I have owned a Nissan Leaf for 5 years… upgrading to a Tesla now.

Damn shame Nissan didn’t follow up on the huge leap ex-CEO Ghosn started. Leaf was a great EV, just doesn’t keep up any more.. not even with bidirectional ChaDeMo.

been rocking my leaf for 8 years now, and i still love it. the battery isn't what it once was, and will be expensive to replace but i've done nothing but service the tires and add wiper fluid. it has paid for itself.

Yeah it was a great EV, just isn’t keeping up with the times.

What kind of range do you get now?

Our 40kWh new was supposed to get up to 250km… not sure we really could get that, but now 5 years and 90,000km later we get like 130km. It’s pretty sad.

And the DC “fast” charging is anything but fast.
