Nissan Leaf Colors

Tue Mar 16, 2010 6:40 am

Hi Jessica,

I ran across a site somewhere wondering what colors the Nissan Leaf might be available in, and that got me wondering too!

Do you know what colors will be available?

Thank you! Looking forward to the Leaf's release!

I liked the tone of the red color and chose that. For those that wanted to back and look at the choices I found this set of screen shots:

The blue appeared to be a very light powder blue, a very light pastel.
The dark colors are red and black.
I wanted a light color for night-time safety visibility, so white, silver, and the blue were available.
I thought the powder blue was nice, but thought the white might be more available.

Might of been nice if they'd have added green to the choices. :D

I wanted a green too. Hope the silver ends up being a darker one. Hint: The '09 Nissan 350Z color, Carbon Silver, would be perfect!

I'm hoping for a LIGHT silver so it reflects more heat!
