If these data points are correct with quite a few 2nd gen LEAFs reaching 40K-60K-80K miles then it would appear that the chemistry of the 18+ MY units is even better than the 15 MY (which was regarded one of the best). I know there have been 15 MY units that have reached 100K+ with no bars lost but that does not appear common. We certainly need more reports to truly observe if this is true.
Fact is I have not seen a single photo posted of the battery bars showing any missing on any 2nd gen unit..doesn't mean there are not any...just I would have expected to see many by now from different hot locales.

Anyways back on topic here...what is the highest mileage 2018 MY anyone here has observed? Anyone hit 80,000 miles? I believe i recall seeing a couple reported at 40,000 miles+ without any degradation past 88/89 pct SOH so far...
One FBer has over 60,000 miles and SOH is just under 91%. This was a while ago. I will have to check to see what his recent numbers are
Well, part of that is simply the car is still quite new approaching two years on the road. The other part is simply cycling a bigger pack. That first bar might still be 15% (since none have left, we can only speculate) but represents a bigger chunk of kwh's.
The next 6 months will be the telling factor;
We see bars dropping so the degradation slowdown I and others saw after a 7-9% loss was temporary.
We don't see bars dropping except in extreme cases (Phoenix, etc.) which means we see what happens by next year
No one loses a bar because they all bought Tesla's.
I would say I wish I had more time with my 40 but... I DON'T!!
2011 SL; 44,598 mi, 87% SOH. 2013 S; 44,840 mi, 91% SOH. 2016 S30; 29,413 mi, 99% SOH. 2018 S; 25,185 mi, SOH 92.23%. 2019 S Plus; 3500.3 mi, 96.95% SOH
