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

Available Exterior Colors:

Forged Bronze
Brilliant Silver
Glacier White
Gun Metallic
Coulis Red
Deep Blue Pearl
Super Black
Pearl White

Available Options Packages:

Charger Package is still an option on the S model and still contains the ChaDeMo port and the 6.6kW OBC. No more QC + LED Headlight Package option on the SV, that equipment appears to come as standard on the '16 SV (not confirmed but I don't see the option so I'm assuming the ChaDeMo port is standard, not sure about the LED headlights but I'd bet those are there as well). Premium Package with Bose + AVM is still an option on both the SV and the SL (really should be standard on the SL IMO).

In short, bigger battery, more colors, many of which will be debuting on the A36 Maxima (Coulis Red and Forged Bronze). No more MorningSky Blue which is a shame as it was a nice color on the '15, but Deep Blue Pearl is one hell of a color IMO. It was originally an R35 GT-R exclusive color which found it's way onto the Z34 for 2016 and will also be available on the A36 '16 Maxima, I think most folks will love it. Anyways, hope this isn't a repost, enjoy being in the know.

Aloha

30kWh pack would translate to roughly 105 mile range.
84 miles / 24 kWh = x / 30 kWh

Any thoughts when 2016 will be available?

Nice to see a range increase but I had hoped for at least 36 kWh. I guess we'll have to wait for 2017 or later for real range increase.

I am curious to where you got the information? Dealership ordering catalog update that has these new specs ahead of the half year mark?

Nice -- the two battery sizes seems like a very nice transition to a larger battery down the road!

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

First off, where is this information coming from?

Second, do we think that 30 kWh is usable or total?

25% increase in capacity? I guess that's a start, but falls quite short of what most of us were hoping for. But, that 25% would be enough in my case to remove any range anxiety. Now, if they would just offer us an upgrade option to the 30kWh pack when they give me my warranty replacement pack. I'd gladly pay them an extra couple grand. 8-)
