The low mileage daily commuter is not what they are looking for they are looking for med to long drives daily to see how and where we will get the car charged ie home, work, on the road.

EXTREMELY unlikely. That unit was "created" 10+ years ago for generation 2 EVs (Gen1=a century ago).

No that is not the unit. They are unveiling their new unit next week at the PlugIn conference in San Jose. Got the email today talking about it: http://bit.ly/arEJ0t

I too have received the approval email. I live in the San Diego area and responded to the survey as making primarily short trips. As some commenters have already mentioned, I believe that the EV Project is selecting a variety of driving styles in each of the selected markets. Last month, the EV Project added 1,000 more LEAFs to the original agreement, and also added 2,600 Chevy Volts, along with adding Los Angeles and Washington, DC.

For more info, and to learn more about the LEAF and if it's right for you, please check out my website:http://livingleaf.info

Could someone please post an image of the email from ECOtality for your free charger?

I didn't get any reply. I am so sad :-( I checked my inbox 7/22 emails and nothing came up... so sad...

I received an email from my LEAF specialist yesterday. He went to a LEAF training on the 22nd. This is one thing he learned about people who have been accepted into the EV Project:
They did make note that if you qualified for the ETEC dock (notification sent 7/22) your Nissan LEAF SV(lower trim level) would be upgraded with a free level 3 DC FAST CHARGE PORT.

Looks like they want data on all charging practices, Level 2 and Level 3. I've reserved a SL trim level, so won't apply to me. But this does seem to say that SV models will not have a Level 3 charger in them.

Yep, that's what we were told when the car first went on sale. I thought Nissan had back-tracked from that though, and all cars were now going to come with L3 capability. OR they never did change their minds and just went silent on the issue. OR they changed their minds and now it's not going to come with L3 capability again.

The EV Project Web Portal

Sat Jul 24, 2010 9:43 pm

Check out the new and updated EV Project Web Portal

There is a software demonstration of the role of the web portal

and additional information and FAQ's pertaining to the program

Check it out at http://www.theevproject.com/

The software portal may be accessed by clicking on the 'Watch Software Video Preview' button

Clicking OVERVIEW bring up a page with the FAQ button

Note: Question 5 asks What will be the role of fast charging?
The reply is The Nissan EVs included in the program will be fast-charge capable.


I do believe this confirms Level 3 Chargers for all participating Nissan LEAFs, regardless of model
