Nissan Leaf doesn't play nice with GE's WattStation
One Nissan dealership in the San Francisco Bay Area sent e-mails to Leaf drivers telling them to not use the WattStation because it may disable the car from being able to be recharged, PlugIn Cars reports. The issue is likely to related to a diode on the car's on-board recharging system, and the Leaf is apparently the only plug-in car affected by this problem.
GE's response, the New York Times reports, is to work with Nissan on a fix. GE, which started selling the home chargers about a year ago, confirmed that no other car models are affected, the Times said. So far, Nissan hasn't announced a policy for Leaf drivers to use or refrain from using GE's WattStations.
