The docs are definitive. Search http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... -press-kit
for 30, along with the Specs tab. If you have the factory nav system and piano black plastics in/around the center console and shifter, you have an SV or SL. If you have factory black leather, you have an SL. 2016 SV and SL only came with 30 kWh battery.
If you had the original Monroney (window) sticker, it should've indicated 107 miles EPA range and probably mentioned 30 kWh battery. 24 kWh Leafs from model year 2014 to 2016 (S trim of the '16) would have 84 miles EPA range.

I also had figured the 30 kWh battery was improved given its longer capacity warranty but we already have 2 30 kWh capacity loss threads and have 12 30 kWh 4 bar losers (viewtopic.php?p=519601#p519601
In contrast, I don't recall any 2015 "lizard" battery 4 bar losers, yet: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=24532
I agree, it is very disappointing.
