Looking at what they are reportedly doing with 2016

S - 24 kWh
SV - 30 kWh
SL - 30 kWh

my guess for Gen 2 (MY2017) is

S - 30 kWh
SV - 50 kWh
SL - 60 kWh (or 50 kWh)

I'm also wondering whether the battery physical size for Gen 2 will be the same as Gen 1.

I'm gonna go with 36/48/60 for the three battery sizes, but 36/48/48 wouldn't surprise me either.

I'd be amazed if the SV and SL had different capacities. Not so much if they both came with the 30KWH battery as standard equipment, with a larger size optional for both.

Before the announcement I'd have thought they would make larger battery optional - but looks like they'll tie battery sizes to models/trims.

Nissan said double the range, so I'll double the battery pack size to 48 for 2017. I suspect there still will be a low end option, don't know if that is 24 or 30.
I think it will be 2018 before they reach 200+ mile range. They don't need to compete with $37.5K bolt initially. Leaf is a bigger car.

S 24 kWh $26.9k
SV 36 kWh $30.9k
SL 48 kWh $34.9k

6.6 kW charger and QC standard on S and SV, 10 kW charger and QC on SL, optional on SV.

Nissan installs 100kW QCs near all Tesla locations. Pigs learn to fly.

LEAF vs Prius equiv.

LEAF Gen 1 gets renamed LEAF Select or something else to distinguish it from Gen 2
LEAF Select 24kWh (Prius C) CARB special
LEAF Select 30kWh (Prius C)

LEAF Gen 2 appears similar to a Leaf Gen 1, but styled much attractively
LEAF Gen 2 is actually on a different platform to LEAF Gen 1, increased wheelbase, premium feel
LEAF Gen 2 36kWh restricted supply, 1 per dealer
LEAF Gen 2 45kWh (Prius / Mirai)

eNV200 24-45kWh delivery van, 2 seater
eNV200 24-30kWH (Prius V) 5 seater
eNV200 24-30kWh 7 seater

24 kWh = standard energy cells 2P 96S
30 kWh = higher energy cells 2P 96S
36 kWh = standard energy cells 3P 96S (ie new pack)
45 kWh = higher energy cells 3P 96S (ie new pack)
