Ugh. Learned some new vocabulary on that one. Still. Reassuring to see others like the car for being just what it is. A solid good car. Looking forward to ours next spring.

While small, the number of Leaf sales in Germany is growing.

Doug a while back I seem to recall you (maybe you) making a comment on an experience you had or heard about with reserve km or miles left when battery was low. If that was you can you tell me how it presented itself. Eg? 10 percent on the GOM and then X amount of km left etc. How many kilometres travelled at that point. Total including reserve range etc. Just a curiousity thing.

Thanks Doug.

I don’t know if this is what you were looking for but as I rolled in from traveling back from Bloomington IN to north of Chicago, my gom was —- and showing 1% for miles on the GOM (at least 4-5) yet I had not yet hit very low battery, and Leaf spy was still showing 4+ kWh remaining.

I need to take the car to Turtle, just haven’t had the time.

So informed speculation on range at 1 percent. 15 - 20 km????

Likely more. You have probably 12 careful miles or nearly 20km at very low battery. So at the point it hits 1% I would guess 25-30km.

I have been curious to understand why more posters have not tried the very low end of the battery to test available range.

When I am bored next and have a lower battery I will try to do slow circles around our library lot and charger, it just takes a long long time. When I did my 120 mile run in my 2013 Leaf it took hours to run off the last 30 miles.

In a Plus...so long to do the test, unless riding in on empty.
