See older review I posted from Sep. 2015.
So, now , after 38 months, this car is still great.
Still cost about 2 cents/km. to drive. Less if you find some free charging.
Also, since this model has the fast DC charging and more fast chargers everyday, you can travel farther with only a little time lost stopping to charge.
I am in London, On and travel to Stratford on a regular basis.
I also got to Toronto, which is out of the cars normal range.
I have the 24 KW/hr battery. the 2016 got a 30 KW/hr battery increasing the range 27%. The 2018 will be much better.
Even with this range, I can go to Toronto (about 200 kms.). I simply stop for 10-12 minutes to get my charge up to about 80%+. I stop where the charger is at a Starbucks, use the washroom, get a coffee and off I go. The fast charger in Milton charges 28 cents a minute.
Repairs are next to nothing. In the 38 months I have had the car, I have replaced the cabin air filter and all wiper blades. One brake fluid flush and yearly brake cleaning and lube.
My wife loves this car and does not want to see it go back to the dealer. With the new 2018 coming next year, Nissan has let me plus other extend the lease period up to a year with 3 months free.
This has been perfect for us. We got to keep this car longer until the newer, longer range cars get here, besides the Chevy Bolt EV and the Tesla 3.
For most folks, any of these will work as the second car, as most now have 200 kms + range.
The Bolt EV is almost 400 kms and the Tesla3 is 500 kms with the larger battery.
2018 should be the year we have been waiting for. More longer range models and more cars coming available that year or soon after.
While the nay-sayers will balk at the charging on longer trips, most trips fit within in the range of the cars that are out there now. Forget standing in the rain filling a gas car or waiting for an open pump. I pull into the garage at home, plug in and go inside.
