Fastest Net Travelling Speed for the 2018 LEAF

Thu Sep 13, 2018 8:07 pm

If a LEAF can charge at 40 - 50 kW, optimal travelling speed to minimize travel duration is pretty much as fast as safety and the cops permit. When charging is capped at e.g. 22 kW the situation changes. The graph below plots the relationship

Keyword here: CAN charge at 40-50Kw

So, if the battery is kept cool!

I live in Utah, so for me even my first QC of the day is capped at 22-27 kW (at least during the summer). Perhaps winter months will result in an improvement in my charge rates, so here is one plus of it getting cooler every day...
