I drive the LEAF 40 miles a day so the 10 kWh I need costs me around $1.50/day, $45/mo on "gas"When I got the 24kWh model in late 2015 I knew the 30kWh was coming the next model year, for like $5000 more, didn't figure it was worth it, and I was right.The 2018 Leaf will have 40kWh for the same base price I paid for 24kWh -- the extra 16kWh -- ~50 miles at highway speeds -- eliminates the 'do-or-die' nature of charger availability when travelling intercity somewhat, but chargers are still too spotty and crowded for 40kWh to be enough.2019 Leaf will have 60kWh option apparently, and that's about right for intercity. In town, 24kWh is plenty.
where is that obligatory #fuckcalifornia comment?
