    Glad to see the range increase. At 150 miles spec, maybe more like 130 IRL, there's now enough range for even a fairly long commute plus running an errand or two on the way home. Still not enough for weekend trips, though, without very careful planning for recharging.

    I'm curious what real-world improvements the power increase delivers. When I drove a Leaf as a dealer loaner this summer I was frustrated with the car's go-slow nature. Even flooring the pedal couldn't spur it past leisurely acceleration. And that was just around town. After that I was afraid to take it on the interstate with short entrance ramps.
