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.
