Hi guys and girls,
Just bought myself a new Leaf Acenta today from WestWay Nissan in Southampton. Decided to upgrade from my Gen1 (62 plate). I have to wait until mid-December for delivery though.
I know my way around the Leaf, but can anybody tell me of any unobvious changes. I know about the parking brake, boot space, heat pump (can anyone estimate what the real-world mileage saving?) and B-mode. Is there anything else I should know about?

Thanks in advance and sorry if this topic has been repeated .

James

Software is slightly different in places. The charging timer screens are now a lot easier IMO.

Better headlights... the Mk1 ones were not good.

Charging port flap can be opened using the key fob. It has a light so no more fumbling around in the dark trying to plug in. The AC socket now has a lock to prevent people unplugging the charge while charging.

There is a readout of SOC% now which is very useful instead of having to rely only on the 12 bars.

Can't think of anything else at the moment :)

How do I identify a gen1 from a gen2
From the outside?
Inside?
Apparently the charge port is different but people don't tend to photo these.

I believe 2012 is gen1 and 2014 is gen2
2013 can be both?
