That was one of my interests as well, to see how much regeneration I could get on the downhill side. The car essentially started the long downhill at about 92% after going over the South Lake rim climb. For a good part of the that segment, regeneration kept the range decrease at 0, and it wasn't until Placerville that the free ride was over.

So it didn't increase your % at all. I would've thought regen would get you up to 100%. Then again, people fly on that stretch, so maybe you can't just coast all the way down.

On Interstate 80 down you can have a net gain due to regeneration, but on Highway 50, your regeneration equals your use so it is like coasting. My range really didn't change until I got past Placerville so that was really a gain of about 60 miles. With the combination of regeneration and ProPilot Assist modulating my speed, it was a very relaxing drive compared to how it usually is with everyone jockeying into position for the passing lane stretches.

Anybody with the new 62 kWh Leaf e-Plus have the same intermittent A/C blowing warm issue?

Uncertain; he said SoC dropped below 92% from Placerville.

Wet EV:
Not quite how I would engineer it.


What you don't want is the car at the airport at midnight dead. In the rain. At 1C or 34F. With a stiff wind.


What you do want is a "check EV system" light turned on with a code indicating that the 12V battery is getting weak, and may fail soon. Ideally this would provide a few months of warning.

It seems the problem in this case is likely to be failure of the charging system. For decades now, ICE vehicle have had ammeters & idiot lights monitoring the function of charging systems. This would catch charging system problems without detectable use of energy. Similarly, since the current load on the 12v battery at starting is much less in EV than ICE with starter motor, just having a volt meter check of 12V voltage with notification of >14.5 or <12 could monitor charging and non-charging state of the battery.
