Anyone here in Republic of Ireland?

I know there are 9 other leaf owners in and around where I live but haven't noticed any of them on here.

Hi hsilgnede,

And Hi to all on Mynissanleaf, This is my first post, But i've been watching this forum for a long time. It's great :)

Hsilgnede,

Where on the Island are you ? I'm in Kildare. There are 2 or 3 Leaf owners on boards.ie One of them is around here now and again.

I test drove a leaf last Wednesday in Windsor motors on Belgard Road, I was very impressed with the power delivery, it was a really really cool experience driving an E.V for the first time ever. I hit the accelerator and the shove was really good and the silence, it was all so strange but thrilling. :)

My commute is 85 or so miles a day and currently I am waiting on work to let me know if they will install a charger or not. I don't think I would make it comfortably in winter.

Anyway, do you have a Leaf or thinking of getting one ?

It might be feasible for your work to install just a socket,
and let you use that, with your included EVSE, as a trial.

AH yeah I remember you now. How long are you waiting ?

I think you have a much shorter commute than me if I recall ? Any idea when you will get it ? How long is it waiting for the grant to be processed ?

Sorry for all the questions. :D

My commute is about a 50k round trip. Application went in mid November but I didn't want delivery till January so only pushing it the last few days. Hopeful that I might get it or at least get a date this week.

I'm from Galway region and I saw 2-3 LEAFs (or maybe more as I count by colors) around.

Hi,
just put the money down for an SVE and granny cable on 23rd. We're eagerly in anticipation:) there seems to be a lot of activity on fb and boards, as well as the esb electric cars web.

Just a thought: I use google maps quite a bit, and wonder is there a way of having the esb charger maps activated with full google maps functionality? That way you could plot your journey and if needs be, drag and drop the route nearer some desired charger. Maybe the ESB will oblige by publishing/sharing that map, which is pretty easy to do.
