People looking for a used 2018 Leaf in three years should have no trouble finding them. I can buy mine off lease essentially for free (to me) and I'm leaning away from doing so.
Yeah, still too early to make and definitive conclusions. So far I am seeing
** very small drops of zero to .01% per day which averages out to roughly 2½% a year. Mileage seems to not be a factor.
** A group (3) of large drops and by large I mean more than say .2% in a day.
1) first drop 4/11/18 happened for some unknown reason but was in week when mileage was over 800 miles. Loss .68%
2) 2nd drop (over 2 days) happened likely due to open lot storage while on vacation july 6-17. SOC storage ~40%. Temps were much higher than normal during this period hitting mid 90's on some days. Loss 1.25%
3) over 3 days (see above)
So 2 events seem to have direct reasons (long term storage) and extended time at SOC.
All I can say is... glad I have 3 years to decide.
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; 412 mi, 99.72% SOH
