Nissan discovered how to extend its electric car offer to the unspoiled consumer group.

These buyers may need some educational treatment, which is encapsulated in the new series “Foolproof Guide To Electric Driving“.

The first episode is already on:

How do you charge an electric car?

Have your charging questions answered in THE FOOLPROOF GUIDE TO ELECTRIC DRIVING. This time we explore the truth about charging – like how to do it, how long it takes and how far you can go on one charge.

Charging a Nissan LEAF is simple. Plug it in at home, or on the go..
Rapid chargers are installed at most motorway services, which provide 80% of a full charge in approximately 30 minutes.”

Note:  As this spot is intended for European audiences, range ratings for the LEAF are a touch optimistic on the NEDC scale at 155 miles.  The more realistic EPA ratings for the 2016 LEAF still stand at 107 miles (172 km).

155 miles on 30 kWh? Wasn’t the 24 kWh supposed to go 100 miles? Perhaps not the USA measurement standard?

155 miles, in a leaf? He’s balmy. Gone off his trolley. ‘E’s a loony!

Even Nissan only claimed a 100 mile electric range, and the real-world range is less.

Drove my 2011 Leaf (rated at 73mi US) 100 miles when it was new, so it’s possible. It’s the driver not the car. Of course most people aren’t willing to play the range game that hard.

Ah…British humour…

speaking of which, this ad reminds one that:

‘Nothing is foolproof for a sufficiently talented fool.’

“If you make something idiot proof, they’ll just make a better idiot.”

Nissan’s videos used to be dead serious. Then they went to the funny (gasoline powered shavers, etc), and now they’re rather innane.

But if it really sells cars to Brits, then who am I to criticize?
