Re: Predicting Range & Value of LEAF Gen 2

Thu Jul 13, 2017 5:27 am

The Hyundai Ioniq achieves a 124 mile range with a 28 KWhr battery. Assuming Nissan has learned something about aerodynamics and efficiency in the last 6 years, this could equate to 177 miles of range with a 40KWhr battery. If Nissan gets this kind of range out of a 40KWhr battery and keeps the Leaf price around $25 it would be an absolute game changer.

Yes, lower aerodynamic drag, and better drivetrain efficiency get more range out of any given battery pack.
