Re: Getting a Leaf. Advice needed. 2015 Tekna 24kwh or 2016 30kwh acenta

A little update on my situation. I have found a new ad for the 2016 Leaf 30kWh Tekna/SVE/SL (top trim level) with a 6.6kW charger and solar spoiler, odometer 117000km.

Seems to have all the nice extras that you can get. Owner stating that battery State of Health SOH is at 88% and had the BMS update done by Nissan dealer over 1-2 years ago. The owner stating that the winter driving range around would be around 120km, summer about 150km. I haven't seen the car in person but looking at the pics it's in good condition. It's the package that I'm interested in, but I still haven't decided 100%.

The asking price is 12900 euro. It has 88% battery SOH on its 30kwh battery, Is that roughly typical for its age and corresponding to its milege? Any thoughts on the price/value of such a car and battery SoH? What would be an average Battery SoH for 2016 30kw leafs?

Cheers :)

That's a reasonable SOH for that mileage and age Leaf. As for price, it's up to you whether all the options are worth the extra money. In the UK, I'd think the heat pump heating system would be very nice to have since it will increase range quite a bit when the temp is in the 30-60 *F range vs the low trim level pure resistance heating system.

As for price, it varies by location. The only way to know what is a good price for your area is to compare this vs other sales. Where I live, this would be the asking price of most Leaf's of that style and vintage. I don't know if they actually sell for that much or not but that's where most of them are listed. The best deals sell very quickly (here at least) so if you're going to try to get a good deal, you need to know exactly what you want and must be willing to commit immediately.

The SOH looks reasonable for that age car. My 2017 30Kwh is about 88 SOH, but I'm actually getting 10-20% more range than this owner is telling you. My car is "only" the S (basic) trim, but I wouldn't imagine being an SL would make that much of a difference in range.

I have no idea on the pricing to know if that's a good deal where you live.
