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

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.
