Yay. At least from the VIN, we know it was built in the US. Maybe seeing the '13 Leaf was the highlight of the event?

Also, rear headrests are about 1" shorter.

Does the dead body in the boot (I'm thinking TickTock may be British!) come standard with the 2013, or was that a direct result of yesterday's meeting? :lol:

Mark Perry? :-)

I was actually pretty excited about the 2013. Went down my checklist and they hit most of my gripes.
1) leather- check (OK, it is probably pleather, but as long as it lasts and cleans as well I don't care)
2) climate control - They fixed this right. You can set the heat temperature separately from the cooling temperature so no energy consumed if temps are in your defined acceptable band
3) rear headrests - improved (although not quite as nice as those on the Leafs sold in Japan)
4) 6.6kW charger - check
5) efficient heater - check
6) visor extension - check
7) better capacity guage - meh. Improved. They added a %SOC which is nice, but doesn't tell me how much charge I have left in absolute terms. However, this is a lot better than the 12 bars on the earlier models.

P.S. I am not British - perhaps Andy inspired me. :-)
