In addition to showing a base price of $29,990 for the Leaf S, it also confirms the battery capacity as 40-kWh. At 40-kWh, the Leaf's pack is coming in under both Model S and Bolt EV, but above today's Leaf.
(but under the 50kWh battery of the lowest Tesla Model 3...which goes into production NEXT Year)

The documents also show the new Leaf will have 147 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, a huge jump from today's car, which has 107 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque...
.
And still ugly/not as attractive as the 3.

Not knowing their EVs, I expect they were intending on comparing the 220 EV mile $35k Model 3 with the 238 EV mile $37k Bolt and the 120 EV mile Leaf. Not the Model S.

2018 BMW X4 revealed without camouflage – UPDATE
CarAdvice.com.AU
- Mike Stevens - Today

UPDATE: New shots from this photo set have arrived in our inbox. See article and gallery for more.

The new-generation 2018 BMW X4 has been spied without a shred of camouflage this week, caught in transit to destinations unknown – although a Frankfurt motor show stand next month is likely to be on the timetable.

These images, posted to enthusiast community xbimmers by user ‘Palbay’ (facebook page), offer the first clear look at the latest iteration of the new BMW X3 SUV’s coupe-inspired companion.

Like the still relatively new first-generation X4 – introduced in 2014 – and the larger X6, the new 2018 X4 will wear a face largely identical to its more practical stablemate, while featuring a long tapered roofline and a short rear deck.

The new X4’s tail lamps show a more slender design than before, with this high-spec M40d example already drawing a few comparisons on xbimmer.com to the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe – the X4’s direct rival in the Mercedes camp.

For more on the new BMW X4, see our coverage at the links before – including what looks to be the first glimpse of a top-shelf X4 M flagship model.

Although not yet confirmed, we expect to see the new X4 in Frankfurt next month.

Mini Electric Concept revealed:
Cooper EV coming in 2019
CarAdvice.com.AU
- James Wong - Today

The Mini Electric Concept has been unveiled ahead of its debut at the Frankfurt motor show next month, previewing the all-electric production model due in 2019.

Finished in an eye-catching matte-silver paintwork with contrasting yellow accents – which harks back to the original Mini E of 2008 – the Mini Electric Concept is still unmistakably recognisable as a Mini, though is distinguished from its more conventionally-powered brethren thanks to its closed grille and full-LED headlight treatments, 19-inch wheels with fiberglass inserts, and the company’s plug-shaped ‘E’ badge throughout the exterior...

...At the rear, the flat tailgate differs from the current production models that incorporate three-dimensional badges and licence plate holders. The rear of the Mini Electric Concept also sees new LED tail-lights that each form half of the UK’s Union Jack as part of their dot matrix...

...Stay tuned to CarAdvice for our coverage of the 2017 Frankfurt motor show for more details.

Very nicely done.
Lexus needs to stop what they are doing, look at this, and take a crash course in taste before proceeding.

This would be a 2019, not a 2018, which are already on lots (I test drove one last week).

They had a 2017 X4 M40i (or whatever they call it) demo with 4K miles on it in a color I loved that I might've gotten if they would have given a good deal. He'd only give me 5K off sticker for it.
