USA: Living with the Leaf, Part 2: Installing the charger Living with the Leaf, Part 2: Installing the charger

There’s often a sense of sticker shock when a single option pushes past the $2,000 mark. Perhaps that’s why auto makers like to dress up these big features as option “packages,” to make it seem like you’re getting more than just a rear DVD player or pricey GPS system. With plug-in electric vehicles, ordering up a $2,000+ charger (installed) for your garage is almost mandatory in pure battery electric vehicles, and a popular option for Volt buyers.

Having bought a regular gas-powered, factory-fresh car in the past, and our new Nissan Leaf recently, I can honestly say that these processes contrasted almost as much as the vehicle’s powertrains. The home inspection needed before installing a charger, the scheduling and installation of the EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment), and the subsequent near-daily interaction with this ionic appliance in your garage is one of the biggest differences of the whole EV experience.
