    New owner - 2014 LEAF SL - New to EV's

    I got my Leaf in June, 2020 and had to put tires on it right away. Chose Nokian all-weather WR4-G. I'm not a hyper-miler nor a lead foot - during the 1st summer or first 4k miles got 5.4 mi/kWh with less during winter. After four years and 20k miles they were worn down enough to replace, had...

    100 kW Charging

    In my 2017 Leaf I once tried to use a 150 kW Chademo Charge Point charger because the two 50 kW Chademo units were occupied. It would turn on after the exchange for about 2 seconds, so wasn't allowed by the car to possibly charge that fast.

    Now I'm getting nervous...

    I really love my 2017 Leaf S (30 kWh). It has been 100% reliable, meets my retired needs perfectly, and feels good to drive it for all the reasons. Maybe I just got lucky? I did a lot of research about EVs and then models. Once I figured the Leaf was the right car to meet my needs, I looked...

    A thread for people happy with their Leaf

    I do love my LEAF ! Over the decades I kept hoping some car manufacturer would get the EV job done. Then Obama worked with Think (from Norway) and I was happy -- I maybe could afford a used one some day. But that went down the drain. Then the Leaf began in 2011 and a friend bought a 2012. So in...

    keeping the car warm all night

    Yes, at least until I can see it does not. It was only down to Zero F last might and we are most of the way thru January. Maybe in February we will have a couple of seriously cold nights ! ? ! And when I say battery heater I mean the pad in the traction battery pack. Now I wonder if the...

    keeping the car warm all night

    I am now seriously going to test the battery when it goes to minus 20 F. I will not put my heater in place and note whether the pack looses any miles overnight. JohnP.

    keeping the car warm all night

    KnightMB, You have been using the term "Cold Weather Package" and because my original sticker doesn't show that, I have been referring to it as the "Battery Heater". You are correct that if my car was so equipped the sticker would say "CWP". But I never dreamed Nissan would manufacture a Leaf...

    keeping the car warm all night

    Well I can only tell you what I was told by a Nissan USA tech and the tech people at the Nissan dealer in Topsham, Maine. They said "If the original window sticker does not show a battery heater in the Options then the car doesn't have it." My leaf is a 2017 S with 30 kWh pack and went to a...

    keeping the car warm all night

    KnightMB, you are generally correct but my Leaf came from So. California (via Carvana) and the original window sticker does not show a battery heater in the options. If you read the manual closely it always says "if so equipped" when talking about the heater. I have never seen any sign of...

    keeping the car warm all night

    I'm retired and live in mid-Maine with a 2017 Leaf S. As I understand my car there is zero traction battery heating or cooling - nothing to help in any situation. Two decades ago I could not have owned an EV like the Leaf because the weather was too frigid - cold spells that lasted 10 or 12 days...
