  5. ???40KW 2017 Leaf???

    Nissan Leaf40
    Currently looking for a used car. I've seen a 2017 Leaf advertised as 40KW. It's the 20111-2017 model in the pictures.... so presumably that's bull and it is not 40KW. Or did Nissan produce any 2nd gen leafs with the bigger battery. When did the first Gen3 leafs arrive? Would some of those be...

  7. Steering position when driving straight ahead?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    When I’m driving in a straight line on any road, my steering is always pointing towards between 1 to 2 o’clock.

  8. Rapid Charge Adaptors

    General Charging Discussion
    I changed from a Leaf to an Ioniq BEV last year, and am getting increasingly frustrated by the lack of CCS chargers in the UK, and the high failure rate amongst them (especially Ecotricity). Has anyone seen or thought about making an adaptor from Chademo or Tesla Supercharger to a CCS plug? I...

  14. Cycle Carriers for EV's

    I am thinking of getting Solar installed to compliment my Leaf. However I spent more.time during the day at work than I do at home so I am not sure how much it would be used. Also the batteries that are on offer are a teeny capacity so are they worth it. Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm due to collect my new Leaf 2.0 Tekna tomorrow. It's an upgrade from my 30kwh Tekna. With the old car I was using the excellent android app Leaf Manager and the horribly slow Nissan EV app. Does the new Leaf use the same apps or are there new apps?
