Congrats on your Leaf and welcome to the community. Are you new to EV's or have you upgraded from an older model?

Glad to have another owner on the forum.

I've seen in a lot of reviews references to the interior looking and feeling cheap, have you noticed that in your Leaf SV??
Nissan has a reputation on falling behind on interiors so i'm a bit concerned.

Congrats and welcome to the forum. Did your dealer make any mention of the long range model that's currently in development?

Howdy,
I own a 2018 SL.
Yes, the interior is almost all hard plastic and cheap. Odd interior design too. No hand grab handle above the drivers door even though the headliner has a recess for it.No coat hanger hooks on any of the hand grips over the doors. Really oddly shaped center arm rest in the front seats. Itís tiny and shaped like a bicycle seat cut in half lengthwise. No center arm rest in rear seats. No CD player even with the upgraded Bose stereo. No remote rear hatch release.

And the cheap hits donít stop. Disappointing for a $38,000 car. Our 2014 Prius V came with a far nicer and useful interior. Of course, it doesnít have 2018 Pro-Assist features.

Still, the car is fun to drive.

Congrats on getting a Leaf. I used to like the Prius til they came out with an ugly design, ever since I have been turned off from it.
However, I have to admit, it was a smart move from Toyota to stand out in a flooded segment.
