/en ... .tab1.html says '19 Bolt is 3,563 pounds, but Bolt is 11 inches shorter than a Leaf and Chevy decided to use a fair amount of aluminum. I found a quote that says about Bolt:
“The hood, front fenders, doors, and liftgate outer are made of aluminum,” GM Spokesperson Fred Ligouri wrote. “The roof and rear quarter panel are steel. Body structure is a mixture of mild, high-strength and advanced high-strength steel.”
The hood was pretty obvious to me given how light it was.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

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

Does your SL have the all weather package? That adds some weight.
