Thanks. I think you misunderstood my question.
We want to make sure your have realistic expectations of Leaf range on a single charge and for those driving conditions. Driving at highway speeds or fast == high power consumption. Running the heater == higher power consumption.
If you don't have a place to charge at home or work or where you're regularly stopped for hours normally, I wouldn't recommend a Leaf, unless you drive very few miles/day.
EPA range rating is 107 miles on a '17, '16 SV and SL and "S 30" Leaf on a new battery. It's 84 miles on a 24 kWh (2013 to 2015, 2016 S (non-"S 30")).
