Re: Meeting with Nissan, Phoenix, Jan 8, 2013, 6pm, drinks p

Wed Jan 09, 2013 7:18 am

is the 6.6kwh standard now or an option?
Is the range improved?
Is it real leather or leatherette?
did they improve carvings? ( or any of the interface?)
Is there a way to get rid of the OK accept each time you enter the car?
Will it handle better cold weather ( battery liquid warmer)
Did they install a good defogger in the car at last?
Is the steering telescopic?
Can we finally order the car with a Sunroof?

That's the things that matter the most to me.

Cheers

The four buttons on the lower left have changed. Clearly the one on the left is the timer override button. So the hatch release is now electrically operated? The auto button looks like a toggle, is that to automatically open the hatch when you stop? And what's the button with the plug "face" on it?

What about:
  • Is the HVAC heatpump?
  • is there HWS (heated windshield)?
  • Has the size of battery pack (in kWh) increased and if the "useable" battery size increased?

The only Nissan LEAF battery chart i had is one showing temperature performance. Its for the 2010-2012 LEAF, but what is apparent is that capacity at reduced temperatures is dependent on rate of discharge. With the LEAF gaining reverse cycle heating, not only is energy draw reduced compared to resistive heating, the power draw is also reduced. SO with the same battery, reverse cycle heating will claw back most of winter's lost range. Perhaps not for some regions, but for the vast majority of regions where the vehicles is sold.

Ok, TickTock, great checklist on the MY2013!

But... What was said about the list of suggestions/complaints? Esp, does DCQC void batt warranty?
Anyone have a youtube link or an audio link?

Those out of range of the meeting want to know

Found a greencar reports link http://www.greencarreports.com/news/108 ... ?fbfanpage

Here are some of my pix:

LEAFSCAN™ still works properly!

Image
The J1772 port now has a light (upper left) and an electromechanical locking function.

Image
It is activated by a 3-position switch on the dash.

...more to come...

The dash read 60% when I took that picture. 60% != 62.25%, so they must be padding the ends to make 0% "empty" and 100% "full".

I spent all day Monday renewing my pilot stuff (medical, BFR), but midday Monday is when I received airline tickets from Nissan for the trip. I showed up at the hotel and meeting place around 4pm.
