Lest anyone misunderstand the specifics, the 2013 Leaf will have a more efficient
heater to avoid losing
up to 25 miles of range in cold weather. The overall range will not
be greater than it is now.
So far, we don't know how Nissan will increase that heater efficiency. Heat pump? Ethanol burner like the Volvo C30? We can only guess.
As for other details, the 6.6kWh charger has been confirmed, as well as options for darker or leather upholstery.
Meh. I'm happier than ever to be taking delivery of my Leaf one week from tomorrow.
None of the above strikes me as worth waiting any longer.
