I am reserving a 2018 Leaf but I am confused about the options. I googled this forum to try to find info but only found a very technical discussion about the amp draw of the cable itself. Thanks in advance for answering my question;
The 2018 Leaf S is $29,990
Charge package is $1,590 and includes a Quick charge port and a Portable charge cable (120/240V).
Total = $31,580
The S is not available in red.
The 2018 Leaf SV is $32,400
It includes a Quick charge port.
However, the Portable charge cable on the SV is only available with the Technology package, which is $2,200 extra.
Red color = $395
Total = $34,995.
I really like the red SV, but I don't want to pay $3,415 more for the color red. However, if I can skip the $2,200 Technology package and just buy an extension cord at my local hardware store to use as my Portable charge cable, then paying $32,795 for a red SV is acceptable.
Can I just buy an extension cord at my local hardware store (lowes) and use that as my Portable charge cable?
Does all trim levels of the car come with one Portable charge cable? The Portable charge cable option is just an extra cable? I mean, it wouldn't make sense to sell a rechargeable car with no charge cable. Maybe the Portable charge cable option is not necessary? I mean, you could just bring the one charge cable that is included with the car everywhere with you so you don't really need an extra Portable charge cable?
Many thanks and happy holidays!
