Leaf vs Kona capacity

Wed Jul 24, 2019 11:03 am

Interesting French video, suggesting Leaf Plus capacity is only 58.4 kWh and the Kona is actually 65.

I do feel Nissan should start advertising the usable capacity of the battery and not the entire battery. It makes their perceived efficiency look worse.

I don’t know enough French, but the efficiency looks quite good for its class.

Renault also reports usable capacity. Their capacity advertising is more straightforward than that of Nissan.
