Hello all, I'm Thomas, developer of Outlander PHEVBox Range Extender and also new LeafBox - and also proud Leaf 24kWh owner
As I have finished LeafBox project and final tests are conducted now by various Leaf owners, I have a question if anybody would like to be a beta tester. I still have about 5 prototypes to be sent.
Whole idea is described here: http://vtechtuning.eu/leafbox.html
There is no magic in it. Extra range comes from gliding option, alternative torque management (described in link) and extra regeneration added to D-mode (good for those, who don't have B mode at all).
By the way I have also written reader-flasher for Leaf ECM, so I have analyzed it's maps and did some "Leaf-ludicrous" mode while ECO off, but I think battery suffers from higher current. All in all - I love Leafs and I do a project for them. You can help me.
