Re: 30 kwh leaf - what's it worth?

Which actually makes more than a little sense. There is no difference in the battery chemistry of the 24kWh and 30kWh packs, so the claims of more rapid degradation in the 30kWh packs was always hard to understand. (shows one more time that general consensus is only useful when it has some rational basis)

The apparent loss of range that has been experienced by drivers of the 30kwh packs means that either the packs have substantial unused capacity left when the BMS reports Low Battery and Very Low Battery, or that Nissan is not telling the truth.

And, LB, we can easily guess which of those two alternatives you believe. Fortunately, this is not a faith-based issue. Either 30 kWh vehicles will continue to run normally until they reach their new (reprogramed) VLB warning or they will not. And there is no doubt that owners will report which happens.
