Fascinating project using a conversion kit to up battery size of a 2011 Nissan Leaf from 24 to 40kWh with a big range increase
While the original batteries are still fine a range boost means these reliable older EVs could attract more owners. Upgrade cost around £9k @cleevelyev

Our wheels for the next few weeks will be this 24kWh (now converted to 40kWh's) @NissanUK Leaf. Great range showing, can't wait. We managed to convert this in under 3 hours @cleevelyev 👌🏻

Good news. While not dead diesel share is falling across Europe & is back below the levels when Blair Brown in UK & EU generally pushed the “dash for diesel”
Our own calculations suggest it increased not decreased CO2

#Cleantech is in.. while #bigOil is now small oil!
#Tesla joins the S&P in December & its current market cap values it as the 8th biggest company on the index
& big oil which used to top the index & only dropped out of top 10 in 2019?
Have a look!

Gov. Larry Hogan (R) on Trump refusing to concede: "We are beginning to look like we are a banana republic. It's time for them to stop the nonsense. It just gets more bizarre every single day and, frankly, I'm embarrassed that more people in the party aren't speaking up."
