You talking about kWh and miles per kWh? "miles per kW" makes no sense.
The "digital mirror" is also available on gen 2 Leaf. On my Bolt, I personally don't use it most of the time as my eyes have trouble switching focus between the road ahead vs. looking at the digital part of the mirror. So, I normally have it flipped to be a regular mirror.
Yeah, one advantage of Bolt is that that's no rear hump on the floor for the rear center seat.
That's too bad about Bolt price. As for leases, I looked into when I was in the market and didn't feel like paying the amounts I was seeing to "rent" the car for 3 years. Also, the lease deals I was seeing at http://ev-vin.blogspot.com/
back then were for LT trim (lower trim) and pretty stripped down. I wanted Premier (higher trim) + DC FC inlet, at minimum.
I can understand Dave not valuing TMS much. That's an ideal climate for Leaf batteries. However, many people in the US don't live in such a mild climate and we've been burned in the past by Leaf battery degradation and it's still a big unknown on 62 kWh Leaf.
And, as I said at the time in the market (Jan 2019), Leaf Plus wasn't shipping in the US yet. There was only the mention of Spring (2019). Bolts were heavily discounted + had $7500 Federal tax credit. It didn't seem reasonable to think that Leaf Plus would have heavy discounts at the beginning esp. when Bolt's tax credit would fall to $3750 beginning on 4/1/19 (https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/taxevb.shtml
I didn't feel the 40 kWh Leaf (highest capacity available in Jan 2019) would cut it as my only car and rapidgate was in full swing (https://cleantechnica.com/2019/01/05/ni ... re-update/
) w/Nissan balking at releasing the fix to the US market. It wasn't until July 2019 that they finally released it for the US via NTB19-056 (https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2019/ ... 8-9999.pdf
