LeafBox is leased-car-friendly as primarily it is installed via factory plugs over acc pedal.


Great! I only have a few months, at most, left in my 2013 lease, but if I do lease a 30kwh Leaf...oh, wait minute. Dang! Please develop a version for the bigger pack!

sounds great. I'd love to see how I can help.

let me see if I understand this.

You install the leafbox on the accelerator pedal.
When you lift off the pedal you will get zero regen so you can glide in D mode?
IN ECO mode you will get more regen.. upto 24kw while off the acc pedal on slightly on the brake?

Am I correct?

and you can program the box to give you more progressive mapping of the accelerator pedal?? similar in the way the pedal behaves differently from D to ECO mode? I like the way the car drives in ECO mode to accelerate, but sometimes I would like to glide in ECO mode. in D-mode I tend to speed up too fast off the line but I'd like a more aggressive regen. ECO is a gentler increase but some times the mapping seems off as I press harder and then I have to lift off once I realize the car has caught up with where my foot position is.

This is super cool. Gliding in D sounds great and constant throttle also sounds interesting to play with. Now, a 30kwh battery adapter--that's next-level awesome! I would like to know more about that! Bigger battery more ludicrous mode? PM sent.

For added features; can you allow left-foot braking? Specifically, will you allow the motor to deliver power to the front tires while the brakes are applied? Both while stopped (for faster start) and while moving (for rally-style awesome driving). Keep up the good work!

Im interested to test your product. I have a 2013 Leaf Tekna with 120k km and 85% SOH.

Im wondering if it's possible to program leafbox to do one pedal driving on low speeds?

This is a basic installation. Extended D-mode needs one additional clamp-on cable.

neat, so basically you just hijack the gas pedal signal?
