Re: So, owners what range are you getting ?

This is exactly why I upgraded to Tesla. No more range anxiety. Road trips are fun now and with the V3 SuperCharging coming on line the charge time is dropping in half.

I have 2011 Leaf here Finland (Scandinavia, Europe). SOH is about 65% and I have 8 bars. I lost only 1 % capacity in 12 months. It seems that the battery likes that it is used. When I was in work we drove about 8.000 km (5.000 miles) per year. Now after retirement we drove three times so much. On summer the range is about 100 km (62 miles) and on winter the range is 70-80 km (43-50 miles). Heating reduces range 25-30% because I have no heatpump at Leaf. We have made 454 km (282 miles) long trips to my wife's mother by charging 9 times going there. The longest trip I dare to drive before charging at winter is 70 km (43 miles). When the leaf announces -- km left there is still SOC 25%. It seems that the leaf battery may last much longer than 10 years. After that the battery will serve for sail boat electric propulsion.

Same for mine! It's at 9/12 bars and 64.5% health (somehow) and gets about the same range after about 84,000 miles. It never reaches less than 20% SoC either - must be due to increased internal resistance.

Drove my 2015 Leaf until Turtle mode. Got an exact 90 miles (144 kms). Drove for another 0.7 km to the nearest charging station. The average consumption was 8.4 kms/kw which suggests to me that the usable battery is actually 17.1 kw/h (144/8.4). My battery actually charges to 100% with the 12 bars still. Charging 3.5 hours charged from 0 (turtle mode) to 98%.

You mean 17.1 kWh (not "kw/h").

IIRC, a 24kWh LEAF had about 21kWh usable battery capacity when new. You lose the first bar at 85% remaining capacity. That is 17.85kWh. So your computed value is close (but a little low) for a 12 bar LEAF that is close to dropping the first bar. You might want to get LeafSpyPro to get a read on your SOH.
