My guess- Leaf 40 being phased out, Leaf Plus ramping up.

That may be the case, but over here in Japan they’re selling them side-by-side almost as tiers. The 40 is available in 3 trim levels, and the 64 is available in 2. I imagine that will be the case moving forward, but if the can get the price of batteries down, then it does make sense to phase out the 40.

Anyone with a plus on this thread have a high gid reading to share?

A quick search of this thread turned up 2 readings.

http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 32#p551932 - 767
http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... ds#p554783 - 664, not fully charged?

I'd (via wild guess and some basic math) would have figured mid to low 700s...

Hope we can get more.

The Leaf Plus has a peak (new) Ahr rating of 172 Ahrs, or 62 kWhs capacity. What more is to be gained by knowing "high gid"?
Gid is just another measure of battery capacity. All new Leaf Pluses will have the same battery specs. It's not as if some Pluses
got slightly higher capacity batteries because of a different chemistry when the "soup" was made at different production dates.

Gids give a reading of usable capacity. Getting a few will give an indication about variability.

Just checked my LeafSpy log and this was just after my charge yesterday. I haven't charged to 100% cause, why :D

GID 685
SOH 884938 (88.5%)
AHr 1750240 (175.02)

770-775 seems to be the range.

Can’t wait to upgrade from my 200 gid 2013 on a month. (It’s a low gid 2013, which never saw more then about 260).

Really? And Ahrs don't? You can define how a GID is calculated and how it differs from total battery capacity at 100% SOC?
You do understand that even when the Leaf's battery is new, there's a sampling error associated with measuring Leafs
with very close mileage (< 500)? Maybe you need to get LeafSpy, visit a number of Nissan dealers and sample at least
five new Leafs per dealer and report back to MNL.

Bottom Line: You need to be more concerned about monitoring the degradation of the Leaf Plus battery after a few months,
especially during the Chicago heat and super humidity between July and August.

Soooo three questions.

1. What month do you think the 2020 model year will be available?

2. What new goodies will it have over the 2019? There’s always a few things.

3. What are the chances of coulis red being available in 2020 models?

Anybody with a crystal ball? :)
