Is there a heating system (maybe incorporated with the fan, or as heating cables) which heat the batteries, or is this not necessary?
Yes, Nissan is coming up with a "cold weather spec" Leaf. It will have battery heating. Check the "Battery design" thread.
I found it in the "Later in 2011 : Leaf will come in Cold Weather Spec"-thread! Thank you!
The bad news part of it is that I'll have to wait for next year before I can buy a Leaf, as the ones sold in the Netherland and Portugal will not have the cold weather spec!
I think I'll have to do unmentionable things to the local Nissan dealer to make them import the car quickly!
