"people are waiting for a longer-range Nissan LEAF (or a much longer-range LEAF), a longer-range BMW i3, and the 200-mile Chevy Bolt (hitting the market ~1 year from now), and this has been killing sales of the Nissan LEAF, BMW i3, and nearly every other 100% electric model." This is absolutely true for me. The lease ended on my LEAF and I need more range for the NY winter weather. The LEAF's range couldn't make the round trip commute in the cold; it lost between 20-30% of its range when the temps dipped into the mid 30sF. There are cars I'm considering, but none (a Tesla I can't afford) quite hit the range threshold I need. It doesn't help that the NY/NJ area doesn't have the EV availability of the West Coast. I'm paralyzed at the decision point of whether to buy now and trade up in 12 months or hold out for the longer range.
