How is the 380 mile range Leaf order coming along, Sal? I'm in touch with a cell supplier that could deliver enough batteries for that amount of range for just under $10k, but somebody would have to actually assemble them into a pack
Oh, and it would weigh around 420 kg.
You’ll have to ask Fenix. From the time I heard the name Fenix to now I moved 15 miles closer to NYC and my clients. So, my commute is 3 to 28 miles round trip now. It used to be 58 miles.
I will NEVER put $10,000 into my 2013 LEAF.
It’s not going to happen.
With all my connections on FB I sent 250+ customers to Fenix. They tell me they will give me their battery for FREE for 250 months.
I told them I want 48kWh for 125 months for FREE. They said OK. If they will fulfill that order I will not say no. Especially if it’s FREE to me.
I really don’t need 380 miles. I need 200.
My next Vehicle that I purchase will be a Tesla CyberTruck. That’s where the $10,000 is going.
But, I will keep the LEAF. Even with my heavily degraded battery, because I live 3.5 miles from midtown NYC and the CT is not going to be fun or inexpensive to park in NYC. When I need to go to NYC I will take the LEAF.
So, at the end of the day, I don’t care about 380 miles of range. I’ll use my CT for long distance driving.
As of right now Fenix is scheduled to bid on a 62 LEAF that’s wrecked. If they win that auction they will be giving me the battery.
That will cost me nothing and I might still get their battery in the future.
From March 1st 2020 to today I’ve driven 46 miles. Don’t need 380 miles range.
