Roomier on the inside than the Model S??gsleaf wrote:Ahh, that makes sense. I guess I hadn't realized that for some reason. The Leaf feels so much roomier inside.
I only sat in the front drivers side for about 40 seconds, but that was my impression. I may have to try it again sometime and see if my impression changes.Zythryn wrote:Roomier on the inside than the Model S??
While I have had the opportunity to sit in a Leaf, but not yet a Model S, I find it hard to believe that I am reading your post correctly.
OT from this thread but that picture reminded me of something I've been wondering about, is the stage being set for people to bitch about charging cables being a tripping hazard? And along come the lawyers...palmermd wrote: its the only picture I could find with them side by side. Wish it was a better angle, but you can see the width difference and if you look closely you can see the length difference as well.
Isn't the charger near the rear? I heard it was in the back because they were originally planning for wireless charging. No idea if that's true or not.Herm wrote:Better design.
The S is designed from the ground up as an electric.. the motor and inverter are on the rear axle and so on.. the Leaf is based on existing Nissan cars and their parts bin, plus its designed to be built in a conventional assembly line.. motor/inverter in the front, batteries in the gas tank area etc.. an interesting thing about the Leaf is that they did not put the charger under the hood, apparently they had no room!
