2020 Leaf roof rack

Mon Feb 08, 2021 1:05 pm

I purchased my 2020 Leaf SV and am wondering if anyone has roof rack on their Leaf. I know they say it will effect my milage but this is only to be used once in a while, not leaving them all the time. Question is which ones have you bought and from where. Im in Vancouver Canada. Many thanks in advance.

Cheers ...Harry

I use a Thule Aero bar (the slightly wing shaped one) with the Leaf mounting kit, and yes it absolutely affects the range, 10-20% less driving range depending on weather and speed, even more with something like my kayak loaded.

Do check the notes for the mounting kit to see if it has a different load capacity than the bar, mine did, 100 or 75kg for the aero bar, but only 45kg with the vehicle specific mounting kit.
