Thanks to the admins for adding this. I'm three days in to being a LEAF owner and I gotta say this whole site has been a godsend. I'm loving my LEAF!

Hi,

Nice to hear of some LEAFs selling in Montreal. I believe they are selling two or three a week here in Ottawa (at least recently) but I'm sure Montreal will eventually pass us. You might have a hard time passing Vancouver though.

Are you loving it? I'm still trying to find excuses to drive somewhere because it's so much fun! :D

Same here ! :P

My dealer sold 3 last week.

People in Quebec are quite "pro" green cars, and electric fees are low ...

Fellows from Aerovironnement told me the were overwhelmed by the number of EVSE ordered in only 3 months !!!

I am also on the South Shore of Montreal.
I got mine at the end of October.
I just past the 2,000 Km, no problem at all.
We had a few days below -10 C, but not enough to really test it in the cold.

If there is enough people in Quebec in this forum, shall we have a French section?

Thanks,

Hey guys,

Also from Montreal here.
Only got 1,000 km on the odo on mine, since I got my LEAF on Oct. 25... I work too close from home!
I don't even have a 240v outlet yet; I have the modified EVSE from EVSEupgrade.com, which allow both 120/240v charging, but I've been using 120v exclusively.

I started to keep track of the mileage & kWh I use daily since almost 2 weeks:

Mileage since I keep track: 174km
Car says I used 45kWh: 174km / 3.9km/kWh, per the car dash.
The Kill-A-Watt I have plugged between my EVSE and the outlet says I used 75kWh to charge.
75kWh * 0.0751 cents/kWh (Hydro-Quebec) = $5.60 = 3.23 cents/km

For anyone speaking French, La Presse interviewed me some weeks ago, and published an article on Dec. 7:

Robin, did you take extended warranty (5 yrs or 7 yrs) or only the basic 3 yrs ?

ve2maa,

Basic warranty only. Having 5y/100Km on powertrain and EV system and 8y/160Km on battery is pretty good. Looking at this forum with people that have done more than 20,000 miles without problem is pretty good. Some tire and break issues but not likely for everyone.

I am located in Longueuil and drive downtown Montreal daily for round trip distance of 36 Km. A few time to P.E.T. Airport for 80 Km total. Remaining is local travelling on the south shore. I will most likely do 15,000 Km per year with the LEAF (we named her Electra).

What about you?
