Had a Bolter who could only get like 170ish miles in OR which gives you an idea of how much of an impact rain (not so much cold) and climate controls can be.

On another note; My LEAF would be as low as 90 miles on crappy days which means standing water and heavy rain but easily doing 115 and not counting today, we have not had a single day of decent weather. I expect 125 will not be a challenge come Summer.

What does this mean? Your new 150 mile EV could easily not make 100 miles in Winter.


I would be interested to know exactly how that Bolt owner was driving and using their car to only be getting 170 miles. I've been following the Bolt and numerous owners via the net (Youtube, discussion boards, etc.) and everyone seems to consistently be getting the 250+ and there are some people who have reported slightly over 300 miles with very conservative driving and heavy regen use.


well, I asked him several times but didn't get a response but the road he was driving is has general average of 50-55 mph with 5-35 mph stretches thru towns. Lots of dips, twisties, etc. I think his biggest issue was simply driving against the prevailing wind. I asked how his performance was on his return trip (guessing it was better barring the unlikely event the prevailing winds changed)

Hmm, I guess that would make sense. I'm not really sure where the people live that I have been following, but most of their videos involve city and urban driving and what not. There is one guy who took his Bolt into some of Utah's national parks, but I don't recall him reporting on his overall battery use (part of the trip was to check on the supposed availability of chargers inside the parks).

Those headlights are stunning looking. I hope they perform. The halogen headlights on my Leaf are terrible. I live in a rural area and the headlights are very ineffective. Highbeam is mostly useless.

I hope it's a true four lamp Led setup at least 42watts each, that would be great for my drive.

This image makes me think the camouflaged cars we have been seeing are mules - and the new Leaf will be a total redesign.

If Nissan follows past trim-level features, the High/Low LED headlights will be standard on the SL, optional on the SV, and not available on the budget S model.

My 2015 SV, LEDs were not optional. I would prefer cloth interior with led headlights though. Perhaps that's a Canadian market difference.

Go back and look at the spy shots. These headlights look very similar to me.
