Nissan LEAF Updates: Road Test Revealed Nissan LEAF's Strength And Weaknesses; What To Do When The EV Car Fails?
It is irrefutable that the EV technology is slowly dominating Europe's roads and highways. Along that line, speculations of the Nissan LEAF outrunning other EV cars on the road arise. Also, recent news and updates regarding the Nissan LEAF's strength and weakness while undergoing the road test were revealed.
It appears that the Nissan LEAF had to work for its living. The initial ploy was to creep economically through London and then whisper up the M1 at the 60 mph cruising speed recommended for efficiency by other LEAF owners, as relayed by the Chronicle.
Driving cars like the LEAF could be a struggle if the road is taking a downward slope or hilly path. If a downward gradient appears, the best way to manoeuvre the Nissan LEAF is to get edged up to 70 mph and then return to the previous scale before the next upslope comes in plain sight.

Also, it appears that the Nissan LEAF is in need of a recharge after an 80-mile trip. Although the easy to use and accurate Ecotricity electricity "pump" showed of the EV still having 38 percent of power remaining, the figure had risen to 83 percent after a 20-minute hook up, but it then took another 20 minutes for it to crawl from there to 98 percent, which is why it is best not to bother with that last bit, unless there is time to burn, reports the same post.

On a different note, Nissan and its flagship LEAF have been anticipated to dominate Europe's lanes in the next 3 years. To prove the latter, Nissan is celebrating its flagship, and there are 50,000th European-built Nissan LEAF ready to roll off the production line. It is the first time a European carmaker has built 50,000 electric vehicles, alongside the batteries that power them, reports iTech Post.
However, one of the shortcomings and weaknesses of the segment is the charging process. It may be ideal for the city and urban roads, but if one goes out of the shelter zone of chargers, that is where the problem lies. It is given that realistically, the range between charging moments falls to more or less 110 miles.
Although Nissan LEAF has made great achievements in strengthening its EV segments, there are still more miles to overcome. And for the drivers and users of this potential car segment, the EV car does have its mile shortcomings but it is still a promising EV segment.
