Nissan Leaf

Hello folks,

We took delivery on a leased Nissan Leaf S today. Driving it home was pretty darn cool! It has the charging package, and a backup camera. All the seats are heated, as is the steering wheel, and the outside mirrors.

I checked out the EM Garage, and there are four Leafs listed, but none have any mileage data. Does the garage support EV's?

I will drive ours to work tomorrow, and then again on Friday (probably), and I will log my driving, when possible. I'll use a Kill-A-Watt with the stock EVSE for now - we plan on buying a JuiceBox Premium, which has charge logging.

Driving an EV is quite calm and quiet and smooth. A lot of fun. I am carrying over my ecodriving habits - shift into neutral (hold it in N position for 2s, just like a Prius) and coast.

Sincerely, Neil
