Anything from 5miles to 50miles at a time. Some days no driving whatsover, some days multiple 20mile trips.
Does anyone have this sort of experience? Is it even better suited to these assorted random trips, or does regular usage with solid charging cycles in between suit the Leaf battery better?
Does it even matter at all? Can you maintain the battery life regardless?
As a retired person I put very few miles on my EV. In nine months I have 6000 miles.
If 50 miles is one way you are pushing it. If it is round trip then it is doable. If not consider a longer range car like the Bolt.
