Electric cars can't cut UK carbon emissions while only the wealthy can afford to own one

Re: A bit out of date?

Commuted with a Leaf for 7 years in Canada. Leaf *always* starts, no matter how cold. Low centre of gravity and winter tyres and it drives securely in snow/ice. You are wearing boots, mitts and a coat at -25 already, yes? You'll be fine. Only issue is clearing the fog, so I have a 200W 12V dash fan. Japan didn't believe heat was needed, so software prevents it from being operational below a 18.5C set-point sadly. When it is -25C, enough heat to clear the windows is -20C oops.

'Plane Hacker' Roberts: I put a network sniffer on my truck to see what it was sharing. Holy crap!


Re: So... who pays for the 3G/4G data connection?

"The vehicle is equipped with a “pop up” screen on the vehicle navigation system that will ask for your consent to this data transfer"

On an older leaf, it is not necessary to either agree or dissagree. Simply ignore the "pop-up" and press the key of the function you want, such as map, menu, or radio. Simple. Sadly, there is no way to disable the pop-up either, with a permanent "yes" or "no". Designed by a lawyer, methinks.
