USA: Road Tripping 1,300 Miles In My Nissan LEAF

In August and September of 2013, Trish and I took a road trip in one of our 100% electric Nissan LEAFs. We planned out a trip that would take us up to 1,500 miles, which is quite a distance considering the EPA rated range of our cars is 73 miles. But we were confident it could be done; and it turned out we were right.

As enthusiastic owners of two electric cars, we wanted to show that it was actually possible to go on a long-distance trip with one. In addition, personally, we hadn’t spent much time in our neighboring state of Oregon, so we thought it would be fun to check out a lot of the cities and towns that we could easily access with our car. This turned out to be a lot of Oregon, since their EV charging infrastructure is the best in the country.

Our intention was definitely not to see how fast this route could be driven. We wanted to see the sights, meet some of the people, and enjoy ourselves as much as possible.
