Can you update your location info via your user name in the upper right > User Control Panel > Profile tab? That way, we don't need to ask in future posts/threads or do sleuthing to deduce it.
What are your daily driving needs in terms of miles? How much city vs. highway? Will you have the ability to charge at your work/destinations?

Whats the differences in car set up regards to leaf's that are sold in warm places like Florida and other places in cold North like Philadelphia and New York?
I'm not aware of any changes for warm vs. cold regions starting from model year 2012. Per https://www.autoblog.com/2011/07/19/201 ... equipment/
, CWP became standard w/model year 2012.viewtopic.php?t=4404
has some details on the battery warmer.
However, with 2016 and 2017 model years, you needed to get the SL trims to get the rear heated seats. See http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... -press-kit
and http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... -press-kit
under Specs tab.

I'm not aware of anything official from Nissan to achieve what you want.
It's doubtful there's any room around the pack for insulation. https://web.archive.org/web/20120510121 ... =38&t=3896
was a look under the '11.
Folks did insulate pipes for the crap, slow to heat, power pig '11 and '12 water-block heater. See viewtopic.php?t=15392
was discussion on speculation on why they used that. '13+ Leafs don't use that stupid water-block heater.
Perhaps something similar can be done on '13+ Leafs? Maybe?
You're going to had significant range reduction in winter in cold weather, esp. if it's below freezing and there's snow on the ground.
