The car seems to have often been charged twice a day (2400 charges in < 4 years, average 16 miles per charge) so bopping back and forth from the East Bay to Livermore and compulsively charging at both ends is a likely scenario.
I wouldn't put too much stake in the L1/L2 count. It has some quirks that could make it MUCH higher than the actual charge count. See viewtopic.php?p=452126#p452126
. Mine's at 2966. It looks like it was around 1640 at the time I looked at it/bought it on July 16, 2015, for a delta of 1326.
I definitely do NOT charge it twice/day. On weekdays, it's usually just charged once at work (almost always with a midnight to midnight 80% timer Mon thru Thurs) and that's it. On some days, I remotely trigger it to go to 100% about 1-2 hours before I leave. On virtually all weekdays, I don't charge at home. There's almost no reason for me to given that PG&E is expensive and charging at work is free.
My previous Leaf that I leased for 2 years and turned in on time ended with 29 QCs and 1303 L1/L2s, give or take a few of the latter. I definitely didn't charge it an average of 1.78 times/day but I did use the timers, probably the 80% midnight to midnight many times.
My commute with my current and former leased Leaf was about 24 to 30 miles/day.
For all we know, Nissan may have intended it to count something else like contactor cycles.
