Leafers

In this Leaf video from Bjorn today, he showed how the nav does a remaining battery estimation when you put in the destination. Is this on the US Leafs, as I have not seen it on my SV+ plus Tech?

I’m curious to know this too. I saw the video and wasn’t aware the Leaf nav system did that. It seems fairly accurate too.

My '13 Leaf SV's nav system would give you an estimate of how many battery bars (out of 12) would be left when you arrived. It would also tell you if it believed there wasn't enough juice to make it.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

GerryAZ, did you see the estimated remaining battery feature in the video? (Lower left hand corner of the video screen)

Is there a way to trigger that on the US leafs?
I saw that in the video. I don't know if there is a way to have the navigation system used on USA Plus models display estimated %SOC. I will look at settings when I get some free time.

Edited to add: My previous cars would give a warning if there was not enough charge to reach the destination and suggest charging locations along the route. I just tried setting a destination well beyond the range and did not get any warnings. I much preferred the older navigation systems.

It appeared that 1 little feature for Bjorn was quite good. While not as graphically cool as Tesla or other new EVs, just as effective. A miss if we can find it our our Leafs.

GerryAZ When I used the onboard navigation of my 2019 SV Plus which I did once when I had a phone mess up was and was out of mobile range, I did get repeated warnings I would not make it along the route. I can't remember exactly what it said but it got annoying, and when I got back in signal I turned it off and went back to phone. I do think the warnings are needed for most people who may attempt road trips as we don't have as many chargers as gas stations and your average person will not watch power usage like we do.

On the screen I think you are talking about, I do not know where to find it in my US model either.

Interesting that Niro and ID3 don't really do any better than the Leaf efficiency wise.

In that kind of weather, its really hard to tell w/o driving each for an entire season. LEAF has no TMS which is both a plus and a minus while the others do have TMS which is both a plus and a minus. I haven't really thought about it much but I have to think that no TMS is better in the real cold since that is less power being taken from the pack but like all winter adventures; it really depends on how far you want to go and how much time you have to get there.

I think this video starts to show why the Leaf has remained so strong in Norway. Good snow packed road driving. Given winter is 8-9 months of the year, especially if you don't DC charge much, there is no significant advantage to the Niro and Id3 (a little range). Given the large Leaf population (68K over past 10 years), lots of support for the car. Guessing M3 in spite of its efficiency advantages, isn't everyone's choice as not all want a sedan or be conjoined to the Borg.

Curious as to the price differences between the different cars? Here, we all know the LEAF sells because its one of the cheapest on a per mile of range basis.
