How do they order a model that hasn't had prices and options announced?


No idea. If the price goes down we pay less. I doubt that will happen. We won't see it till late february or early march as we are out of the country for a bit.

I assume that the SL Plus still has leather interior only, and the SV Plus has no Around View available?

Yepir. We asked if there are any options available for the SL. Nope.

No convertible option then....

I guess if you are ordering the top trim then options don't matter, but if I did it again I'd probably still go for an SV (i like the fabric in my hot area) with Tech and All weather packages.

Did they require a deposit?



Sounds like it will be pretty similar then if the option packages and trim levels are the same. I'd still think they would update something.



I have noticed near me a dealer starting to mark down their 2019's a bit - 4k off a SL plus model.

Yep. A grand but there was a double points option on the credit card so we put down 2 grand.

They also need to make battery packs that retrofit into older cars, at a much more reasonable price.


So that is your wish list, not what "will" happen....

This is a speculation thread. That's what you get in a speculation thread.

I was basing my speculation on the items that are most complained about for the existing car. Their sales have taken a beating. They need to either drop the EV line or fix the primary problem/s. I have a tiny little bit of faith that they might do the second.

I like this as a wish list, but I think it's probably a bad bet as a prediction.

Re: the bolded part, have they? Do you have some global sales figures for Leaf for 2019 YTD vs. previous years?

Sure, in the US, Model 3 is decimating everyone else in sales but there are plenty of EV markets outside the US besides Nissan having expanded into more markets.
