Picked up my 14 plate 24KWh Tekna today from Aberdeen and drove it home (about 100 miles). I think I could have managed the drive with one Rapid charge either in Forfar or Dundee but we stopped in Stonehaven, Forfar and Dundee just to be safe due to my range anxiety. My initial thoughts on the leaf are pretty positive, I thought i'd miss the oompf of my old warm hatch (208 GTI) but the leaf seems just as quick off the line - granted the acceleration falls off pretty quick but I didn't really thrash my old car much. The range of the leaf is pretty poor for long Journeys or rather seeing the range fall so quickly from such a low number is disconcerting. My daily commute will be a 42 mile round trip and I have a charger at the office so I should be able to drive as normal without any consideration to the range, I think it will however take a little time to not feel a panic when I see the range as less than 50 miles, in the GTI the range would go from 50 to light on sometimes in just a few miles, the car before I had only about 10 miles to find a petrol station when the light came on but I was only getting 19-21 MPG in that. The leaf seems a very smooth and relaxing drive, it's much more pleasant than my previous cars. The Bose system is much better than the standard stereo in the GTI but not a patch on the Bose system I had in my Mazda 3 MPS. I believe it's a super low power version. It's good enough about on a par with my partners Volvo V40. Rapid charging is very easy, I looked up where they were on the route before hand and swiped my card and I was away, I can't believe it's free fuel too. Bonus I'm not sure if this is just up here in Scotland? I even have a rapid charger next to Sainsburys in my town so when we got back I hooked it up then went shopping for 15 minutes and when we walked back to the car 58% which is great. I take it it's okay to leave the car on a rapid if you are only away for 10-20 min? All in all i'm very happy with it, the car is costing me the same a month as my GTi was but I was also spending £200 a month on petrol all in all a great deal. Think we may attempt a trip off to Ireland at some point once we are a little more confident with the range and modes etc.
