I agree with the majority: While it is technically possible, there are just too many variables and uncertainties in such a scenario and it would appear the Leaf is just not a good fit for your requirements. I'd stick with the Prius.

I live in the Inland Empire and drive to LA daily; 65 miles one way, 60 on the freeway. I currently have a Prius and know how to maximize the mileage. I consistantly get 52mpg after 170,000 miles. If I drive the leaf at a moderate speed 55 to 60, will I get at least 70 miles. Does anyone have any experience in this area. I'm a little concerned with the wind tunnel in the Fontana area. I love the car and technology, and I'm planning to install a couple of charging stations at work to support other drivers. Any advice for a newbe would be appreciated.
