News: PLUG IN ADVENTURES COMPLETES NORTH COAST 500 – A 516-MILE JOURNEY AROUND THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS IN THE NEW LEAF 30KWH

One of the issues that MotorMartin has regarding Electric Vehicles (EV) is highlighted in https://motormartin.com/2016/04/24/mitsubishi-outlander-phev-are-friends-electric/ and yet here, a story has arrived where ‘range anxiety’ is not a phrase that’s been heard of before. MotorMartin certainly admires those who are at the front of the queue when new technology is released, especially when the customer is essentially an extended test driver. But the Nissan LEAF? A car so alien and different when first released in 2011 that it’s only now, in 2016, becoming a slightly more regular site charging at the services up and down the Country. And now, news … Continue reading News: PLUG IN ADVENTURES COMPLETES NORTH COAST 500 – A 516-MILE JOURNEY AROUND THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS IN THE NEW LEAF 30KWH
