Maybe a 30 kwh battery in old Leaf

This guy seems to have gotten a lot of range on his old Leaf. He claims 110-120 miles on a charge after battery replacement. I asked him to use Leaf Spy but don't think he is the most technical guy. Think he lives in LA. Maybe someone here can test the battery for him?

30kwhr is very unlikely

New 24kwhr can do over 120miles at 25mph

definitely not a a 30kwh battery, because math. His average mileage showed 4.4 mi/kwh Multiply by 24 and you get 105.6.

He would have had a range of 132 if it was a 30KW batt.

Nissan has said that the 24kwh batteries are not compatible with the 30kwh batteries and they have no plans to change that.

You probably right, but It depends on what data you choose to use. For example, in the video at 9:20 it says average 3.4 mi/kwh and range 98 miles. 3.4*28 = 95,2.

Yeah. And Edmunds achieved exactly 132 miles at 35 mph: https://www.edmunds.com/nissan/leaf/201 ... r-end.html on an '11 Leaf.

New/replacement battery packs are quite "spunky" for the first few months; unfortunately, they eventually settle down.

Just got confirmation on Warranty Replacement for my Leaf. Expecting to get a 24 kWh battery. That said, replacements seem to have a larger capacity than the original 2012 battery

LEAF specs:

Battery ordered: 8/14/2017
