No. If it shows 3 times: 120 volt, 240 volt 3 kW and 240 volt 6 kW, it should have the "6.6 kW" OBC.
If it is an 2013+ S trim w/the CHAdeMO inlet, it will have the "6.6 kW" OBC and should have the above 3 times.
for a pic of my '13 SV WITHOUT CHAdeMO inlet and a pointer to a pic of a car with it.
Do keep in mind that on the EPA range tests, on a new battery, a '13 to 15 Leaf (have 24 kWh batteries) achieve 84 miles on a new battery on a full charge. As they degrade, their range autonomy gets worse.
If you want to buy a '13, you should probably buy one built 4/2013 or later (on driver's side door sticker) and one that didn't reside in a hot climate. Or, buy a one, esp. a pre-4/2013 that resided in a hot climate w/say 3 bars gone. If you can get the 4th to go away before the 5 year/60K capacity warranty expires, you can get a free replacement battery.https://www.facebook.com/notes/seattle- ... 373291032/
