Same color (or probably close to the same) they used on the Z. My buddy had one.

For what it's worth, I just called Northbay Nissan (where I got my 2011) and was told by a salesman that Nissan has been "quiet" on the 2016, and the current rumor for when they will get their first 2016 LEAF deliveries is "January".

2016 releases will be based on how fast the 2015's leave the lot.

Cars.com shows 2100 2015's on the ground . Auto trader shows 600

Not sure why the difference , I'm thinking the 2100 is correct , and it's not dropping much each day......
So January seems about right

I doubt that.

2015 LEAF dealer inventory is already below optimal (~60 days sales) and Nissan seems to have managed the 2015 MY wind-down well enough to avoid any fire sale.

The 2015 LEAF doesn't even make the Top Battery Electric Car Deals This Month list:

http://www.carsdirect.com/deals-article ... -car-deals

As reported there, it Looks like you can lease an E Golf at a slightly lower cost, and a "2015 FIAT 500e an effective lease cost of just $225 per month, (is) $41 less than a Nissan LEAF".

Since Nissan reportedly has been manufacturing the 2016 LEAF for a few months now, if their is a delay in the introductions beyond "Fall", I think there is probably another reason for the delay, unknown to us at the moment.

Nissan dealears in my area are making deals, but they are not heavily advertised. Here is an advertisement for $130 a month with zero security deposit. https://plus.google.com/u/1/+DanielCard ... XP5cTNdDcu

My oh my, that is a bargain! Must have a boat load 2015s in SF area. For that price I might be tempted to forgo the extra range of the 2016
