    I bought this 2015 leaf at auction and imported it to Canada. It rolls with the exception of the front pax wheel and will need to be trailered or parted out.

    We have a beautiful Dutch Barge that we would like to convert from Smelly Diesel to Electric bliss, the marine conversion for a 57 Kw/h 65 W Motor System is running into 200k, and the useage of this barge actually would be very occasional, so we are thinking that a second hand EV battery...
