In this picture you see the residual value of 2014 Nissan LEAF 5dr HB S, estimated by Cars.com. But there are issues related to battery replacement and battery life, which I don't know if are included while calculating the 2014 LEAF's residual value. I asked the question to some Nissan LEAF owners and here is what they commented.
Earlier today we published one EV owner's opinion refuting this line of thought, saying comparing the LEAF to a battery-powered Versa is not giving the LEAF designers much credit. In this opinion piece, an EV owner and enthusiast Ivan Jue makes a brief comparison between Nissan LEAF and Versa as well as Chevy Volt and Cruze, writing one cannot judge the book by its cover. Here is what Jue says.
The story in question reasoned that the Nissan LEAF is simply a modified Versa because Versa is the cheapest new car on the market, at just above $12,000 and the LEAF is nearly three times the cost of that. Marc Fontana from SF Area Nissan LEAF Owners group completely disagrees and says we should not be mislead by the similar design of Nissan LEAF and Nissan Versa.
To encourage accessory companies and aftermarket innovation for the 2016 Titan XD, Nissan scheduled a "measuring day" at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturer's Association garage in Los Angeles.
The instantaneous mi/kWh metric is utterly useless. A 5 second rolling average would be far better. Also, a scale of 0-8 trivializes the major difference between 4 and 5 mi/kWh.
The "To 100% Charge" is usually wildly off. 6kW and 3.3kW recharge times would be far more useful. Considering Nissan says the 120V is "emergency charging," it makes no sense to show 240V and 120V times.
In a debate, under our discussion at the Tesla Model S Owners Club the sentiment is that the electric car manufacturers need to bring the price down before they extend the range. One commenter says he knows "plenty of people who won't buy any EV because they are all just too expensive. Over the past 4 years the specs of the EVs have gotten better but their price has not come down significantly, especially the Nissan LEAF. People would really rather buy a 50 mile range $15,000 car than a 100 mile range $30,000 car."

Here is Bret Harris in his own words, commenting about Nissan Leaf range issues and what a Nissan dealer told him in silicon Valley area.
I have to agree that having 130 or 150 mile range would open up the market and utility of the LEAF greatly. I am on my second LEAF.
Tonatiuh Medina comments below, from San Francisco.
The 200 mile range would be great, but to continue to be the leader in the EV space, time-to-market is crucial. The Leaf is going onto its 5th year with literally no major changes. I do agree that a 120 real-miles today for a similar price point would be a killer deal.
