Nissan, in other words, is way ahead of GM in the EV game. Not to mention Bolt's annoying seats and over-tightened suspension, neither of which will, guaranteed, see any improvement.
Either way, you'll get to drive and compare 2 vehicles and pick the one that fits your fancy and your needs.
Anything could happen, but it appears that much like the Prius Prime, the G2 Leaf is a minor improvement, not an attempt at a world beater.
Supposedly, the G2 Leaf is getting about 147hp which will give it less performance than the 120kW Volt EREVs, but more than the Prius Prime.
But the Bolt EV will mostly likely remain at the next level up in performance unless they derate it.
Predictions of 40 kWh G2 Leaf batteries are impressive only when compared to EVs from the past. Just enough range to still be difficult for long trips.
What is probably going to happen is you will spend less, drive slower, drive less distance, just like in 2017.
Just as hysterical... err... historical reference, the 2017 Leaf has not caught up with the 2011 Volt, and it looks like 2018 for Nissan will change nothing. Slower than any EV GM has made this decade.
