Why pay attention to someone who posts non-verifiable information (speculation) for their very first post on MNL??? :lol:

Strange that his or her account is from back in 2012, yet this is the first post. The info certainly "sounds" legit, but who knows?

I didn't find any of this info posted here so I apologize in advance if this is a repost.

Don't ask, just read.

2016 LEAF trim levels will break down as follows:

S 24kWh
SV 30kWh
SL 30kWh

OK Nissan, I really wish that you had done this a year ago. If you had done this sooner, I might still be your customer.

Now if you would just extend the capacity warrantee to 100,000 miles instead of 60,000 it would be worth a 2nd look.

Long time lurker, never post much as you can tell. I tend to stick to the Z/G boards over at The370Z.com and G35Driver.com given that I drive a '13 Z34 but I'm a pretty big Nissan guy all the way around and sometimes post over at Maxima.org and JukeForums.com. I can't blame the doubters for doubting, I'd probably be weary too if the tables were turned, but as you can see here:

I posted the trim level breakdown and color availability way before the A36 was unveiled in New York. Guess the non-believers will have to find out for themselves whether or not what I posted is legit. :mrgreen:

Good answer! Here's hoping. Will current Leaf owners be able to buy a 30 kwh Lizard pack to upgrade their Leaf?

You leaked the Maxima's colors in February, it was unveiled in April, and it's available this summer. So that's like 5 or 6 months from when you had your information to when it came out. So are we looking at October/November for the 2016 Leaf?

30 kWh would be nice. You can get it now with the Soul, of course, but two options in the just-barely-over-100-mile camp would certainly be nice. That would mean one charge stop for me on the way to Eugene (instead of two), and it might actually make a trip up to Vancouver just enough less annoying to be doable.

This appears to be Nissan's answer to the Kia Soul EV, but obviously they will have to compete against the GM Bolt in just 1.5 years (likely a 36-40kWh battery).

The Tesla Model 3 will likely be offered as a 50kWh car, with a real 200 mile range at 55mph on perfect days.

I'll theorize that the 24kWh is just software limited version of 30kWh.

I'll theorize that the 24kWh packs are a way for them to get rid of any inventory of the old chemistry while they transition to the new chemistry.
