Rubbish Rapidgate 500km Trip Nissan Leaf – No Problem

8/10/2018
More
What’s All the fuss about Rapidgate? I went 500km in one day and rapid charged 3 times and it fitted in perfectly with my personal needs to be fed and watered. Started with 100 percent in the battery and left for Perpignan in France. Charged there for about 20 minutes to get to about 85%. Next destination was Quillan where there is another CHadeMo charger. I also saw there was a Reveo charge point with two Type 2 right next to the CHadeMo. Had a walk around the town while eating ice cream...

Electric Car Charging – The Nissan Leaf in France

7/18/2018
More
Last week I went to Perpignan which is not too far across the border from here in Spain. On the way there I was able to do some electric car charging at a shopping centre just before crossing the border and they gave me plenty of range. I was able to do a scenic drive to a natural beauty spot called Gorges de la Fou. One of my reasons to go to Perpignan was to try and get some charge into the car. I knew I would have just enough to get me back home again, but I wanted to have extra as a...

Pro Pilot Assist problems – Faulty Radar Sensor

6/6/2018
More
On my day off I decided the first thing to do was to wash Red Rosie the 2018 Nissan Leaf. I’ll talk about the Pro Pilot Assist problems shortly. A bird had used Rosie for target practice and had scored a bull’s-eye. There were also loads of marks on it from the rain from the day before. I have one of those small pressure washers just right for washing cars. I start with an extra adapter to spray soap all over the car first of all. It’s easy to go around then with some special washing mitts...

EV20Q Nissan Leaf Update

5/28/2018
More
We are on the racetrack coming round the final bend and I can see the winning line ahead of me. I was hoping to collect my Nissan Leaf from the dealers today and it doesn’t seem to be happening. The salesman rang me this morning looking for more paperwork. I was able to send him what was required within 30 minutes. Then there was nothing from him from lunchtime until about 5 o’clock. It was obvious at this stage I wasn’t going to get my car today. The redtape in Spain is a complete...

EV20Q 14 Duncan – Hyundai Ioniq Electric driver

5/20/2018
More
When Duncan was living in London he didn’t need to have a car at all. He tells me he went for about 15 years with not having a car and using public transport. With moving to the north of England and needing to change his method of transport he got a Nissan Leaf. Duncan was happy enough with the Nissan Leaf, but when the lease finished he had to move on to something else. He had the good fortune to find a second hand Hyundai Ioniq electric and it’s working out well for him so far. He had to...

Podcast number 8 EV20Q – Rapidgate

4/9/2018
More
Rapidgate and Nissan Leaf buying decisions Since I made my last video where I may have mentioned Rapidgate I went go to the Hyundai garage to check out the Ioniq. I also sat inside a Hyundai Kona. I was impressed with the Ioniq with its level of trim generally of high quality inside the car. I didn’t like the layout and finish of the dashboard as there was some shiny silver on the steering wheel which looked very cheap. I didn’t get the warm and fuzzy feeling I got from sitting inside the...

EV20Q Podcast 7 Have a BEV Mate

3/31/2018
More
George is a private hire / taxi driver in the south of England – Have a BEV Mate. So I thought it was going to be very interesting talking to a professional driver who drives at least a hundred miles everyday each week. It has to be good business sense to buy a car which will need very little servicing. No need to change oil and filters or replace any of the many moving parts found in an ICE car which could wear out and go wrong. I did ask George what was his favourite feature of the...

EV20Q Podcast 006 – Halldor Sigurdsson

3/23/2018
More
Halldor Sigurdsson has owned four Nissan Leaf cars at this stage. He’s managed to get his hands on the latest version of the car. He is keen to find out how you use the E-pedal for getting some fun driving round the bends. He tells me he has two sets of wheels for the car. He runs with the 16 inch wheels and winter tyres for part of the year and switches over to 17 inch tyres when the weather gets better. I think it’s true that you’ll get more miles per kilowatt/hour by using 16 inch...

More 2018 Nissan Leaf In this podcast I’m talking to James who lives in Newcastle and the North of England and in Scotland when he is there for work. I met James through the YouTube channel in which he talks about his experiences with the 2018 Nissan Leaf. James, like myself loves to get into the nitty-gritty of the actual driving and usage of electric vehicles. It’s not enough to watch a video review of a vehicle with just the basic information and not enough detail. When a reviewer says...

Talking to Mike Ward about EV’s and the Nissan Leaf Mike is in the fortunate position of having three electric cars in the family. Indeed, extra fortunate that it is three Nissan Leaf vehicles parked on his front drive. He runs the Facebook group ‘I Spotted a Nissan Leaf’ which is where you can send a photo or just make a post to say you have seen a Nissan leaf in the wild. It’s a bit like ‘EV Bingo’ for just one make and model of car. It’s all a bit of fun really! A New Nissan Leaf Is...
