Well, props due to My Electric Avenue and Benfields - just learnt that my Leaf is just about to be registered and delivery is likely to be arranged for the end of next week.

That would be the exact provisional target date they set when placing the order at the start of May, which would be 3 weeks from order to delivery. If it happens, that is most unacceptable! I still don't have a charge point installed at home (about 3-4 weeks away), and @nuWorld Energy still have the EVSE kit on backorder so I probably won't have a charging brick in time!

I foolishly expected the same languishing delays other users had when no info on a confirmed date was forthcoming. What a happy dilemma to be in :D.

Unfortunately our Leaf is coming with 6.6kW charger and no brick so life is going to get interesting in those initial weeks with no home charger and no EVSE brick. Bring on the range anxiety! :mad::D:mad::D I hope public charging in Bristol is up to the job!!

Why the delay with your home charge unit? Are you waiting for British gas or are you having it fitted by a local government accredited installer?

@Chris Everitt Specifically I want a 32A Type 2 socketed Rolec unit - most are fitting pod point or Chargemaster/Polar under OLEV which I don't want to touch with a barge pole. Installer I'd been talking to isn't local so batching up installs.

You only get one chance at the grant so you best get the 32amp one. You had bad experiences with the other manufacturers? The unit being fitted externally?

Yes, external. Won't give money to Chargemaster, pod-point style over substance. Rolec unit actually has integral breaker, easily replaceable parts & din mount.

Thanks. I'm also taking an Outlander PHEV on the company. GX4h in Amethyst Black. Guess we're waiting for the same boat from Japan to dock in Avonmouth! Drove one last week, some annoying issues but overall very impressed.

Pfft! I ordered my Leaf Acenta with 6.6kW charger end of march, was given a 2nd on May delivery date which is now extended to 27th June! In contrast I got my home Rolec ordered and installed in 5 days! (paid for the 32A upgrade) I am suffering from delay anxiety :(

Ouch! Also through Fleetdrive/Benfields on the Elec Avenue social trials? If so, either they've mixed me up with someone else or its the old nhs waiting list trick of taking delivery of my delivery date, instead of taking delivery. :mad:

Hi Paul, I am very sorry for the delays that you had experienced, unfortunately if the factory delay delivery to the dealer, it has a knock on affect and I promise you I am on the phone hounding the dealer and Nisan. I hope you are enjoying your Leaf, and I am always happy to help or to answer any questions you have.

Hi Rob, I am answering as me, not Fleetdrive, but my reply was to my customer, sorry, bit confusing.
Hi Vicky, even if you are answering as you I would make life clear for everybody if you could add your commercial interests as an explanation in your signature.

Thanks Andy
