... marketing brochure claimed the car could do 235 miles on a single charge. But having bought the car, he found the range was actually 155 miles ... ... When journalists from What Car? tested the new Leaf, they found a "real world" range of just 108 miles ... ... wrote to Nissan to complain, he was told that rapid charging was only intended for use once in a journey - something many buyers may be unaware of ... .... Nissan said the original claim of 235 miles was correct under an official means of measurement known as the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). However, as carmakers have moved to a different measure - known as the Worldwide harmonised Light vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) - the range is now officially 168 miles. Mr Dunsmore advised any upset customers to get in contact: "Come and speak to us if there's anything you're not happy with." Meanwhile, a number of customers have cancelled their orders... Nissan 'misled' buyers of electric cars pretty bad really, and defintiely not the way to encourage EV adoption. Astonishing difference between NEDC and WLTP in this instance. Maybe this is an example of how manufacturers game the results for a standard (NEDC) and can get caught out if the standard evolve rapidaly (WLTP). Not lying and cheating on the scale of VW but not going to win them any firends. Can it be that Tesla are putting too much pressure on the competition?
