Close to 50 miles. Call it 45.
Is my math wrong or are you saying that the 30kWh Leafs actual put out 34kWh of energy? (50/1.5=33.33333)
That would be awesome if it were true!
The way I see it a 24kWh Leaf only puts out 21kWh when brand new or 87.5%. So a 30kWh Leaf must put out about the same or (30 x 87.5%) 26.25kWh. Now take that and multiply it by 1.5 miles per kWh and you get 39.4 miles until dead, on the side of the road.
I think that the 30kwh Leaf only reserves the same amount (2 kwh) as the 24, but I don't know that. So I guess 40-42 miles. Don't you get more than 1.5 m/kwh when traveling longer distances?
