Nice. I can buy one used for my kid in five years for cheap! I'd actually drive one. Just for commuting, it'd be great.
40kW is enough for most people most of the time, short range commuters can rely on a singe charge a week, longer range, such as myself, will have that extra margin. Let's face it, the Leaf will remain the best selling EV nameplate for a while longer. It's like the Toyota Corolla of EVs.
Looks good (if a bit tall). good price.
Too lazy to read, did they finally give it's battery pack liquid cooling?
Now, I think Nissan's current design direction is awful, but this new Leaf fits in quite nicely with the Murano and Maxima.
There are some nice touches, here and there, but there is simply too much going on.
The detailing of the "grille" is really cool, but the cut-line, where the hood meets grille seems to be too far back.
All of these cars with this trendy floating roof and blacked out C or D pillars are going to look like sh!t in 5 years, when the black paint/vinyl starts
to fade from black-to-gray-to-white.
So far this is a huge step in the right direction for Nissan and I like the way it looks. I might have to check it out as it can handle 90% of the trips I would take and also has Android Auto which I want in all future cars I purchase!
I'm debating on putting off the SUV purchase to get one these for most of my driving.

The panel gap/fitment on those pre-pro models is pretty bad, especially around the hood/charging port/bumper area. [/TCL,noxenons,samson,me, etc.]
Man they're setting themselves up for the $19,999 (post federal incentives) Leaf S aren't they? That's gotta be enticing to people, and it's got to put pressure on i3 values as well!
I think it'll be a home run at their pricing, and I think a lot of people on the fence have been softening up to the limited range of EVs, and the new sweet spot might just be more like 150 miles. guess we'll see! Has anyone plotted the upcoming range/$ of all the upcoming models to see what the trend is and how well all these models fit? Or is that just the data nerd in me coming through?
