This video is a documentary about how our Nissan Leaf battery ran out and how we handled it. This was the first time after owning the Nissan Leaf for a year that it happened. We have don’t a lot of things wrong in this video, so if you want to buy a Nissan leaf or an electric car this is good to watch.
The biggest mistake that we made was that when the turtle comes on on the screen you need to stop the car. Here is why: The Nissan lead will activate the handbrakes somehow and it will not have enough electricity in the battery to release the breaks.
If we stop when the turtle comes on we could have pushed the car to a neighbours garage and just recharge the batteries a little bit and all would have been fine.
Now the battery was so flat that when the tower came he had to charge the batteries for like 10 min just to have enough electricity to release the handbrakes and that the car could be towed.
Luckily it is completely covered in the Nissan Leaf insurance that they tow the car if the battery runs flat. I believe that it is in any electric cars insurance that they tow the car free of charge when you run out.
This is very good to know if you are planning on buying an all electric car or an EV.
I want to stress that we are extremely happy with our Nissan Leaf and that this whole situation could have been avoided if I just drive in Eco mode or am just a bit more careful with the battery. We had full AC and heating on and so on.
As always thanks for watching. Let me know if the comments what you thought. Like and if you haven’t pls pls pls subscribe.
