I think the 220 mile Leaf might just be my Tesla M3 reservation killer.

Wail await reviews from the RFD community but it's definitely much improved over the frog predecessor.

Commend Nissan on providing a combo 240/120 EVSE. The thing is, its so bulky at the connector I can see people having some issues in 120v just trying to hang it down and or not fitting in some outdoor plug receptacles. Just seems oddly designed. The 240v plug does not look like a dryer plug.

Finished installing the NEMA 14-50R receptacle in the garage. It was difficult to handle due to the stiffness of the cable but I got it done.

50A breaker: $30
6 meters of AWG 6 wire: $74
Receptacle: $6
Box: $6
Straps: $4
Clamps: $3
Total: $123.00

240V plug is the NEMA 14-50R which I already installed in my garage. Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Here is the 240v plug. Don't know if it'll fit yours? I can't tell.

That's the standard 240v plug so it will fit just fine.

My receptacle will fit Juicebox Pro and Leaf EVSE. And newer dryers

I'm begging you. Give back the $1K to Tesla. Get off the pot, and get in an EV. Much better than all of the talk, just get in that heated seat pal!

I didn't cancel my reservation. By then there will be a few choices but range is probably on the top of my priorities.

I think I have a good enough imagination to know what instant torque and one gearing feels like. :) No need to test drive until requirements are met or I am offered a gift card.

I'm back in the BEV fold unless I go with a used Honda hybrid that does 50 MPG. I can wait and skip the deprecation of a brand spanking new car at the moment.

Dealer said not to expect any delivery until Spring, at the earliest.

Is this what people were expecting? I was under the impression we would have them by Feb at the latest.

I was told middle of January. Personally, later would be better for me as I don't really need the car until August 2018 or just before EV rebate disappears Disappointed But Relieved Face

My dealer went from mid January to late February/early March. I am the first to order at their location and they are one of the largest in the GTA.

Ya I've been getting the same line of information from dealers who still contact me updating me on the Leaf, it seems that the delivery date has changed and coming at a later date than first they first were told or expected. First it was January, now it may be past March or April. Anyway I think that still falls in line with a late Q1 delivery or at worst, start of Q2 delivery.

Your 220 mile comment has lost me, where are you getting that number from? The review says 150 miles......
