    So as an owner of a MK1 Leaf, I made the leap of faith on the opinion that the price of replacement batteries would fall, the physical size of batteries would shrink and so the car could be given a new lease of life when it's range becomes impractical. With the rate of development in the EV...

    Hi, I'm a newbie about EVs and I'm here to ask for a clarification.

  7. General EV Discussion
    Hi all, I've read up a bit about decreased range and slow charging in cold weather. Does anyone know if there are manufacturers guidelines on what the optimum temperature range for the batteries are? Or what temperatures the battery warmers kick in? Thanks
