Just purchased 2014 Leaf

Tue Jul 31, 2018 5:25 pm

New to the forum and probably looking for best practices and few questions at this time. First time EV owner.

Purchased a 2014 Leaf S (02/14 manufacture) with 27K miles
Was in storage for 1+ years
Battery charges to full 12 bars for now, shows 85-89 miles with full charge
Has DC and 6.6 KW charger onboard
Battery scan report shows 90% SOC

1) How can battery scan report show 90% SOC but it still charges and gives almost full original range/12 bars?
2) How can I used Nissan Connect or Leaf Manager, do I need subscription

Appreciate the help, thanks.

The battery always charges to somewhat less than full. Are you sure you mean "SOC" and not "SOH"? The latter sounds right for a 2014 that was stored with much less than a full charge. If you want a full charge, you have to let it charge until all the charging lights turn off, and then you might see 94% or so.

It always will, unless you develop some problem where charging prematurely stops.

The fuel bars will go to 12 regardless of how many capacity bars you have.

Welcome to the forum. You have an S so you don't have the navigation system that is included with SV and SL and which is required for remote access. Therefore, you cannot use Nissan EV Connect.
