Hi from Vancouver BC

Hi all, just found this forum, as this is my first EV I am hoping to pick up some tips and ticks.
Just had my 2018 SL for less than a week now. Glad to say that I like it so far. Electrical cost of commuting this week went from $60 to less than $8 (not counting insurance and depreciation costs - however, even with that I still expect this vehicle to reach cost of ownership parity with a cheap ICE in around 6-7 years)

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your first EV! Its certainly quite an investment up front, but I'm sure it'll quickly begin to pay for itself with the rising fuel prices that we'll see this summer. Did you get yourself a home charging system as well?

Great choice on an EV.
However, with all the other options we have to choose from these days, did you at least test drive the Bolt, Volt and even the BMW i3?

Welcome to the forum and the world of electrics! Did you decide to take the plunge just to try and save on commuting costs? And you'll be glad to know that Kelley Blue Book expects the Leaf to be one of the best value retaining vehicles on the market.
