Following all the negative talk about the Leaf 3 and it’s charging woes, I thought that ‘the Lemon’ was an appropriate name
It is in Pearl Black Metallic, my first ever black car. It has the Dynamic Pack fitted, which is the blue accents to the front, sides to the sills and rear spoiler as well as the Protection Pack, which is mats front & rear, boot liner and rear bumper protection. It also has a Shark Fin aerial and mudflaps.
I have bought it from @Miles Roberts & his colleague Jon of Chorley Nissan Burnley, which means a short drive of 270 miles back to South London. Tomorrow we are off to Oxfordshire for a few days away, then I’m in Birmingham for a couple of days. A lot of miles in a short space of time. Not usual for me. Let’s see how the car copes. Should be fine.
The collection went well thanks to Miles & Jon.
So far driven 109 miles. Stopped with 17% to charge.
The speedo seems to be about 5% out compared to Tom Tom GO Mobile on my iPhone.
Very relaxing drive. Learning to trust ProPilot.
The car was rapid charged to 98% before I left Chorley Nissan, using their charger which only charges at 20kW.
My first rapid charge.
Charged at 40kW to about 65% then ramped down to 34kW.
At 70% down to 32kW.
At 83% down to 24kW
90% down to 21kW
Then my 45 minutes ran out.
28.5kWh put into the battery costing £8,55.
That is roughly double what I would normally get in my 24kW Leaf.
So far, very happy.
Today the car can travel further than I can as I’m tired!
