Nissan has confirmed via Twitter that the latest Leaf will be making its debut in September prior to entering dealerships by the end of this year.
The automaker is also trying to entice current Leaf owners by offering them an extension on their existing leases, on top of three months of courtesy payments.
That’s not all – it looks like they will have priority for getting on the list for the second-gen model.

It’s pretty obvious that Nissan is offering to extend the leases of current owners so that they don’t get pulled into buying the Chevy Bolt or Hyundai Ioniq Electric while waiting so long for the second-gen Leaf to arrive.
Nissan has yet to reveal much info on the upcoming Leaf, but the automaker vows that it will drop more details in the coming months.
It’s rumored that the 2018 Nissan Leaf will be offering more than 200 miles of range and it will take some design cues from the Friend ME Concept as well as the IDS Concept.
