I love the heater ...

Thu Dec 06, 2018 9:17 am

I have to say, after using our 2015 leaf SV for one month in cold weather (20s/low 30s) I am super impressed with the heater. In fact, my wife and I feel the Leaf heater warms the car much faster than any other car we've owned. What's odd, is unlike an ICE heater that blows hard, this one seems to be a early noticeable breeze t best. But still, it works. And it's not just the seat heaters, we've had that feature on our cars for a long time. Not sure if performance will drop as temps reach 0° and bellow, but so far, I've been driving toasty warm. I think ICE should adopt the Leaf heating system.

??? Are you saying the blower isn't working correctly, or that you only get hot air at low blower speeds?

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

The Toyota Prius Prime w/ICE uses a heat pump for the heater, not sure how many other vehicles with an ICE uses a heat pump.......probably not very many.
