Have you compared against a Chevy Bolt? They seem to have similar acceleration just curious.
Yea I ended up beating a Mitsubishi Eclipse of all things the other day. For the 0-60 stuff people who want to do that quickly need an EV. Top speed of course we lose bad in a LEAF which is why I think we cannot call a LEAF a sports or performance car but a Tesla does well.

The Bolt used to be speed limited to 88MPH, IIRC. Even the Gen I Leaf would outrun it, given a few miles of road. Is that still true?

88 surprises me just enough for the flux capacitor I guess. I only took my plus all out once but I think it was about 100 I am already starting to forget.

The older Leafs are limited to about 93MPH, and the ePlus to slightly over 100MPH, again IIRC. Or is it slightly over 110MPH...?

I ran the Plus up to 100, kept accelerating well all the way, did not keep track of the time but it was fun!

I don't actually care about being first. I do care about responsiveness.

All of our cars are plenty responsive. :)

I will see if there's one at the Nissan dealer here and take it for a "test drive" and find out.

My 2019 SL Plus was still climbing at 101 by GPS (speedometer indicated the same) with OEM tires inflated to 44 psi. 2015 SL reached governed speed of 94 by GPS with original size tires, would go a little faster after I put 215/55 R17 tires on it. 2011 was governed to 93 on speedometer (which was fairly accurate after programming adjustment in service menu on navigation system), again with tires inflated to 44 psi cold.

I once got my '86 Civic Si up to 125MPH. It was a BIG hill. ;)
