the Family Grimstedt live in a charming old villa in the centre of Södertälje. Linda works in Stockholm and Magnus in Nyköping, sweden. With the children will be retrieved and submitted, it becomes a difficult puzzle to add.
" We are vardagsklimatmedvetna. We threw out the oil-fired boiler when we bought the house, we recycle clothing, we try in various ways to keep down our carbon footprint, " says Linda and Magnus over coffee in the spacious kitchen.
Previously, there were two cars in the yard, a Honda CR-V and a small Toyota Aygo. Magnus hovered with the honda because he had longer to run and Wrap with Aygon.
Now is Aygon sold and pendlingsresorna to Nyköping, sweden, approximately 15 miles per day, made with Leafen.
Magnus is the closest fascinated by how the car's qualities influenced him as a driver.
– running in a completely different way. Calmer, more relaxed and never more than 110 km/h on the motorway, " he says.
– We had talked about electric cars before and we were curious about the technology. When we began to figure on what a replacement would cost was the decision easier. Basically, we have changed the petrol costs that we had for the honda against what we amorterar on the Leafen, " says Linda.
" It fell away in order to rent the battery. The nearest option was the Hyundai Ioniq, but it ended up with the Leaf. We are very pleased. The car is stylish and it is so comfortable to ride in.
" Yes, but it quickly turned out that it was not an option for us. With a mileage of 4,000 miles per year, it would be far too expensive.
Magnus could easily do the commute without having to recharge in Nyköping, but takes every opportunity to charge extra to cope with call-outs of the job at Sörmlands News. Any real räckviddsångest he has not known, but admits that he's looking at the battery gauge.Magnus and Linda Grimstedt are satisfied with their switching to the electric car. Photo: Lasse Swärd
"It feels a bit like the glass is half empty when the capacity falls below 50%, you begin to plan ahead, how far I have to go," he says.
when we get a lot more electric cars in the traffic and it becomes, for example, the winter holidays. How should you then be able to charge their electric car during the långkörningen. I see a clear risk of bottlenecks, " he says.
– We have made our first longer trip and it went well. We drove to the Borläge and stopped in Enköping for that quick top up and eat lunch. The post was that the tour was free, " says Linda.
the Next step may be to do away with the honda, as Linda in the day, the commute to the job.
– I would prefer to take the pendulum, but unfortunately it's time consuming. With the retrieval of the children, and the full working hours, I did not get it together in my previous job, but now I have changed jobs and got a bit of free working hours, so we'll see how I do, " says Linda.
" We do not really need the honda to pull the trailer, we have the boat, and for longer vinterresor and the like. But we have engaged neighbors. They are interested in our Leaf and driving electric. We should be able to form a carpool, maybe find a common behaviour that we can share. It would be good, " says Linda.
the Question seems to pounce on them a little bit. They look at each other and respond in broadly the same time ”No, it would feel strange. You will be happy each time you drive Leafen, it is so different”.
the Only fly in the beaker is the app, as Linda demonstrates, or rather trying to demonstrate – it just hangs, she says, and that is exactly what it does now also.
Hopeless, so this has apparently been in several years, according to the outraged post on a group on Facebook. How hard can it be for Nissan to get the app to work, " she says.
Alexandra Österplan, head of corporate communications at Nissan, in Sweden, confirms the problems.
" Yes, we are aware of it. Nissan Europe has a team working full time with this in order to be able to offer all Leafkunder an updated app with improved service and availability, " she says.
