More topics! Quick, we need more topics! At least 10 on each aspect would be great.
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

Sounds like Nissan is in the EV business for the long haul. I was telling my wife about some of the Tesla like features such as their version of Auto-pilot and Auto-park. She said "looks like Tesla has competition". I do not think so, not in the Long-Distance travel EV. Only Tesla has a Supercharger Network. Yes, for local driving, but not for trips.

I do like the new Leaf. Not sure what we will do, though. We have a Model 3 reservation but since we already bought a Model S 3-months ago we may just get the new Leaf, or wait for the larger battery Leaf. However, the 24 Kwh battery,even at 80%, provided all the range we needed, driving it 50,000 miles in 3.5 years until it was rear-ended and the insurance company totaled it.

We do LOVE our Leaf (or we did love it).

Build configurator up now: https://www.nissanusa.com/electric-cars ... configure/
ProPilot on SV trim which means it costs an extra $3K.

Oh, LeftieBiker likes to get upset at random things, like people getting excited about the new Leaf. So instead of saying, "Why are we starting a new thread? This throws my whole day off!" he instead posts passive-aggressive posts that are easily mistaken for enthusiasm.
Pulled the trigger on going EV on 10/2016 with a 2012 Leaf, and a Tesla Model 3 reservation expected to receive in June 2018.

I've lived too long. People no longer recognize good old sarcasm.
