And my low mileage, cool climate, mountain LEAF. I broke below 58 Ah yesterday now that the weather and battery (18ºC) have warmed up. Should drop the fourth bar in the 66 to 70 month range, so far as I can determine. (My hypothesis is that the high kW required for mountain driving heats up the battery significantly more than flatland driving.)drees wrote:I also don't consider it much of a "warranty" if the battery loses the 4th bar just outside of warranty, too, as so many southern California LEAFs appear to be on track to do.
Nevertheless, with the first ever public charge station due to get installed in my destination city next month — paid for by our state EV registration fee — I will be able to cope with my wilting LEAF for many years to come and I remain happy with it. (You folks with L2 public charge stations all over the place don't realize how good you have it.)
