Right now i'm researching and want to make the best informed decision I can. If the leaf can't do what I ask then I understand that completely. Your not going to hurt my feelings to flat out tell me no this won't work for you.
If a 2016 s with the 30kwh is the only leaf that can do what I need then that is the answer I need.
Driving conditions here
12 miles on 2 lane at 55mph rolling hills to freeway
10 miles on freeway at 70mph
10 miles on side roads from up to 55mph
My commute is very similar to yours with the exception that my return trip has a 750 ft elevation gain.
Being unsure about work charging availability was what initially drove me to chose the Volt. As time went on, I found that I could charge on 120V and later led an effort to get some L2 240V installed at work. You should be able to fully recover your loss during an 8 hour day at 120V, I found it usually took about 6 hours.
You'll find the Leaf (or any EV) has very predictable usage depending on temperature and weather (slushy snow and rain reduce range). You might find you need a backup plan when temps get too low. I haven't had my 2013 Leaf long, but have found that I have plenty of range to make it both ways when temps are over 50 and dry, and one way down to at least zero (we don't get much lower here). I recognize that it may not be possible to make the commute when the car loses a few bars at lower temps, and will then make it a kids car.
One thing I didn't think about when buying was with 110/120V charging I was unable to make a 25 mile midday offsite lunch trip because I might not recharge quick enough.
If you have another option you can use sporadically in very low temps, I wouldn't have any concern at all with recommending the Leaf.
