Your climate isn't good for Leaf batteries. I wouldn't buy a 24kwh Leaf expecting it to have lots of range in 5 years. A 30kwh Leaf might work, but again it will be losing substantial capacity, relatively quickly. You may want to look into leasing a Volt or Bolt, as they have battery cooling.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.
