Getting a Leaf delivered on Friday!

Tue Aug 08, 2017 7:42 am

Bought a second hand 14 plate Leaf Acentia and getting it on Friday.

Very excited but nervous! Nervous mainly because we are about to travel long distances so a baptism of fire... :D

Really like the car though and loved the test drive.

Cant wait!

Just thought I would introduce myself to the forum and then get stuck in doing some research.

Remember that slowing down is actually faster than stopping to recharge, except for QC charges.

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

Leaf "Acenta" means this car (and thus the poster) is somewhere in Europe, correct? If so, where? I'm guessing "14 plate" means probably the UK or Republic of Ireland.

In North America, the trim levels are named from base to top-level S, SV, and SL.

If you plan on taking this car on a long distance journey, you'll need an app that lets you know where the charging stations are. Here in the US and I believe Canada we use PlugShare.
