A little over a week ago, the EPA released its window sticker and fuel economy ratings for the Nissan LEAF, which showed the car had a MPGe rating of 99, and a expected range of 73 miles.
At the same time, it was also announced that the FTC would also being affixing a sticker that only displayed the estimated range, and that range would be between 96 and 110 miles.
Why would there be two stickers? Why do they confict so much? Well, basically there is a 25 year old Energy Policy and Conservative Act that requires the FTC to do it. (If you want to learn more about that, how it is calculated…and why they let the manufacturer police themselves on getting it, you can click here)
However, the actual sticker was not released, and/or any information that it might hold. So, finding ourselves with far too much time on our hands, we sent out some requests for it. And a few days later, Nissan kindly send us one. Complete with peel and stick window instructions. /wave
