This is old, but I didn't see it here. Please merge if possible. Nissan Says Long-Range EV Unnecessary Data backs up what EV advocates have been claiming all along: 1) Typical Leaf driver averages 37 miles/day 2) Early concerns that Leaf owners might prepare to leave for work in the morning only to find their vehicles still charging have proven unfounded, 3) Fear of running out of electricity while driving an EV seems to stem from motorists not really appreciating the amount of driving they do 4) In a household where one gas-powered vehicle and one electric vehicle exist, the gas-burner often becomes the secondary vehicle. 5) 90 percent of charging Leaf owners are doing at home. What's not funny is that the last 2 conclusions were surprising to Nissan. The article does have speculation that "the beefier optional battery packs Tesla will offer would be overkill for the majority of American motorists."
