Re: Leaf as taxi/shuttle

Sun Jul 08, 2018 2:32 am

Was amazed to actually see a Lyft Leaf at the "EV watering hole” (as RonDawg calls it aka free public L2 charging near home) tonight. It was an S trim WITHOUT CHAdeMO (so it only had the 3.x kW on-board charger). Wow. I wouldn’t want to do rideshare that in that.

The driver showed up and I actually spoke to the him. He says he only does it on occasion and no more than 4 hours at a time.

He did have a Leaf before w/CHAdeMO and said he never used that inlet during his 2 year lease. On his current one, he originally hadn’t intended to do rideshare. He said he was well under his 15K miles/year on his lease so it's not big deal to him to rack up some miles before he returns his Leaf.

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