Towing light duty cargo trailers (up to 2000 lbs) in non-extreme conditions isn't going to affect the car or battery life any more than driving up a incline or accelerating hard. In other words, it should be immeasurable in the blend of all your other driving. I guess if you were doing it every day you could measure something eventually, but the effects would be from increased temperature of using more juice and charging more often.[/quote]
Thanks Electric4Me & everyone,
That's exactly the kind of info I'm after. I just wanted to make sure the car wouldn't automatically shut down if it was struggling too much. I'm going to buy a LEAF next week, will post some pics once the hitch & trailer are installed.[/quote]
Doesn't the owner's manual say that the Leaf should not be used for towing??
