Who would leave their car at an airport for 6 weeks?

Not me, but in any case it is not true. My car loses up to 1% a day but 0.5% a day is typical.

I have had to leave my car in an airport for extended periods before.

Anyway, I apparently wrong on the Vampire drain so my apologies. I'm not sure where I read it but I was under the impression that the vampire drain is much higher than it is. Seems to me it was on the Tesla Forum. Regardless if you guys are not seeing this issue it makes me happy as we plan on replacing our smart next year with a Model 3. It will be my wifes car. I'll continue to drive the leaf. We are getting the long range. AWD, white, white interiour, EAP, upgrade wheels. Its only money. :)

When the Model 3 first came out a few owners reported vampire losses of 6+ miles a day but that has been resolved for a long time.
Your choice sounds great. I ended up not buying AWD and have been a happy driver in the snow and ice ever since I put decent winter tyres on the car. AWD or not, the "all-seasons" that come with the car are anything but.

Looks like 62kWh is our number.
And 226 mile range. Seems low.

About 400 people tuned into the youtube broadcast. I figure you will get at least four.

I had the advantage of being in the room in Las Vegas so I could pick up additional information by talking to Nissan execs after the cameras were turned off.

There were two simultaneous media events. One in Japan that was live-streamed and one in Las Vegas. I’m not sure if the Vegas one was live streamed but I believe Nissan will post the video on YouTube as they have with previous similar “fireside chat” media briefings.
