Our LEAF was delivered on 31st of august 2011 (after a looooong wait 😉 ). Since then it has become the family car of preference, and our prius stays at home at the weekend! The range has not been a problem so far, even on a number of weekends away in the mountains, including some trips to the ski stations (with snow-chains!). Finding charging points on our longer journeys has not been difficult; people are interested in the electric car, and very willing to help out.
But the LEAF is not our first electric car.
The 3 years before getting the LEAF, the daily runner was a 1998 all electric Citroen Saxo. Seen here at the very top of the highest road in Europe (col de la Bonette – 2802 m), during the 2010 Traversee des Alpes.
