Wanted: Leaf ownership experience articles for EV News

Post by Bryce » Fri, 03 Aug 2018, 11:56

Hi all – Bryce (editor of EV News, our national newsletter) here.

Letting you know that I am putting together a companion lift-out for the Oct-Dec edition (the Expo edition) of EV News.

The lift-out will be called EV Buyers Guide’, and (hopefully) will include everything you need to know to choose, buy, charge and look after an EV.

It will include a summary of all the BEVs and PHEVs currently on the market in Australia. I am also hoping to be able to intersperse the summaries with owner reviews. (Given we are the AEVA, this is what we best offer to the EV buying public!)

AND, this is where you – the owners on this forum - come in. ;-)

I am looking for articles following the following template on your Leaf ownership experience:
• Note: max 750 words (plus a pic-optional)
• Why you chose a Leaf
• Your option choices
• Your buying experience as it relates relating to dealer EV knowledge & time taken for delivery (if applicable - given you may have bought it privately etc!)
• Your likes about it since taking ownership
• Any niggles you may be finding with the car (if any)
• Your EVSE installation experience/if you installed one, and why
• Your actual EV range vs the window sticker/manufacturer stated ones
• Would you recommend it to someone else?
• Deadline: September 1st

If you’re interested in supplying such an article, please email me at bryceg@zoho.com

Many thanks

Thanks for the reminder Bryce! Christopher mentioned this at our last Tas meeting but I hadn't got around to starting it.

Will you be having a single example of each vehicle? Or is it the more the merrier? (Just thinking there will no doubt be quite a few Leaf reviews!) I'm guessing you want multiple examples - since different people with the same car will have very different experiences - location, family size, home situation, etc.

Hi there - depends on space and how many I get! Intending to squeeze them all (!!??) in, unless I get buried in the rush - in which case I'll save a couple for later editions of EV News.

Cheers
