If it had 4WD it would look a lot like a EV version of a Subaru CrossTrek

When we need 200 watts' worth of LED lighting in the daytime, we'll know just who to call.

2019 Leas Plus S: exactly one year tomorrow, 13,006 miles total ((one and one/twelfth thousand miles each month average), no issues whatsoever and with 2 exceptions no range anxiety. (both times we got anxious temperature was in the single digits, snowing, studded snow tires and the car simply does not go any where near as far on a charge. Get used to it. Otherwise, we drive around all the time and charge only as needed...). Maybe 20 QCs total, maybe 20 Level 2 charges, otherwise all Level 1 at the garage using a manual timer to keep the charge under 80 percent or so. Seems to avargae around 4.3 M/KWh summer 3.7 winter, dirt roads and funky driveways are a lot of the miles. After the warranty is out we will look at the lift option.....

Based on your annual mileage, I would set an SOC target of no more than 60% in Summer. Winter is up to you as the variances are too great to suggest something that covers both needs and comfort level. The "80%" ideology was, is and always will be a marketing mistake on Nissan's part. They should have offered multiple options from day one but as we enter decade #2, they still haven't pulled their head out. Apparently obliterating the lingering legacy of Ghosn is more important right now.

Thanks Dave, in real life the battery seldom gets to 80% because even 50% gets us around for days..... 80 is a sort of max unless travelling. It will remain to be seen how these batteries hold up, not yet enough hard info that I can see.....

Right now my SOC rarely hits 50% either. Even with half a pack, I have more than enough. When I do charge its generally for 90 mins to 3 hours. A lot more 90 minute sessions than anything else.

I have been charging the cars to mid 70s once it hits mid 30s SOC. I know that is a bit higher than perfect, but there is something comforting about having around 200 miles (bit less in SV and a bit more in the S) on tap.

Averaging 500 miles a month? What was your longest trip in September? Then again, we have the guy with the 40 kwh who charges to 100% or near it I guess twice a day several times a week. He was at 105,000 miles and 89% SOH several months ago. Have you seen any more recent updates from him?
