Mileage driven does not correlate to capacity loss, and with good lithium packs like the 4/2013 through 2015 packs, time, while a factor, isn't a large one. So we have my 2013 (and Cwerdna's, IIRC) Leaf losing about 13% capacity over almost five years, which is typical for a Wolf or Lizard pack in a mild climate. Then we have the above pack, losing 9% over something like 12-15 months even after the update. My skepticism over this magical "update," tempered by my always adding that we don't know for sure either way yet,...
FWIW, my 5/2013 built used '13 Leaf is past 5 years old now and SOH is now hovering at around 83.xx%. (Carfax and Autocheck both say my car was manufactured 5/23/13.)
Stats from a few hours ago were:
odo: 59,163 miles
QCs: 0 (don't have CHAdeMO)
But from about 12 hours before that, they were:
odo: 59,133 miles
I'd have to dig back to see what it was at 5 years of age and a bit before.
viewtopic.php?p=511915#p511915 was my post about my 1st capacity bar loss. SOH from that point plus maybe 6 months tended to fluctuate from 83% to 86% or so. Somewhere along the way, I think Turbo3 added the two more digits of "precision" to the Leaf Spy UI.
The climate for my home and work are not that mild. I'm in a hotter part of the South Bay. I've been trying to baby my battery on most days. There's 1 guy at my work who lost 4 bars on his '11 or '12 before the 5 year/60K capacity warranty expired. There's a guy I know from https://www.facebook.com/groups/BayLeafs/ who also lost 4 bars in time. Another guy from the same FB group missed the capacity warranty and jumped ship to Clarity BEV. I think he also now has a Model 3.
