so what is most efficient? closing the front air inlet?

anybody worked on the e-NV200 as well?

what about adding door seals to the LEAF, like any premium manufacturer?

Most efficient is completely removing all bodywork and replacing it with a properly engineered aerodynamic shape.

Yes, the e-nv200 can be improved significantly with a partial kamm back as well as smooth undertrays.

The Leaf already has door seals.

I have wondered whether you could do a clear wrap in the front to reduce drag, but still keep the headlights usable.

Dala,

Do you know what temperature we could reasonably get up to with this kit installed? We regularly hit 38C where I live, but I also never QC. I have a 2011. Would a 24 kWh that only drives up to 60 miles at a time ever run into a problem?

What components might overheat as a result of the reduced airflow?
You will get a message on the dash if the AC system gets to overtemperature conditions. Then just remove one section. I wouldn't worry about it at all.
