Ten years ago when the first Nissan Leaf hit UK roads, one of the great claims was that the Nissan design was aimed at enabling Vehicle to Grid (V2G), because they had the foresight to make the On-Board-Charger (OBC) bidirectional. But here we are 10 years later, in the middle of an energy...
Hi not sure if this is already covered (I can't find it) but I have a 2019 leaf tekna that won't precool using the app. I know the app is flaky but this has never worked since I bought the car 6 months ago. I set the car to cool (16 degrees), jump in and it's like sitting in a sauna!! Even the...
Yesterday I picked up my Leaf. Is a car for my wives (rear seat heating - find them quite great :)
My daughter likes to do pampa festivals (construction trailer in the field, then the party starts). Now the Leaf has a CHAdeMO interface, where you can let power flow bidirectionally. This would...
Ok, who will be at the Fully Charged Live Show this weekend? I'll be there Saturday (say Hi if you spot me!).
It'll be the first opportunity for members of the public to drive the Ariya in the UK. Having had two opportunities myself to drive the Ariya now (Millbrook Proving Ground, and also...

After selling my Soul EV last year I'm now desperate to get another EV after having to run diesel for the past few months. The thought of the particulates and the hit to my wallet are both killing me! Only problem is with my budget I'm going to be limited to the Gen 1 higher mileage Leafs...
I was lucky enough to get invited to Nissan's HQ in Maple Cross yesterday to take a look around an early pre-pre-production version of the Ariya. I have to say I was very impressed.
Full Disclosure: I work for Chorley Group, who have 5x Nissan franchises, 2x MG, Kia, Hyundai, and Vauxhall in...
Something I see come up a lot on a Nissan Leaf is front brake discs advisories on the MOT and then when the vehicle is in for a service they are advised to be replaced.
I mentioned a while ago in a comment that there is a difference between a MOT standard and a service standard. A...
Just a heads up, we are now seeing a huge increase in Nissan Leaf vehicles coming in for servicing that have never had there reduction gear oil inspected nor has it been changed.
The oil is supposed to be inspected every service, two things really need to happen at the very least take the...
I have a Nissan Leaf Tekna 30kWh, early 2017 for sale. I had it serviced today and was told it was in excellent condition especially the battery... The only reason I am selling it is that having now had our first BEV we realise we need something with a longer range. We easily get 110 miles...
Well in the Introduction / hello forum, I posted about how I
FOUND a 2011 Nissan Leaf...with several broken / missing parts.
I've never owned an EV and would like to restore it if this 2011 Leaf ("Nissy" ) can be made roadworthy
for under $3000.
Note that, it already has storage, mechanical...
The worst experience of my life.
I really want an electric car but was put in a white leaf 70 Reg which was said to be Top spec that didn't compare to my Tekna Micra.
The nearest EV charging Pod that is over 5 years old was 10 feet away yet it only gave me options of Nissan dealers no matter...
So I generally need just a few quick pointers:
I'm going for a tekna, 24kw c. 50,000 miles, c. 2014/2015 yrs.
I know to look for:
12 bars on battery
But What kind of SOH and Ahr should I look for?
And how can you tell if the data has been tampered with?
My wife's car insurance is due in a few week's time.
I used PlugInsure in the past & it was very cheap. For example, I paid about £200 for the car insurance premium for my Nissan Leaf 30 KWh a year ago.
PlugInsure gave my wife a rather high quote. They claim it's because their main...
Hello all, I am new to the EV world just recently stumbled upon the concept as I was browsing for my next potential vehicle purchase. So as I'm new to the EV scene, I've been doing my research and watching a lot of youtube videos and I've come to settle on a potential buy. The Nissan leaf caught...
Hi. I have a 66 Nissan Leaf (22k miles), due for a “major service” at a cost of £209 from Nissan. It suspect it also needs replacement tyres and brake pads (maybe even discs...), which I’ve booked it into the local garage for. They haven’t done EV servicing before but are happy to do the “usual...
Hello EV owners!
Anyone knows if its possible to just change the touch screen, (digitizer) of the sat-nav unit in 2018 LEAF, without completely replacing the whole thing ? I can only find this part for older LEAF sat-nav from Clarion but not the latest one.
thanks in advance for any feedback
