As reported over @ Inside Ev’s and other blogs, there are some cool new features announced in Japan for the leaf. Leather seats, new trim, remote open of charge port, etc. I think one of the best is now is it appears that range is reported in State of Charge Percentage like EV folks have been asking for since the beginning. This gives you a much more accurate idea for the driver as to how much range they have left. We are all used to doing this with our laptops and other devices. Let’s hope this will be part of the new US and other countries features as well.
