    The paragraph begins 'although unconfirmed by Nissan' and provides a 'prediction' of 340 miles. As you say that would be pretty much cobblers in the real world.

    It seems to have a feature 'encouraging' the use of regent braking. It gives that standard feature on an EV yet another marketing name but it appears they are hanging their hat on maximum use of regen braking by a driver to go the extra 140-160 miles common sense says you need to meet the prediction. Oh but Nissan say it has slippy paint - of course that would do the extra no sweat :rolleyes:

    I agree we should get excited by a range over 150 miles if it does that in the real world. Over 200 and they could have a queue to buy quite quickly. Maybe that regen encouragement is something that really does double the range. That just seems unlikely though :)

    New news on the Leaf certainly merits it's own thread, would you like to start one @gangzoom, or I could move the relevant posts into one?

    Edit: new thread created and posts reverted to pre-hybrid edits :)
