Just an unconfirmed update CallMeBoltdriver. The manager at the local Nissan outlet here told me that the first rollout of the 2019 Leaf will not include any changes to its battery, but will be followed by a 2019.5 edition round about next July with the updated battery tech that has been previously announced. Apparently like Tesla and GM, Nissan has had trouble making production targets for the 2018 Leaf, which he cited as being the reason for a Model year carryover into 2019. I don't know if Nissan was able to reach the set goal in global sales of 100k, but the Leaf has sold very well in Japan and Europe. 2018 Leaf's were basically non-existent here with less then 70 deliveries, and the price for a used one has gone up considerably. Last April, I could have got a top trim level 2015ish Leaf for about 15k CND. Today a similar car is about 19K. Nissan certainly has some catching up to do. Lets hope 2019 is the year they do it.
