It sounds like we need to keep the car/battery at 100F and heavily on the road to keep our batteries healthy. The newer chemistry certainly doesn't seems to mind the heat like the eariler car.

We'll let your Leaf be the test case, given your confidence.

Did you see my post in the other E Plus thread? Mine stabilized between 99 and 100º on a day and drive that would have likely increased the temps on my 40

We should have a better idea about these new batteries after we compare Dave's statistics (Washington) with mine (Arizona) after another year of use.

Board, with the sale of our Minivan today, we are officially an ev only family. 2 Leaf Pluses, cords and no more tanks.

Let's hope the last fill up i did for the new owner is my last stop to the gas station.

Thanks to those on the board that sent their info into pluginamerica.

Woohoo. Way to go Doug. We are in year 5 of no gas....although we still have a diesel pusher Motorhome. Have to wait till the Tesla semi is converted to a Motorhome for that one to go.

Thanks.

Just filled up the S+ using my nc2c at evgo. (Only back up to 72% as I am trying to just use the middle third of the battery).

100 to 28% on the GOM...215 miles, 80-90 or so which were highway/freeway. 5.3 overall average...a good amount of AC usage in the last few days. Pretty amazing compared to our SV+.

The SV+ does fine, but averaging a solid .5 miles per kWh lower. Partly due to driving style (wife drives less efficiently) and partly car efficiency.

Doug,

Your differences in efficiency between S+ and SV+ are probably mainly due to odometer error. If your SV is like my SL, it travels further than the odometer indicates (probably about 2% with OEM Michelin tires) while the S probably travels less distance than the odometer indicates. Try comparing indicated distances between the two cars for the same route.
