New LeafEVer


After Lots! of reading and calling dealers ..our family got a new 2018 Leaf SV. The deals from dealer (7000$) and power company (3000$) made it a no brainer nice EV. Had it shipped from Maryland to Michigan but money well spent.
Love the solitude/quietnessness! and the super trick torque. The only challenge has been getting winter setup before biggest snow comes. I have some decent snow tires and next week will have Sentra rims coming for mounting. 17"x6.5" offset 45mm, so should be all good. The stock tires are okay but slippy-sloppy in real snow.
The all started with wife getting a Chrysler Pacifica PHEV and within 4 weeks now as electric as we can ... I think LOL! Tesla roof and powerwall....?
Thank you Charlie C

Glad to have a new owner on the forum.

Did you by any chance test drive any rivals like the Chevy Bolt/Volt or Tesla Model 3 before deciding to settle on the Leaf??

Keep us posted on how your Leaf experience goes.

Welcome to the forum Charlie and congrats on your new Leaf. If you do plan on becoming an EV only family, then looking into an off grid charging system is definitely something you should look into. Nissan plans on offering their home kit to UK customers called Energy Solar.

Congrats on the Leaf and welcome to the community. Sounds like you got an incredible deal on it, which should help to cover that winter tire setup. What brands of tires are you looking at?

Welcome. Happy to hear that you transitioned to being a full EV family. If you do decide to properly retrofit your home for solar energy, the savings you're going to make on a yearly basis will quickly add up. Not to mention if you go the powerwall route you can go off grid during peak times.
