I purchased a new 2018 Leaf SV. Got a nice $11,500 discount and hopefully most of the $7500 tax credit next year.
It had 550 miles and was sitting in the lot for the past year or so.
My leafspy is saying SOH is 95.89%. Does this seem ok? i was expecting something in the 98-100 range for being new.
Also not sure the last time it was charged up to 100%. I drove it home at 97% SOC. So i'm wondering if i should charge it up to 100% to rebalance and see if my SOC goes up?
Charging to 100% isn't usually necessary, and leaving the battery at 100% reduces life.
The first 5% loss is quicker than the later loss. The car loses capacity while sitting, especially if sitting at near 100% SOC.
SOC as read by LeafSpy is true SOC, and there is a top buffer, so 97% is expected.
