What happens to the LEAF traction battery in 1-2-3 months ? I've heard of Tesla accidents and the car being at salvage yards sitting unattended and ruining the (very expensive) battery. How much discharge is expected for the LEAF if not plugged in ? Is the solar panel (daytime, unobstructed) in any way able to maintain the health of the traction battery ? Is there a long-term "store it" mode in the LEAF (trickle charging while plugged in) ?
(This should probably also go in the "Battery" thread ...)
