AutoGuide Reviews the Leaf

Just wanted to share this new video review of the Nissan Leaf from AutoGuide. Good overview of its features and options.
Quote:
Some people will say it just has 150 miles, but others will say its just $30,000. That means its the perfect combination of price and range
Not going to lie that the way he says Nissan irks me aha. "Knee san".

The battery's cooling system is horrible so degeneration is going to be pretty bad over time. The Leaf is great, but not a car you'd want to buy instead of lease. Once the lease is over, you won't have to deal with a shrunken drive range.

Nissan is definitely going to have to go with liquid cooling in the future as that seems to be becoming the norm in EV's. Automakers should be doing everything than can to preserve battery life, and the Leaf is already seeming to suffer from successive quick charging.

Heat seems to be one of the main factors contributing to range degeneration, should just go liquid like Tesla and use a few more coils between the battery cells.

Nissan was probably just focused on bringing the base price as long as possible, that they weren't considering the long term impacts of air cooling tech. The Leaf and Model S don't exactly sit in the same price brackets. But I believe the technology is also available in the Bolt.
