2015 Nissan Leaf Gets Minor Updates
June 30th, 2014 by Christopher DeMorro
Though the Nissan Leaf may not be a big seller in Canada, for the second year in a row our neighbor to the north has unveiled the new model year specs for Nissans little electric car. The changes for the 2015 Nissan Leaf are mostly minor, and includes new standard features and a new color.
For 2015, Leaf buyers will have a new color option called Morningsky Blue, which replaces the popular Blue Ocean color on the palette. Also new for 2015, the base model Leaf S will get standard cruise control, while upper-trim SV and SL models will get EV-IT updates that includes a hands-free texting system and Voice Destination Entry for the navigation system.
That’s about all the changes 2015 brings for the Nissan Leaf, which sadly means no increased range of battery pack options. Look like that’ll have to wait for the 2016 makeover, which is also said to make the Leaf look more mainstream in response to criticisms on its EV-centric styling.
Another year, another Nissan Leaf. There is, however, a slight chance the Leaf might get another price cut, as in Japan the electric vehicle saw its price slashed another $2,500.
Don’t hold your breathe, but it could be a nice surprise.
