Personal Experiences with Other Electric Cars

For pictures see photos of electric cars from the mobility day in Kempten 2019.

Tesla Model S and Model 3

In the end of December 2018, the chance arose to take seat in a Model S and Model 3 at the Tesla store in Hamburg. Of course, both are very nice cars of the higher price category, about which in many other places much is reported. The following remarkable fact, which may be considered before acquisition, attracted our attention:
Model 3 seems to be very low. Older and less flexible people could have problems when getting in and even more when getting out. The Model S in contrast seems to have the normal floor height of a limousine.

Nissan Leaf

We used Uber for the first time in May 2018 in Lisbon. When first using the app, the option to choose an electric car - for the same price - attracted our attention. Which we did. A Nissan Leaf arrived and so we were passanger in an electric car for the first time. The ride through the moderat city traffic of Lisbon was more calm than in a combustion car. The constant driving without gears avoids the uneasyness of shifting. Watching the in parts alien, but easy to understand displays in the car was interesting. Between the start and the target in seven kilometers distance, the battery state of charge dropped a few percent.
On two further trips in the city, two other Nissan Leaf came. All gave a good riding experience, there is nothing negative to say.
