That would be 150 EPA miles in the 2018 LEAF
If you live in a climate with winter roads or strong winds, on some days you may find you have 120 miles of range, perhaps less if you expect to drive in a nicely warm cabin.
Want to have a few kWh left in the battery each day to avoid range anxiety and even faster battery degradation ? Now you have 100 -110 miles range.
Nissan warrants the pack to have at least ~ 63% of new capacity.
Now you are down to ~ 63 - 70 miles range.
For your sake I hope you live in a temperate climate or your workplace or somewhere nearby gives you a charge solution when needed.
