Maybe the better question then is who has gone the longest without losing a bar? If time is more of a factor than use.

It would be helpful to get everyone here to contribute their experience to the Plug In America Leaf owner survey.

https://survey.pluginamerica.org/leaf/survey.php

Getting more current data will allow us to continue studying important issues like battery longevity, how driving and charging practices affect battery performance, how climate impacts batteries and whether battery chemistry and design are improving.

By contributing to the survey and updating periodically, you'll be able to view your car's history and compare it to other vehicles in the survey via charts.

https://survey.pluginamerica.org/leaf/charts.php?vid=1

All of the survey data is publicly available (except for the personal info fields: name, email and VIN sequence number), so anyone can use the data set to study EV ownership.

Slight update from me. Mine just dropped below magical 90% mark, both, SOH and Hx (weather is hot, number does update, at last).
So... almost 4th birthday, 72 000 miles, 116 000km and 10% capacity. I expect I'll lose first bar at around... 100 000 miles.
Maybe at the end of next summer.
I expect SOH and Hx values to rise again in the fall when temps drop. They always do. Then they freeze for the whole winter :mrgreen:

Ideal battery temperature is UP TO 5 BARS. Anything higher than that accelerates everything. I have 6 bars for 2-3 months per year.


PS: even though numbers say I lost 10% of range, i don't feel that. It feels more like 5-8%. I can still do 110km trip on highway, 68 miles,
without recharge.
Short range EVs <30kWh -- Medium range: 30-60kWh -- Long range: >60kWh
Charging: Trickle <3kW -- Normal 3-22kW -- Fast 50-100kW -- Supercharging >100kW
