I think North Hills Shopping Center should get commended for having 4 L2 stations and a DCFC now. They seem to control ICEing well too. We need more committed retail like this at the major malls. (I'm looking at you Crabtree, Triangle Town, and Southpoint).

Questions for folks in the triangle/RTP area ...
I'm investigating leases for a 2014 S with charge package and I'm being quoted about $10400 total payment for 3 year lease. Good or bad or about average lease for this part of NC ?

Thanks in advance.

I don't have an apples to apples comparison, but we just leased a 2013 SV Premium for about $260/month (if my calculations are correct your payments are $289/month?) Granted, I had a generous employer discount and an additional $1000 bonus for being an existing LEAF owner, but even so that rate for an S model sounds very high. I would think you could get that for a lot closer to $200/month.

I'm also looking to lease a Leaf in the Charlotte area. Does anyone know of a good Charlotte area dealership to lease from? Also, I'm worried about range for my commute in to work. Worst case scenario it is right at 50 miles per day (this is with taking the dogs in to be boarded for the day, picking them up, and heading home). Could I conceivably get 50 miles per day for the next 2-3 years? Most of my travel is on I-77 so it will be 65-70 mph for part of the way. Thanks for all the help!

50 miles on 77 shouldn't be an issue. You will need to have an L2 charger as I have found. I run a deficit while trickle charging & working twelves. My plant at Lake Wylie is putting in a charger and I " should " have a GE Watt station installed this week at the house. With this set up, I am good to go for any work driving 55 daily in heavy lil town traffic from IndianLand to LakeWylie and maybe a 5 mile 60 mph run or if work requires, 77/ 485 from IndianLand to Huntersville. ( Lake Norman plant already has a number of chargers available).
I always need heat & lights in morning and air in afternoon.I always drive with traffic or a lil faster ;-)
As an experiment, I found I could recoup needed charge by leaving an hour early a few times a week and jacking in at a number of available charging stations between work an house. Again this was
Just to see possibilities .
The Leaf really works out very well for me as a get a round town / work car in the Charlotte NC / RockHill SC area.
Go to plugshare.com see the possibilities ;-)

Asheville to Mount Pisgah, on the Blue Ridge Parkway

Tue Jun 24, 2014 4:08 pm

A few days ago we took our 2014 LEAF SL (which presently has about 2700 miles) from Asheville up to the Mount Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Started out at 87% SOC (per the dash instruments) in town, down to 74% ten miles later at the NC191 Parkway entrance. Maintained 40mph during the 15-mile climb to the Mount Pisgah Inn, arriving at 36%SOC. Drove back down at 35mph using lots of B mode regen, and got to the NC191 exit at 46%SOC. Ten miles later we were back in Asheville at 34%SOC.

So the climb on the Parkway took 38% of the (nearly-new) battery capacity and the descent gave back 10%. The whole 50-mile trip used 53% which is less than I expected. Looks like we'll be able to do that trip even after some capacity loss.

Hey y'all!

Proud new owner of a 2013 red Leaf SL here. Just got it yesterday. Got a great deal at a used car dealer in Durham. It had less than 10,000 miles on it, too. He has about 20 more if you know of anyone else looking. I think only one other SL, but several SVs and a few Ss. They were all leased and all in red, white, black, and silver. I'm, guessing they were fleet/motor pool vehicles. He said they came from Georgia so not NCState colors.

So far we're loving it. Got a 240V charging station on order which should come in later this week or next.
