"it may be problematic for you but is surely isn't for most people, the majority of tesla owners have installed 240 50+amp service. there are a few people who live in cond/apartments who are having troubles getting this level of service installed but those people are few. "

Tesla owners are hardly representative of the typical vehicle buyer!

"I have to call BS on this comment, in my experience there is no way a LEAF will go any more than 75 miles or so at speeds around 65 MPH. no way no how it just is not possible."

Really? And you have a Leaf to drive and to verify that statement, right?
As some might say, "A Tesla troll on the Leaf forum".

Perhaps if moderators simply started deleting such offending tangents, the masses might eventually get the idea...

If I continue to get any more complaints about your name calling I'm going to put you on a temporary ban form the site. Last warning on the name calling on multiple threads, throttle it back or you get a time out. There are many complaints about your posts over an extended time and the frequency is increasing.

I thought you guys might be interested in a few of these notes:

- The highest regen I've seen is 76 kW during hard braking, leading me to believe that under the correct circumstances the motor would be able to use its full 81 kW for regen.

- In B mode the brake lights come on during moderately strong regen, which is strong enough to nearly bring the car to a stop. Not quite i3/Tesla one-pedal driving, but very close. Brake blending is flawless, with none of the clunkiness of the Volt or the unevenness of the Leaf.

- Yesterday I drove the car 87.4 miles and had 31% SOC remaining. The route was the 110 @ Redondo Beach Blvd to Downtown LA, Downtown LA to Northridge, Northridge to Tarzana, Tarzana to Glendale, Glendale back to Redondo Beach Blvd. in Gardena. Speeds as high as 70 MPH with a blend of LA slow-n-go traffic. Fan only on the HVAC.

- The accelerator pedal is bottom-hinged and very tall, like a BMW. It allows the driver to have their full shoe sole on the entire pedal allowing for very precise metering of power/regen.

- I hope this doesn't jinx it, but assembly quality is flawless. All gaps are even, paint is glossy, nothing rattles or squeaks, and the suspension is quiet (in stark contrast to my Volt's clanky setup).

That's all I can think of for now. So far, so good! Loving it!
Interesting that the South Bay location (110 & 405 - Redondo Beach Blvd) is where I've seen a number
of factory covered Souls driving around.

Great overall sales pitch! Especially:

"I hope this doesn't jinx it, but assembly quality is flawless. All gaps are even, paint is glossy, nothing rattles or squeaks"

Given that most all your posts relate to the Soul, one has to wonder how credible your posts are
and who you represent. Happy trolling!

Wow. Uh, I've been on the Volt forums since this time about three years ago and I've been a lurker on MNL for some time because the Leaf was my primary choice until the Soul. Not sure how I'm "trolling" by posting about the Soul in...the Soul thread. But ok. Your posts sure seem negative towards anything non-Leaf. Maybe you're a Nissan troll.

I've been driving a Volt for three years, had a Prius and Gen 1 Insight prior to that, drove a RAV4-EV for some time (original MagneCharge model), and was on the GM EV1 team in the late '90s. I can corroborate all of this. I'm now just a guy who bought a Soul and thought people visiting the Soul thread might like to hear about the car.

If this is inappropriate I can keep my thoughts to myself.
2018 Tesla Model 3 Long Range (100% charge @ 43k miles shows 5.8% degradation)

2013 Nissan Leaf S + QC sold with warranty pack replacement (~35% degradation @ ~40k miles)

2015 Kia Soul EV+ Lease returned 10/14/17 45,000 miles w/ 13.8% degradation.

I thought it was liberal strategy of getting SOMEONE ELSE to pay YOUR share
