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.
So all these leafs in so cal will be pretty worthless in a few years? I see tons of 13s floating around that have 11 or 12 bars that spent their entire lives in Southern California. How many bars do you think a 13+ Leaf will have after five years in a hot climate since many are almost four years old and have 11/12?
