Nissan confirms unchanged pricing for 2019

Nissan has confirmed that the next model year Leaf, will have the same pricing structure as the current model for North America. The entry level will still retail for $29,990, whereas the SV and SL start at $32,490 and $36,200. It does look like they will be adding some new tech, including a rear door alert and more standard safety equipment. It has also been confirmed that the long range model is currently in development.

Isn't rear door alert just a reminder to check your back seats? Wouldn't really say that's much of a change in tech, as its just a notification that pops up on your dash. Prices are probably staying the same because the new long range model will sit at the top end once it releases.

IMO increasing price even by a bit can go a long way. Better to keep incremental increase in price than to keep it flatline randomly one year.

As more features come to the Leaf they'll wish a price increase was done here.

Would love to see a roadmap on when Nissan is planning on updating the ProPilot system. I know they have said that they are working towards it being compatible with inner-city driving and intersections by 2020.

we will be seeing a consistent roll out of driver assistive systems in ProPilot. Its inevitable and part of the brands self-driving future and even with regular models for the next few years.

This is all that Nissan has really shared with us so far. I think this gradual approach is the right way for any automaker to go about moving towards fully autonomous systems.

Right now a big issue for self-driving cars are how they navigate through situations that can't always be predictable like roads with fading paint, unpredictable pedestrian behavior, navigating through challenging weather, etc. Ultimately once enough cars on the road are talking, communicating, etc. ... i'll have more confidence in these systems.

This technology is really still in its infancy, even on vehicles from Tesla. We've seen just how many issues arise in areas that are under construction, where clear indicators are visible for the car to read. It's still going to be quite a few years before these systems are fully adaptive to unforeseen circumstances.

I think its going to be nearly impossible to offer it on a large scale until we have proper vehicle to vehicle communication. That's not going to happen until we also make the transition to 5G and even then there are going to have to be safeguards in place when connections are lost.

Self driving cars are a lot further away from reality than automakers are leading us to believe. The last thing we want is for these systems to be released without proper due diligence. Waymo seems to be at the forefront of this tech, and I feel like they are a good bit ahead of other brands.
