Living in a climate season, you may experience range drops by ~30% during the cold months. Good pick on the EVSE as well as we have the same one and enjoy the built in delay timer feature. Research the Leafspy app for detailed metrics on your battery.
So, the car was in GA for the first 2 years, and then was owned for about a year by one of the sales managers at Germain Nissan where I purchased it. I'm in Bexley (Columbus) Ohio, and my commute is 7 miles round trip. I also have access to an L2 charger at work, so I can fill up there as needed during the week, and fill up at home on the weekends.
With my last car, I was averaging about 6000mi a year, and we did a lot more running around for errands in my car than my wife's. Now if we do a trip to Cincinnati or somewhere else, we'll take her ICE Focus.
I'll have to check out that app, sounds like it can give good info. The dealer agreed to repaint the scuffed up bumper, and also split the cost of the TCU upgrade so that only cost me 100 bucks. Inside, the car looks new. It was nicely detailed. I love the leather, and I was able to use the heated steering wheel and seat on a chilly day.
