Not necessarily a disappointment, if priced to match.
Nissan is narrowing it's Infiniti market greatly, by building a BEV. I think they are smart to make it an "entry level" one, so as not to have too high a sticker, and narrow the market further.
As per my previous thread posts, the better aero and (possibly) lower weight, might give real improvement over the LEAF, in freeway range,and it will certainly have improved acceleration.
As to it's looks, well..
When I first saw the LEAF in photos, I was almost scared away. It looked a lot better, when I saw it in the flesh.
I still think my LEAF is a little homely, but I've gotten used to it.
