Call me crazy, but that “Heat” button is the single most important addition in my mind. Imagine – the ability to turn on the fans without running the energy-whore of a heater.

It looks more sporty with the new wheels. If they would redesign those giant gross headlights, it could be a decent looking car.

Those big headlights are like that to direct airflow around the side mirrors, reducing a lot of wind noise and drag. Noise that’s much more apparent in a car without a gas/diesel engine. It’s a cool feature and I think it’s a shame so many folk are put off by their very different look. And unfortunately, it’s not yet legal to use cameras in place of actual mirrors – holding back a great option for improved mileage on many vehicles.

Thanks for the info about the lights. In retrospect, I would say keep the shape, but limit the lights to the front half of the hood line. Too bad we have BIG-GOV protecting us from dangerous side-view camera tech.

What’s that hump on the floor in the middle of the back seat? Or am I just seeing things?

Thats the Bose amp (or subwoofer amp).

Thats where the emergency safety disconnect is, a giant fuse you pull out.

It’ll never be a pretty car – but who cares? It’s aero that works
and that’s good enough for me. The larger wheels with new
design work much better and I like the charcoal grey.
Dark interior with leather = big improvement IMO. We can
lose the BRIGHT silver plastic accents inside ( so 2,000… ).
I never liked those Japanese mini stereos that looked like
silver plastic transformers either.

Stripper battery pack still makes me think lease…but the
LEAF is slowly maturing before our very eyes.

James

Walking through my front yard the other night as a LEAF
snuck up on me – ( where was that ped safety tone? ) and
turned the corner in front of my house. I must admit the
silence of it – the spaceship tailight treatment going by
like some sort of alien craft kind of warmed my heart.
“There just went the future!” I thought – I’M SUCH AN EV
GEEK!

Think it similar to a journal or simply a magazine connected with general interest proper to look over. Funny, witty, controversial, entertaining, useful, acerbic, thoughtful, serious, curious, unexpected comebacks are actually welcome.
