Oh, they had an answer... no. They mentioned all the wiring harness changes, etc.
I think I heard that the 6.6kW will actually be in the front of the vehicle, with the layout of the components under the front hood being somewhat redone for the next model refresh.
BAYLEAFs made the point that one of our primary interests in this dialog is to do what we can to help them sell more cars. In that regard, I think we don't really know what we are doing, so hopefully Nissan can "steer us" if they think there is some way we can help. So with that said, I am mindful of the concern that "talking up" a future model too much could hurt short term sales as we don't want to make someone go into "wait and see" mode.
So, for anyone on the fence, little future improvements might be accompanied by a price increase (but hopefully not), so waiting could be a mistake!
6.6kW will be a nice little improvement, but many people are doing just fine even with only 3.3kW
