QC package means you can use L3 charging (CHADEMO connector) to charge your Leaf from low battery to 80% in about 30 mins.

Also, it means the Leaf has a built-in L2 charging rate of 6.3kW, which is twice as fast as a regular S model on L2 chargers (240V x 27.5A)

Another question thanks for bearing with me. When you say test drive it and use 25% of the charge, how do I ensure I'm draining my 25%?

To switch views on the center console LCD screen, you use the button group shown at the top of this photo:

Top left one cycles through the views, and you want to press that until you see the %charge view.

You can also cycle through, using that same button, until you reach the trip counter screen. Press and hold the bottom left button in that group to reset the trip counter.

The one on the left is the QC CHADEMO port, but that looks like a blank plate. Is that for the same "urgent" car you mentioned before? Weird, as the original sales sticker shows it has the QC package but, based on that photo, it looks like it doesn't.

Check the VIN on the door sticker I mentioned, I'd be very surprised if the original sales sticker had the wrong info RE QC package. Perhaps the salesperson is showing you the wrong car? VIN you mentioned was 1N4AZ0CPXDC418806
