Nissan Leaf Specifications (Generation 1 - ZE0/AZE0)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

It's been ages I've been back on the forum but I did thoroughly search the whole forum before posting this :)

I am currently looking for a webpage which I had come across in late 2018, where almost all details of the generation 1 Nissan Leaf was listed comprehensively, including all the differences between each trim levels for JDM (S, X, G) and UKDM (Visia, Acenta, Tekna) along with pictures of different options, even photos of the different standard alloy wheels, navigation units, climate control dials, interior colours and materials which were offered etc. Unfortunately, since it was more than 6 months ago, my search/browser history also does not have details going back that far and like an idiot I could not bookmark it also.

 

In my current searches, I was able to locate some sites with good info but not as detailed as the earlier one, which really helped in getting to know the exact model and trim of cars on sale. If any of you have seen, know which site I'm referring to or come across it, appreciate if you can share it!

I'm looking to sell/exchange my '18 WagonR for a Tekna/G grade Leaf due to a change in finances and not needing more than 50km max of range per day anymore since I'm back in my hometown.

I'd prefer a Tekna since it's all in English though heavier and got slightly less range, but there are apparently around 20x more G Grades in LK than UKDM cars.

You realise degrading batteries and poor replacement options make the car a dead end in terms of future prospects right? Also you range drops as the battery ages not as the kms you run in, 

The whole EV outburst was not backed enough by any investor thereby died out, no Parts, no after sales services and most of all dire shortage for fast chargers. 

Selling the wagon r for a leaf would not be a wise option on the long run, I learnt this the hard way, went EV ninja once upon a time. 

There are cars for 9 laks atm which came in at 2.6 to 3.1 mil in 2015, with only 2 to 3 bars left running about 50km without ac. 

Whatever you save using the leaf financially you will lose in depreciation, as for being eco friendly, you ll be consuming electricity mostly supplied by burning coal.

The fist generation Leafs have a lawsuit going against Nissan in Texas and other Warm states, which had similar battery issues like in SL. Better give your money to charity if you have too much of it. as for the new generation, it is too early to say how it will cope in SL climate. Better wait until the Official dealer brings it down if ever..On the other hand i wonder why succesfull EVs like Renault Zoe, VW eGolf, and BMW-I3 failed to penetrate, too costly?

Thanks for the informative reply tiv! I saw you'd done a nice writeup sometime back on the Leaf, didn't realize you'd given that away. Totally understand your concerns about the battery, I started looking for replacements before even getting the car but apparently very few come in and that too sells out quickly? Some sellers have told me about to replacing cells, not sure about their expertise in doing so and authenticity/longevity of the cells they're offering though.

As for the other parts, I actually found more genuine reconditioned spare parts available for the Leaf than the MH55S! The market for the WagonR was very bad last year, now it's flooded with fake parts branded Japan made in Taiwan or somewhere. Guess age difference of the models also play a role since older Leaf's are plentiful while the new model WagonR came out only in '17. Anyway, I had 5 FZ/FX with me of which 4 were for hiring so needed many parts, 2 got condemned within few months and 5th one, last one remaining is my private vehicle which needs to be sold/traded off since I've sunk 1.6M+ into the car already and there's 70K a month which I hope to cut down to less than half that. Since it's going OT, I'll send you a PM if you don't mind to discuss more on any other alternate non-Indian models I can look at :)

It's a problem with Sri Lankan laws not allowing brand new imports by anyone except the only registered "dealer" which is also just another private company, most of the time having nothing to do with the parent company. That also restricted to one company per brand. I'm not saying vehicle sale/yard model is any good, but for example if we had two or more dealers for Renault, Volvo, Mazda etc. there'd be more competition and better service overall for customers.

 

As for better EVs with liquid cooled battery packs, you can thank our government for the tax structure that penalizes cars with higher kW rated motors instead of going for tax brackets under efficiency in terms of km/kW. All the better EVs have 100 kW+ motors, even on the base models now because other countries understand that efficiency of motors is not based on a diminutive motor size, unlike small cc fuel engines generally being more efficient. Since no dealer is apparently bringing down "Brand New" EVs, reconditioned cars should now start at minimum tax of 40,000 LKR / kW. Though I'm not sure how the ZE1 Leaf is available for 5.5M since it's got a 110 kW motor and only the tax should be 4.4M
