Here's an interesting video of a LEAF accelerating to 98 MPH (157 KPH) on a highway somewhere in the EU.

That will be "great" for driving around here, ... once we get
the road surfaces fixed, and remove most of the other cars.

More seriously, ... Wow, that's Fast!

Now, if only it will go up hills and still go more than 50 miles
on an 80% charge, we could actually go on "trips".

First trip, gettig home from the dealer. :)

At the start of the video, I can't catch his name or location. I can understand him when he says, "Just like to show how fast this full electric car. We can go". His profile says he's from Moscow Russia. I wonder if this video was shot in Moscow.

The numerous Dekra crash test he has uploaded are in "Swiss town Wildhause that two hours away from Zurich". Looking at the road & cars, I think that is more likely than Moscow.

Yep, three stumps and a withered bush.

I doubt i will ever exceed 65 miles per hour, but still nice to see that quick smooth and quiet acceleration
