Having said that, I've continued to charge to 100% every morning (timer set to finish right as I leave) and my capacity has only dropped 5% over 18 months and 62,000 km. Whatever they did for the 2014s (2013s?) obviously has helped over the 2011/2012s so it isn't as much of an issue with respect to degradation.
However, I still wish I had the feature for my originally posted reason (often charging in a mountain town then descending 2,000ft+). It would also be convenient for weekends when I don't want to charge the car full and leave it sitting there for days.
Wow! It's great to see you have gotten such good use of your car to get 62K Km in less than 2 years! I have also heard that some have been using the Leaf as a cab, and have over 100K miles with no degradation of battery! Keep up the good work!
