  1. Wanted Leaf Compatible Charging Brick

    Electric Vehicle Classifieds
    Hi All, This is my first post, so be kind if something is not right.:) We picked up our Second hand Leaf on Saturday and so far loving the EV experience, with only some minor range anxiety (but this is fading as I get use to the car). Unfortunately, it only came with a public cable, so I have...

    Ice Breakers
    Hi. After 8 years driving Priuses, I'm really looking forward to going 'properly' electric. Current schedule is I pick up my Tekna from Edinburgh on 16th Dec . Will be commuting from Falkirk to Edinburgh and averaging 20k a year but confident it'll be up to the job. My work has kindly installed...
  5. Is there an DC-AC adaptor cable that allows Leaf to charge on Rapid AC?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I am curious if there is a cable that fits into the large DC port on the car and the other end slots into the AC port of Rapids. Is that even possible, via some sort of transformer somewhere along the cable length, which I guess would technically make it two cables. Anything like this available...
  6. Hello! New Leaf sought

    Ice Breakers
    Hello there My wife and I are committed to buying an EV because we are keen to drive a car that doesn't have emissions and the Leaf seems like the best option for us, with a young family. We test drove a Leaf at the weekend which seemed to seal the deal but now decided the best way to buy...
  7. Purchasing a Leaf/Zoe on 2 year PCP - best deals

  8. Nissan LEAF battery performance issues

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hello, I received a new Nissan LEAF SVE (equivalent to Tekna) in Ireland in April this year and for several months have been very happy with it. However, in September after ca. 7500 km (less than 5000 miles) the battery performance seemed to drop off significantly. Up to that point I had...

  10. Got Leaf but no Home Charger....Good or Bad?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Apologies if this question has already been asked and answered, but I've done quite a bit of clicking around here and it seems that most EV owners have a home charger... is it possible to own a leaf and NOT have one? Like if you lived in a block of flats or in a terraced house with no driveway...
  11. Nissan Leaf GFV seems low

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hi everyone, I asked a dealer about a price for a 30kwh Nissan Leaf Tekna, with 6.6kw charging on a 3 year PCP doing 12k miles per year. The GFV quoted was £4656! This means a depreciation of nearly £28k in three years. Ouch. Even if you ignore the OLEV, at £23k it is eye watering. I've read...

  14. Paris Climate Conference

    General EV Discussion
    Hiya, anyone considering driving an EV to the Climate Conference in first week of December, to demonstrate or just to be there, or just for the hell of it? I'm assuming that some of you have 'green' reasons for choosing an EV -as well as it being pollution-free, quiet, cheap and lovely to drive...
