As I've mentioned elsewhere on this board, I just purchased a 2018 Leaf SV. So I'm starting this thread to share my experiences, field questions, and generally try to help anyone in the market for an EV who is considering a Leaf. Currently, we have almost no miles on Kobi. We bought it two days ago and had to leave town literally within hours of getting the car into our garage. The roughly 10 miles from the dealership to our house was enjoyable and uneventful; I hope to have much more to say about it shortly. Kobi is "Super Black"; the dealer only had one SV in that color and one in pearl white. They got a pair of silver SLs the day we picked up ours, but that didn't matter, as the SV trim plus the cold weather package (heated seats, heated steering wheel, and hybrid heating system) was a very good match for us. As for the name... "Kobi" is short for "Kobayashi Maru", the unsolvable training exercise from the Star Trek fictional universe. My wife and I came up with this name for the car because of the difficulty we had in navigating the car market this time, and especially our frustration with the limited and sometimes odd (to our eyes) choices offered by car makers. I will add some more thoughts shortly, but everyone here, please feel free to ask questions.
