[Oeva-list] Leaf range vs. heat

It may be pretty serious if Nissan can’t find a quick solution to the Leaf
range vs. heat issue.  Apparently range for some Phoenix owners is half that
normally expected.  The local PHX CBS affiliate aired a piece where a Leaf
owner called his new Leaf a “boat anchor” if he can’t get more than 44 miles
range on a hot day.  This could be a serious setback for Nissan and EVs in
general.  The 110° days in Phoenix are not that unusual anymore, and not
just in the South, and that’s not likely to change.  I wonder if there’s a
connection between this and the story about an LA dealer cutting Leaf prices
by $5,000 to clear them out of his floor-plan.  I expected to first hear a
range vs. temp. complaint come out of Minneapolis in the winter, not due to
heat in Phoenix!

The day is fast approaching when we’ll look back on burning stuff in our
cars to make them go, as quite quaint!  

Like a Stanley Steamer or riding a horse to school!


What about a “well regulated militia” don’t they understand?
