Sad factoid here: 2012SL purchased new (remember this was advertised as the “100-mile range” product from Nissan at the time. When new I got about 72-75 actual miles primarily in Ohio not using heat. In winter with heat, range was 60 miles.
Fast forward to today in North Carolina with less need for heat. From a 100% charge, GOM shows as high as 70 miles. After driving under 2 miles, it reduces to about 57, and continues quickly downward. For the last several “tankfuls” of electrons I get about 36 miles from 100% to low battery warning, and another 3-4 miles to very low battery warning. All of this with no heat or a/c use. Worse, I still have 10 capacity bars showing so nowhere near the trigger for a battery replacement at the 5-year mark, which was now 2 years ago. Odd, and very disappointing.
