My Black SL (VIN #15051) from Team Nissan Marietta was delivered at 2:00 PM on November 9th, 2011. If you want the most knowledgeable LEAF sales guy in Atlanta, it is Wayne Parker at Team. Call him at 770-815-3108.
I drove it 70 miles with 5 miles left on the battery. I'm sure the battery could have used a longer charge at the dealership, but I had been waiting (as most have) for almost 2 years now, and I had to run carpool at 3:00. I will take my chances on a partial charge.
It took awhile for the kids to realize it was me. They marveled at the quietness (my other car is a Jeep Libery Diesel). They also liked the little tree builder function on the dash, I could care less. The foot to the floor power impressed me - squealed the tires and all.
Of course, it was my 11 year old son with the range anxiety as the car was dipping into the single digits on the charge, flashing numbers on the dash, and annoucing "Low Battery" over the speakers. I told him that the car was small and light enough that we could push it home - of course it was raining...
I then reassured him that at "0", we still had about 7 miles of charge before going to turtle mode. We were only out 3.4 miles from the house with 8 still showing on the guage. I switched to ECO mode to eek out that last bit of charge, ending at 5 as he plugged in the charger at the house.
He may have an electric as his first car. My 14 year old daughter (on the other hand) wants the Jeep. That's my girl!
I visit clients every day, so I am looking to score close to 100 if I can. Since I receive mileage reimbursement, the more miles I can obtain on a charge, the more jingle in my pocket. Thank you Nissan for delivering what I (we) have been wanting for a long time.
A most happy customer,
