It's a conundrum - a $37,000 car (minus the tax credit and rebate) that's only 5 years old, and we're looking at having to sell it for what? $2,000 if we're lucky? Who would want such a car? We wish we could keep it, but we simply don't have room, and we can't add on to the carport - and besides it would a constant shuffle of cars parked behind each other.

Hmmm...maybe we could donate it to NPR...

If it is only 5 years old, does it still qualify for the capacity warranty? You might be able to get a new battery in it and then the range will jump back up, as will the value.

2014 Leaf, 107 500km with 2-3% capacity drop. Range from 100% down to turtle:
Exactly 100km with nippy 60%highway + 40%city and warm cabin, outside down to -5*C.
If I try to go slower, I can get 110km. In summer and spirited driving: up to 120km.

I've had these range numbers for 4 summers and 4 winters. Extremely boring degradation.
Short range EVs <30kWh -- Medium range: 30-60kWh -- Long range: >60kWh
Charging: Trickle <3kW -- Normal 3-22kW -- Fast 50-100kW -- Supercharging >100kW

Resetting the battery means the Columb counter that is used to estimate the range. The BMS has a learning algorithm that compares that actual range to the expected and updates the estimates accordingly so that it more accurately represents the actual battery capacity. Resetting it did nothing but put it back to the factory setting when new. A few driving cycles and you will be back to where you were. By now you should know that, WLegro.
