Still a bit too early to talk in detail about it. What I can say is that in my opinion it looks much better than the older generation(s) Leaf. Most people I have shown the 2018 have commented that it looks like a "normal car" or crossover. I tend to agree. As for other items...thee is ample interior space and cargo space. The tech package is worth the extra money spent. It takes a few tries to get comfortable with the E-pedal, but once you do, you quickly start to realize how wonderful it is. That is particularly true when you are at s standstill on a hill and can remove your foot from the pedal. The Pro Pilot is fun and effective as well. It did not take me long to get used to it, since I have dynamic cruise control and lane keep assist on the Prime. That said, the Nissan's Pro Pilot keeps you dead center in the lane and you get confident with it quite quickly. Overall, the tech upgrades are what led me to choose the Leaf over the Bolt, and thus far I have not been disappointed. The only exception is the Nissan Connect EV app. It sucks. It is more buggy than Toyota's Entune app, which say a lot. I also don't like the pedestrian warning sound mechanism. I wish there was an on-off switch for that.jhm614 wrote:Congrats!

None what so ever. No advantage at all.DaveinOlyWA wrote:I will be picking mine up today and like everyone else; Its not what I ordered and it would be at least another 30 days or more to get my first choice. I am now wondering what advantage was it to have ordered back the first week of September?
Congratulations and welcome to the forum!LeaferSutherland wrote:Picked up ours yesterday. Fully loaded SL.
Yep. Sucks. Always has. Nissan can't seem to get this right.LeaferSutherland wrote:App is really buggy / weird.
Good question! I think the answer is that the "30 kWh/100 miles" is from the wall and includes the losses in the on-board charger, while the range estimate is from the standard EPA range test, which is the most reasonable one in the world for EVs, IMO.LeaferSutherland wrote:I do have a question regarding range that I can’t figure out. It says on window sticker that it uses 30 KWH to go 100 miles but then on the same sticker the range is listed at 151 miles and the battery is 40 KWH. Something doesn’t add up here. What miles per KWH do they use to calculate that total range?
Yes. Or even less. It could be due to use of the heater.LeaferSutherland wrote:Without driving any different than I normally would, I’m getting about 2.7 per mile according to on board computer so does that mean my range is more like 108?
