Re: 62kwh Leaf Plus Efficiency Posting

Yes, I completely agree. Level power output is best. And as long as you aren’t holding up traffic, if you can maintain momentum by timing lights a little bit, it goes a long way in your efficiency.

Here is a question. Ionic and Tesla’s 3 both show much higher efficiency then the Leaf (even more so my plus). If I can get 6 around town, would an Ionic or 3 let me get 6.5 or 7? I haven’t seen any posting supporting that. I do get the feeling that Ionic and the 3 do a bit better job leveling the power curve in normal driving, more than drive train efficiency. Weight on the 3 is pretty close, a bit less on the Ionic.

I find the difference between 36 and 44 psi is bumps from missing pavement feel harder at 44. I can live with that. I would like to look for some light steel or aluminum rims that I could put aero caps on. Guessing you could shave 40 lbs of unsprung weight and improve aero a bit. Not sure where I would put the extra set of wheels.

Ok, 2 month check. This is after overnight level 1, 89% SOC and 270 on the gom. Last 40 or so miles have been pretty efficient.

Have othera go adjusted down further yet. This is with eco on and no ac/heat activated.

You have to take one set off the car. Sorry - couldn't resist. :D As for efficiency, I think you'd see the same numbers with an Ionic, as it mainly makes it easier to get high efficiency.

So, certainly have been happy thus far. Key will be to watch the rate of battery degradation.

The 40 battery seems to have a bit more negative than positive now with them in the wild for a year and a half. I have to say in some states you can get a new leaf (non plus) super cheap.

We'll probably drop below 98% SOH on the return trip home the end of this coming week at about 6,500 miles. Watching the SOH go down consistently makes me nervous about the longevity of the vehicle for us given the amount of miles we'll put on it a year.

Both Ioniq and T3 benefit from lower drag which is minimized in situations where your LEAF gets 6 miles/kwh. In those situations, I am thinking you will see little if any difference. Get on the highway and the numbers will start to diverge.

If it makes you feel any better my 40kWh is currently at 94.48% SOH with 15,600 miles on the car in 11 months of ownership. That represents a 4.72% SOH drop since new.

Two big road trips to Tennessee in August. Those hills are not kind... getting regen on the long hills is fun though. Coming down from the Newfoundland Gap to Gatlinburg, TN earned us back about 8% in range, B mode the whole way down.

About 165 - 180 in a Tesla. The king is the Prius Prime, I would get into the 120s with easy driving.
