Re: Are there 2022 leafs for sale in the US?

I wonder if they are selling quickly or Nissan just can't make them.

Both, last I talked to a Nissan HQ person, a lot of dealers are back-ordered to August of this year. New vehicles arrive on the lots every week, but they are already sold and each dealership gets maybe 5 or 6 per week (that order them custom for the customer), so production for it is maxed in Smyrna.

The only thing being made is Plus versions of every trim level, no one is ordering a 2022 without it. I thought that tidbit was interesting. Anything else you find is old inventory being passed around at higher and higher cost among a lot of dealerships. This is in TN anyway, not sure what happens outside of the state, country, etc. Anyone that orders a Leaf now from a dealership is actually going to get a 2023 model instead of a 2022 model just because of that backlog. If anyone knows someone on this forum or friend that actually works in the Smyrna Plant, they may have some better info than the execs I always interact with at HQ.

Re: Are there 2022 leafs for sale in the US?

Just saw the 2023 model announcements. Seems like they will be simplifying the line and making only 2 trims. S (40 kWh) and SV+ (62 kWh). Not much changing other than some cosmetics.

Edit : sharing the link in case some may have missed this news

That seems to make sense. The only thing the SL every got you was Leather seats and maybe all the "packages" that you could put on the others for a separate charge. Since the S trim will be without the heat pump, that should give it a little bump to the range and coupled with the Federal rebate, makes it a good starter EV with enough range for any city living person to find useful. The SV+ will be the longest range version of the Leaf and I guess you can just throw all the "packages" in you want to give it Leather seats or Sonar Parking, etc. That should help to close the feature and price gap at least. Right now SL trims command a premium on the Used Leaf prices because of the "it's got everything" idea.

The pictures were nice, looks exactly like the inside of mine. Everything looks nice when brand new I suppose. :lol:
