Well this is certainly interesting.

The car has spent the night in "Perry, Georgia" where the temperature is currently 43F.

And the charge has dropped from 75% to 25%.

No miles are being reported as driven from Carwings yet. But I'm not so sure that the battery lost 50% of it's charge just sitting in the cold.

When you say ... "no miles driven" ... I assume it appears that the car was not even started (on/off = trip), right ? And that update could take 24 hours.

Did one of the crew take the car off the truck and forget to turn it off (no noise) and/or also left heater running ? I would call the moving company and issue a warning ... but hey that's just me.

Less likely: a software glitch.

(Worst case: this CarWings stuff is GREAT evidence if you need it ... keep all your screenshots. Hopefully not, but what if they took it for a joy ride ? :x At least you have all the evidence :)

Was a timer set to pre-warm up the car? :)

Unless this is fairbanks alaska, i woudn't expect the charge to drop that much in georgia of all places.

Has your car arrived? Did it make it by the 20th?

He got his silver LEAF on the 19th. Like others, he's too busy reading manuals and playing with the computers to post much. I did see a new name in Carwings that looks suspiciously like his.... and he's already way ahead of me in economy ranking. No news on what he's learned about the big battery drop.

Did OP ever reported back about the delivery of his LEAF and the drop in battery during the transit?

i wonder how he feels being the first Leaf in his area knowing that Leaf #2 is most likely 4-6 months behind him?
