Thought of the Day: Nissan LEAF Telematics Upgrade

Welcome to Thought of the Day! Join Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield as she poses a question for you all to think about and answer.

Today, we’re asking if Nissan’s decision to charge owners of 2011-2014 Nissan LEAF electric cars $199 to upgrade the telematics control module (something we covered on our site earlier today) is a smart move, or if Nissan should be fitting the bill for not thinking far enough into the future — just as Ford will be doing with its Focus EV customers?

We’re keen to hear from LEAF owners, as well as those who don’t own a LEAF, so watch the video above, and leave your thoughts in the Comments below.
