I’ve made a number of videos about our Nissan Leaf (and now our Tesla Model 3) and EVs in general over the years. Some of you may not have found my YouTube channel before, so I thought I’d put a dedicated page to list them all.
“Roof rack consumption test” – shortly after installing the roof rack, I wanted to see the impact it would have on consumption (i.e. energy consumed per km, or Wh/km). I ran a series of controlled tests on New Year’s day without the rack, with the rack only installed, and with the rack + a ski box installed. Runs about 20 mins.
“Roof rack!” – our roof rack from Tesla arrived; I made a video of the installation process, plus my initial thoughts on the rack. Runs 32 minutes, includes hyperlinks in the “show more” description that jump to topics of interest.
Driving in winter up to Whitewater Ski Resort: I cover a number of topics about winter driving in an EV in general on the scenic drive up to Whitewater. Runs about 21 mins with hyperlinks in the “show more” description that jump to topics of interest.
An intro to EVs and the Leaf: on my morning commute (from Nelson to Trail), I cover quite a few topics ranging from why I bought an EV, benefits of EVs, heating the car, regen and so on.
Fast charging: I demonstrate how to use a fast charger and include a chart showing the charge profile for my Nissan Leaf. Runs about 12 mins.
Kootenay EVenture – Crawford Bay: my family drives along the northshore of Kootenay Lake to take the longest free ferry in BC across the lake to visit the artisans in Crawford Bay and the beach in Riondel for the day. I contemplate what the ferry trip would be like on an electric version! Lots of great scenery of the area. Runs about 10 mins.
Kootenay EVenture – Kaslo/New Denver circle tour: come along with us again as we travel north along Kootenay Lake to the cute towns of Kaslo and New Denver. We stop to tour the SS Moyie & charge our car at a campground in Kaslo, go for a hike through an old growth forest near Retallack, and then visit the Nikkei Internment Centre & the beach in New Denver. More great scenery of the area. Runs about 15 mins with hyperlinks in the “show more” description that jump to topics of interest.
