Just got my first leaf this past weekend here in Seattle, a great condition (beautiful-aweome) 2015 SL, 28k miles. Did my first trip to work today and loved not using gas. Have a lot to learn about the EV world though, looking forward to figuring it all out.

Picked up my 2019 Leaf S last week. I came from an e-Golf lease and needed a little more range and new HOV stickers. Got a 3,500 Presidents Day rebate so the price was right, 17.9k out the door after fed tax incentive and CA state rebate. It's a bigger car than the e-Golf, not quite as sporty, but definitely very functional and a big deep trunk. I'm averaging about 150-180 miles on the range meter and that's pretty much double what I'm used to. I did not opt for DC fast charge as it's a commuter, but I could see where most people would want that option. Overall, I'm enjoying the car and just anxiously waiting for the plates to arrive so I can apply for my stickers.

I assume it's an S. Enjoy the car.

I will be doing a weeklong drive through Western Japan in two weeks. I'll report when I come back.

claim a 400km range = 248miles.
But then I looked at second image below that shows 440km at 94% charge.
That's 273 miles.

What's going on here? Because in USA the range is up to 226 miles.
I know many variables effect the range when I actually drive the car.
In the Leaf Plus, I could get anywhere from 200miles to 273 miles as the guess-o-meter range.

What are the EPA mpge average/city/highway values for the Plus?
Where on the internet are the official Plus mpge values posted?

Thanks

The Guess O Meter uses the last few minutes of driving to estimate range. The newest version is better overall, but it will still read too high if you drive very gently right before parking the car (as most do).
