Re: Can a 2013 SV with 15,000 miles still have 12 bars?

Thu May 11, 2017 1:06 pm

Just today I sat in a co-worker's 2013 S with 46000 miles and 12 bars. A full charge said 21.2kWh and it was at 62.5AHr. I was quite amazed it was in such good shape compared to mine. I didn't get his build date, but his is about 6 months older then mine (built 12/13). We both keep it in a garage at home and under a parking garage here at work. We both only trickle charge at home, and use the same EVSEs here are work. We have comparable L1/L2s counts -- mine is 1200 and his is 1500.

The big difference is QCs: I have 60+ and he had only 3.

I thought the first bar loss was at 56.5, which is why I thought I was much closer. But I'm mentally prepared to lose that bar!

My Leaf was a 08/13 build, purchased 9/6/13 on the morning it was delivered. We lost our first bar a couple of weeks ago at 49,600 miles. I was looking forward to reaching 50,000 miles with all 12 bars and original tires, but the bars were not to be. We plan to get new tires sometime after Memorial day, at least the two front tires. The back tires have another 5,000 to 10,000 miles left on them.

We are still able to get almost 60 miles on 80% charge, and almost 80 miles on 100%.

The 12th bar is dropped at ~ 84% of new capacity. My 3 year old car has 95% of new capacity left but that is unusual.
