Review

There are some things prospective buyers need to know. The range is overly optimistic--I am a smooth--non-hot-shot driver--I get about 120 miles on a charge--not 150. Be wary of planning a trip that involves hills--the incline eats energy. The car is very comfortable and the interior--while not a wow factor is well above average. The problem? NISSAN dealerships and support. After only 2 weeks the pro-pilot assist went out, and the pedestrian braking never worked. One dealer had it 3 days saying they were waiting for Nissan corporate to look at it--but couldn't say when that would be. I returned it to the dealer where I purchased it and have been told it will be 7 business days to get a new sensor that "might" fix it. I called Nissan EV support--the first complaint never got logged--the second one did, and at least they have agreed to reimburse gas. I will be without my new car for at least 2 weeks because of weekends and a holiday not included in the business day estimate. So, maybe when I get it back if it works as it's supposed to I will like it...but at this point I wish I had put those dollars elsewhere. I paid cash

Review

Electric car driver since December 2012. This is my 3rd leased/purchase ev. Great value, I got the quick charged option and heated seats/ steering wheel out the door for $22K. I don’t need to charge it up every day, but when I do the guess o meter ranges from 160 -187 so far. I have owned or lease the vehicle for about 1.5 months and have around 1300 miles on the clock. You will need a 220/240 charger to get the most out of the vehicle. Charges at 6.6 kwt/ hour ~ 22 miles of charge per hour from a 240 dedicated charger. I have only fast charged it at two Nissan dealerships twice. It put in around 15 kwatts in about 30 mins about 50 miles of driving. Hoping to see 200 miles on the range meter this summer!!
