Description

ATTN : I'm out of town from July 9th to July 25th. The car is available during that time but only for someone who wants it for the whole period (i.e. pick up before July 9th and return it after July 26th). Note : if you are planning on driving a long distance, this is probably not the car for you. On the highway, under good conditions, the range is probably about 125km. You could drive from Ottawa to Montreal or to Kingston (and would need to charge halfway) but I wouldn't recommend it for any further and it's certainly much more suitable for local driving only. - Fully electric car - SiriusXM satellite radio - Navigation - Backup camera Roughly 125-150 kms of range per charge (depending on the speed) except in the winter (range is greatly affected by the temperature so can drop to as low as around 75 kms in -25C). Approximately $1 per 100km to charge. Includes charge cable for 120V (very slow - probably 18+ hours to fully charge). Will work with any J1772 charging stations (many hotels and stores have them - often at no charge. The ones that charge are usually $1/hr or less) (fully charge in 3-4 hrs at 240V). Will also work with CHAdeMO quick charge (about 80% charge (100-120 km) in about 30-40 minutes) but most CHAdeMO stations are not free (In Ontario, it's usually $16-20/hr. In Quebec, it's probably it's usually around $12/hr). Look at PlugShare.com for list of public J1772 locations or CHAdeMO quick charge stations.

Faqs

  • How far can you drive before having to recharge?

    It depends a bit on the temperature and the speed but in general you can do about 120-150 kms on a charge.

  • Where can you charge?

    There are basically 3 ways to charge: 1) using the provided charger in a 120V plug (L1). This is the slowest method and probably takes 16+ hours to charge the battery completely from empty. 2) using a public / private 240V plug (L2). These are available at numerous public places. Many are free and if not, it's usually $1/hr or less. It takes about 4 hours to charge the battery completely from empty. 3) using public DC-fast charger (or DCFC) (CHAdeMO plug) chargers (L3). These are available at select locations but my less common than L2. Cost is usually around $16-$20/hr in Ontario and around $12/hr in Quebec. It typically takes 30-40 minute to charge from empty to 80% (above 80%, the rate of charge slows significantly). Also as the battery temperature goes up (e.g. if you do multiple DCFC in a day). the rate of charge will slow. You can't really do more than 3 DCFC per day as the battery will likely be too warm by then and your charging rate will be significantly reduced.

  • How can I find public charging stations?

    The best website / app is "PlugShare" (www.plugshare.com). You can filter the connectors (J1772 for L2 or CHAdeMO for L3). You can also filter by price (e.g. no charge only). Another useful website / app is "ABetterRoutePlanner" (www.abetterrouteplanner.com). This website / app, suggests a route and stopping points between your departure point and your destination. To use it, you would select this model (2016 Nissan LEAF 30kWh) and then it estimates and suggests a trip.

  • Do I need to recharge before returning the car?

    No, to be safe, you should try to give yourself about 10% buffer to get the car my house but I can charge it from home so I don't mind if it's down to 1% when you return it.

  • What happens if I run at out charge?

    Unlike a gasoline car, you can't just get someone to bring you extra source of power so if you run out of charge, you will have to get towed. The car does warn you when you get to about 20% charge remaining and when you get to about 1-3%, you'll get a more severe warning (turtle logo lights up on the dash) and the car's power output will be severely limited (max speed around 40 km/h) and at this point, you might have 2-3 km remaining to get to a charging station (I've never reached that point).

Michel was very kind and very helpful. The car was good. He provided us a lot of information about how using an electric car and helped us to locate electric stations for our trip. Thanks again Michel
