Leaf in Ashland WI

Spotted a Leaf driving by in Ashland, Wisconsin on Friday. Not such a big deal in most cities, but the nearest Level 2 charger is almost 100 miles away in Duluth, MN.

How did that car get to Ashland?

I passed a Leaf on the highway between here & Ottawa a week ago -- also far from any fast chargers.

Usually I'm one of the slower cars on the road, but I passed him like he was standing still. He was definitely driving to make sure he got to the next plug-in.

Can't get away from them here. (EVs work here since there's nowhere to go!) iMiEVs are a bit more rare. Also been seeing the BMW EVs, both types, kicking around town.
