Hi, I Hope you can give me some advice as I am new to ev. We purchased a 2017 30kw leaf with a 6.6kw 4nr6a charger a few weeks ago. We get about 90 miles driving carefully at 4miles per kw which the dealer says is normal for a used leaf. It has 11 bars with a soh of 74% which I understand should be 9 bars? We have found out since it was at the dealer fully charged for over 10 weeks. Does anyone know if there is a charger bms update for this car or any suggestions?
Battery capacity and energy are measured in kWh, not "kw". "4miles per kw" should be 4 miles per kWh. As for "90 miles", what is that until? 1st warning (LBW)? 2nd warning (VLBW)? Turtle? Car totally dead and stops moving? Some unknown to me % SoC on the dash display?
Are you looking at the correct bars when you're talking about 11 bars? Where is "soh of 74%" coming from? It seems unlikely a car w/Leaf Spy SOH of 74% would have 11 capacity bars. That's too many.
See earlier posts in this thread about updates.
