New Nissan LEAF Survey

Tue Jan 28, 2014 8:30 pm

Just got an email from Nissan asking me to take a survey. The interesting thing about the survey is they use a theoretical "150 mile range Nissan Leaf" in many of the questions.
They also asked lots of question about charging stations.

Has anyone else taken this survey. Maybe 150 mile range leaf will be here sooner than we think!!! :)

Here is the link but it's dead after the survey. I too was struck by all the questions on a theoretical 150 mile battery and how much one would be willing to pay as a option. ... uNJxGd&_=1

I just took the survey. I didn't think it was very good since there was no place to submit comments since much of it did not apply to me. The best part, IMO, is they are starting to talk about a longer range - 150 miles. When Kadota-san (LEAF Chief Engineer) came to our EV Summit at Google in Aug. 2013, we talked about a longer range. I told him 150 mile range would be attractive for me to consider another LEAF. However, I can't see a good reason for me to purchase another 75-mile EV.

That would be a 36 kwh battery with 84*1.5 = 126 real world miles. If the battery actually lasted, it would be a great vehicle for a lot of uses. Not holding my breath on either the range or the longevity of the battery.

I also got the survey. I indicated that I wouldn't buy another leaf at the beginning of the survey (range degrades too quickly). I did reply that I would buy another leaf if the EPA rating were 150 miles and I would pay more for it.

I received a survey at 6:25 pm Pacific today (1/28/14) with the subject "Nissan LEAF Survey" from "Nissan Market Intelligence" which is hosted on

I plan to take it in the next few days, if not tonight.

Interesting that you guys mention "theoretical "150 mile range Nissan Leaf"". I just wonder on what test/speed that might be achieved at. Per a European Nissan exec, the Leaf's range is now up to 200 km (124 miles). :roll: See ... 4&start=30" onclick=";return false;, if you want to see what I'm talking about.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I was thinking my next EV might come with a ~40 kWh battery, but packaged as an Infiniti. However, Infiniti's EV plans are on ice?

got the survey done last night.

150 range sounds nice, but we have to take it with a couple grains of salt

36 kwh pack would easily fit into the leaf but would be heavier
31 usable kwh x 4 120 real miles= 150 nissan miles?

I would by a longer range Leaf for sure.
very happy with the car except or the styling and range

one thing to think about and it was hit on in the survey , a larger pack will take longer to charge even on chademo as it is limited to a measley 50kw charge rate at best.
the reality is if your pack is at a mid state of soc or the temps are really cold or really hot your charge rate is lower , more like 32kw rate.

so longer range/bigger pack= longer quickcharge.

my lease is up Feb 2015 , hoping a new improved leaf is out by then. if not i will not buy another 75/84 mile bev

come on nissan do it right!
