There have been plenty of rumors about the 2016 LEAF and its capabilities, such as a 25% bigger battery. Nissan however have made no announcements about the 2016 LEAF, no release date, no pricing.
I spotted a LEAF today that I did a double take on. The paint looked brown rather than black in the morning sunlight. Then I realized it really was brown not black. There is no brown available for 2015 LEAF’s at Nissans website. This is new I thought. Leaked information at Autobytel regarding the 2016 LEAF colors includes a new brown finish called “Forged Bronze”.
The LEAF I saw was parked at Nissan HQ in Franklin TN and had Manufacturer tags on it. The Tires are not new looking so the car has been on the road for a while. There is little to distinguish this 2016 car from any other LEAF. The Michelin tires and Navigation console means it is probably an SL or SV trim. The interior was dark cloth, not leather.
So this is evidence the rumors are true regarding a new LEAF model. We will have to wait until the official Nissan announcement(s) as to what we will get and at what price.
It could just be a paint trial with no other differences!
