It's true though, the two tone paint option is one of the most popular things about the new Leaf. The first things my brother and father said was the nice two tone white and black paint job. I'm sure others love it as well.

I noticed it as well, and contacted the dealership where I put my deposit. They said it seems no longer available in Canada. Somewhat poor taste considering all their auto shows and ads on the website are with the two tone colour (and arguably the best looking on this car). Still being offered in the US, Japan and Europe. My guess is the overwhelming orders for this paint choice and Nissan deciding to only offer in the US in North America.

To me it's a deal breaker. But probably most will accept it and choose either the full white or black.

That's a shame. The deal breaker for me was the lack of TMS and range but this is the icing on the cake.

Anywhere you go it's a 3-8 month wait for an EV, Ioniq Electric included.

Production officially started yesterday:

Nissan Press Release

I asked my dealership for an update and also asked about the two tone color. Hopefully I hear a response today and that all existing orders will go through.

Keep in mind the dealerships didn't order anything, as no ordering yet available. They just took our reservations and gave the factory a number. If the paint code is missing when it comes to actual ordering time, then they won't be able to. They may be all allocated to US customers, but just a wild guess at this point in time. Truth is, it disappeared from Canada but remains on the US website.

The EV discovery centre in North York. I think that's what it's called. You can also drive other EVs there as well except for Tesla's.
Up votes, down votes, they're all votes for me! I thank you!

That was a great video review. Really solidified my choice to stick with the Leaf over getting a Bolt. The fit and finish and features are just so much better here than in the Chevy.

I did hear back from my dealer and they are now saying the first round of Leafs will be coming in late February. Hopefully this is not the case and we still see them in January. No word yet on the two tone color option.

If the 60 kWh came with TMS, I'll be okay without AWD but then Nissan is coming up with a sedan and SUV BEV.

I think the 220 mile Leaf might just be my Tesla M3 reservation killer.

Wail await reviews from the RFD community but it's definitely much improved over the frog predecessor.
