After owning 5 Leafs that we loved, we went with Tesla Model Ys and were very happy with the decision. The recent price drops, the $7,500 tax credit and the Super Charger network convinced us.Psyclonus wrote: ↑Sat May 13, 2023 6:04 am I'll bring the LEAF up to her and see if she wants to look at it, though with no tax credit and CHAdeMO, it's not a terribly attractive car at the moment. She's also somewhat bitter about losing the ability to turn on her heater remotely in the winter when the 3G network went offline, as that was literally her favorite feature of the two LEAFs she has owned, so not sure how she is feeling about getting another Nissan at moment between the battery debacle and that experience.
Honestly, here in the midwest, actually finding an EV in stock that you can test drive and buy is a real challenge, so far most of the dealers that list them their web sites don't actually have the car available for test drive or sale, we may wind up in a Tesla just for the simplicity of actually buying it and being able to pick it up the same day.
Don’t get me wrong we still loved the Leaf. After buying the first Tesla I was looking for a used Leaf Plus that would qualify for the $4,000 used EV credit below $25,000 and use it for local grocery and doctor runs for the wife. I couldn’t find one. So I bought the wife another Tesla long range Model Y for $42,000 after tax credit
We still use the Hard wired EVSE in the garage. Tessa supplies a J1772 to Tesla adaptor with the Y. We have a n extra Nissan EVSE at our cabin and use it to charge the Tesla. I bought another Adaptor for $50.
