A 2013 Nissan LEAF With 380 Miles Of Range?

April 26th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

Yes, it’s technically possible to stuff over 100 kWh of batteries in an older LEAF, but for most customers, Fenix Power will be providing new cooled and monitored batteries of 24–40 kWh to replace their aging and degraded factory packs much more affordably than Nissan does


Used BMW i3, Used Nissan LEAF, or … ?

2½ years ago, I asked readers here on CleanTechnica to help me out with a tough decision — which electric car to get. We were planning to move to Florida, or back to Florida in my case (I've been living in Poland for nearly 10 years now, and my wife is from here, so she has lived here most of her life).

Tesla takes aim at the high-end luxury segment in a nontraditional manufacturer direct to consumer format

Yesterday, two women engaged me in conversation asking questions about driving an all-electric car (since I drive a Nissan LEAF). They were mystified and then happily surprised when I alleviated a few misconceptions about electric vehicles. Most of the time when I'm in a discussion about EVs, it's because I'm charging and people walk up curious about them. In general, people seem to become much more interested once the facts on driving EVs become clear

Everything you’ve heard (assuming it’s positive) about driving an EV is true… Imagine stepping into a reasonably upscale Japanese vehicle. [&hellip
