Everything I wrote was about the 2013 I drive, extrapolated to the 2018 because it's largely the same car, with the same displays relating to charge and range.

I arrived at my destination with 20 km remaining on the distance bar -

Here is my question:

Because our 2013 Leaf reminded us to charge at around 28 km remaming and the 2018 did not - is the notification based on 'actual' kms remaining a reserve of KWatts after exhausting this?

The dealer does not know...

It would be nice for all of us to know.

You have reminders. In fact, the 2018 has EXTRA reminders.

The lights of which you speak do not exist.

The "indicators" for LBW And VLBW are EXACTLY the same as your 2013 and like always, you will get an alert on the dash along with an idiot light when either situation is present.


You likely simply did not make it that far on your trip. FYI; the GOM on earlier LEAFs was a bit of a joke. On the 2018, its now a "headline" joke.
