Is anyone interested in doing a Mk1 vs Mk2 Leaf range test?

I have a Mk1 and I thought it would be interesting and fun to do a side-by-side test of range between the Mk1 and 2.

I though with both cars with LeafSpy or LeafDD it would be easy to drive a route together and see how much power was used. By doing the same route at the same time you could be sure that the cars were both driven at the same speeds and with the same acceleration and so removing differences in driving style or traffic conditions.

It would be a pretty conclusive test between the two cars and if we could get more than one of each mark then it would get even more accurate.

Anyone interested then post here and tell others that might be interested and perhaps we could get something organised perhaps at a rapid charging station... followed by a coffee and a review of the figures.

Any takers?

I'd replied in another forum that I'd be up for that but now realise you have a Gen 1 too so no good for comparison. We can still meet up if you are in the area though

I agree the MK1 in cold weather with heater on a range of around 60 miles is about right, I will let you know what the Mk2 seems to give? I know when I had been driving my daughters Tekna around it was more seemed to do 65 70 ish but when I get my new Leaf this week I will send more info. By the way the range I quoted in Tekna was with heater and seats on as well. The Mk2 heater is more efficient so that's were the range must gain.
Power on.
