Re: Extending range of 24kWh Leaf with LeafBox

Depending on driving conditions and terrain, regen typically increases an EV's total range by 10-40%, that's probably what he means. And yes it should be 90% efficient in recovering energy (when it can, regen doesn't work under a certain speed or if the driver brakes hard enough to use the brake discs). Neither one has any effect on one-pedal driving if implemented properly. The Leaf does one-pedal just fine until 4mph when the creep comes on (for no reason arrgggggg I hate it).


I got my Leaf Box and made a video:

I'd be interested to test a ludicrous mode while accelerator depressed to 100%. Can this be accomplished? Can we get more HP/Torque on-demand?

It wasn't really clear to me from what I read, would it be possible to get more regen back using LeafBox with a degraded battery? My battery is severely degraded (5 bars total, 7 lost) and I only get one regen bubble (about 4.5kW is the most I've seen) between 15-35mph and SOC around half or less.
