I have a new EVSE in South Oceanside, at the 78/5 interchange. If you're going coastal and need a charge, let me know.
And don't forget any and all LEAF-certified Nissan dealers in between. :)

Perhaps find one and have lunch

:lol: Funny !

If it's a reasonable dealer they'd want to see one of the first LEAFs in real life. Plus Nissan corporate requires publicly available chargers ... and you could offer to get your annual battery check done there as well as the brake fluid changes.

Still ... yes, that's funny ! :lol:

Mossy Nissan Escondido (at the 78 and the 15) have EVSEs available for the public. They are receiving a Federal tax credit for the EVSEs, so you shouldn't feel like you are taking advantage of them by using their stations. I would call ahead of time because if they get a transporter of LEAFs in, then the EVSEs may be all busy.

Most certainly I would charge up at any Nissan dealer along the way if you need to. This is what they're there for.

Other customers would also see you charging and ask the salesmen "That there one of them newfangled electric Leafs? That's the damndest thing I ever saw!" This would not only be good PR for the dealer but to show the cars are in actual use on the road.

Good on ya, Mate! Can't say I am not extremely jealous. :cry: Wish it was me going down there to pick mine up, but I'm afraid our EV project home assessment pushed us way back in line. Hope everything goes smoothly and deliveries start getting hot and heavy over the next few weeks. Looking forward to the feedback here on the whole experience while waiting. It's hard to be patient, but I can live vicariously and maybe learn something in the meantime.
