It's true. I almost stated that, but I decided to give Nissan credit for the fact that they did ultimately warranty capacity on the MY2011/2012 LEAFs. In fact, it really wasn't until MY2015 that they had a battery that was appropriate for that capacity warranty (and that is an assumption on my part since we don't yet have enough data on the MY2015s).

Freedom pop. 500mb a month for NOTHING. if you predownload map data so your not using data for "the maps themselves"

the actual data used for navigation is quite low. you can easily not exceed 500mb a month.

now your yearly cost is "zero"

a 7" galaxy tab 3 fits nicely over top of the virtually useless nissan head unit.

I wanted "more" so I pay $30 a month ($360 a year) and have a nice Note 10" tablet.

New Nissan Leaf – longer driving range and Forward Emergency Braking as standard

...At this year's Tokyo show, Nissan will exhibit a new grade offering a single-charge driving range up to 280 km (Nissan internal measurements based on Japanese driving conditions) and advanced safety technology—standardized across all grades for the Japan market—including Forward Emergency Braking, which is designed to help drivers avoid or mitigate the impact of frontal collisions, and Lane Departure Warning. Nissan plans to announce the latest Nissan Leaf grades for Japan in November and begin sales in December...

I wonder if these will be standard upgrades on all US market 2016 LEAFs as well.

Into the headwind of continuing low gas prices, I would expect that Nissan is going to have to add some value to the 2016s, if it wants to avoid the heavy discounting it needed to use to sell the last of the 2015 MYs.

I expect more advanced autonomous features for the LEAF are only ~one or two MYs away:

I don't believe that they deserve any credit for that! It was only the lawsuit that forced them in to doing so!

For anyone wondering, this is Tesla's word for adaptive cruise.

But I agree. It's probably awesome and I've been dying to get my hands on a car that has it. So far, however, it's only been available on luxury cars at the top spec. The A3 E-Tron, for example, starts at $37,000, but it'll cost you about $38,000 to get adaptive cruise! Does Nissan currently have it on any cars? I'm assuming new Infinities have it.

Lots of cars have adoptive cruise control that aren't considered luxury. Hyundai Sonata, Subaru, Volt 2016, etc...

I know the 2016 Volt doesn't have it, and best I can figure, neither does the plug in Sonata.
