    150 miles isn’t a lot for an EV these days.

    what about BATTERY MANAGEMENT the leaf has none that why its so BAD in cold and hot weather !

    I'll be honest the leaf was at the bottom of the list for me last year but in my province (state) the ev rebate was gonna get taken away ($14,000 CAD) and no other car manufacturer could deliver an ev to me before the rebate end date but Nissan could.

    Im so far overall very happy with the leaf and no battery issues so far but I really wish the infotainment system was better because it makes the leaf feel low tech.

    Goes out to buy a pack of smokes, takes the EV to heal any feeling of guilt…

    Where do they make these Leaf cars for the North American market?

    Thanks for your review.  I have had a 2014 Leaf for over 2 years now with the smallish 24kw  battery pack and still wake up to a typical 72 mile range (new I think was 86) —  so, battery degradation is minimal, and, replacement battery packs are comparable in cost to many repairs on an ICE vehicle.   I can do all my errands for most days under 30 miles.  I charge w a "Juice Box" in my garage and never stand in inclimate weather to fuel — It has never been in a shop for anything  and is still "like new."  At least for most peeps who have access to overnight charging — a second car should be electric — they are SUPERIOR to ICE vehicles in so many ways.

    After driving my 2014 Leaf for over 2 years in both hot and cold weather in Oklahoma, I see no reason for a liquid cooled battery management system — I like the simplicity and performance of what I have — don't need the extra complications of a pump, fluid, belts, gaskets, etc that can go wrong.  When driving the Leaf in the same manner as one would drive an ICE vehicle, the Leaf passive battery management system is entirely satisfactory.

    Wait- it’s range was cut in HALF on cold days??

    This car loses 70% of its value after 5 years. Pure crap.

    Range is the biggest problem for me. Once they get up to 600+ mile range per charge we'll see many people switching from ICE

    I think battery degradation is a function of where you live. Michigan rarely gets hot so the Leaf battery probably has good life. If you live in the south, not so much.

    I bought an ex-lease 2018 SV (240km range) model, and in six months, haven't had even 1 issue. I live just outside Vancouver BC, Canada, so it's not extremely cold, but still gets quite cold. I used the 110V adapter to charge at home for the first 2 months and judging by the rate, would take 32 hours to charge from zero. I did try a stage 3 charger twice, and it charged from 25% to 100% in 1 hour. After 2 months we had a home stage 2 charger installed. ($1100 CAN. for the charger, with a $495 rebate from BC Hydro … the wiring and labour is about $300) … now It charges from zero% to 100% in less than 6 hours, so you can run it down during the day, and it's 100% in the morning… and I have seen zero battery life loss as yet. (also, the warranty for this battery is 8 years.)

    So far the charging at home has cost me $65 CAN. …
    675 kWh and 4100 Km .. or 0.0158¢ per Km …. (0.072¢ per mile)
    My SUV was costing me about 15¢ per Km … that's almost 100 times the savings!
    The change to an EV is a no brainer … and the planet is better for it!

    Lastly, everything that was said on the video is absolutely true for ours … except for 1 thing. The battery in mine in the cold (sub zero) loses about 12%, (not 50% like in the video) and much of that loss is due primarily to the heater … the only discernible battery drop in these is due to heat and air conditioning … nothing else seems to affect the battery loss (IE: radio, lights etc.) … these are negligible.
    My brother has the Tesla Model 3, and I much prefer the Leaf to his. It's ease of operation and simplicity makes driving a breeze … I also feel it's more user friendly.
    It's a fantastic vehicle!

    You need to paint the walls in your garage. Otherwise the drtwall will deteriorate

    A full charge range of as low as 72 miles is all I need to hear
