I don’t know if this is what you were looking for but as I rolled in from traveling back from Bloomington IN to north of Chicago, my gom was —- and showing 1% for miles on the GOM (at least 4-5) yet I had not yet hit very low battery, and Leaf spy was still showing 4+ kWh remaining.
I need to take the car to Turtle, just haven’t had the time.
So informed speculation on range at 1 percent. 15 - 20 km????
Well, we can speculate. As packs have grown, reserve range has grown but % has been relatively static. I went to "below zero" the other day (for lack of a better term) when SOC meter went to "_ _ _" and had 11.7% SOC according to LEAF Spy. Now how much of that is usable is dependent on
1) How fast you are driving. Turtle is voltage triggered so an abrupt and heavy demand for power could likely trigger Turtle early if a single cell hits that voltage threshold.
2) Pack balance. I don't really charge to 100% unless I need it and haven't needed it more than twice in the past 5 months but my pack is very much in line so the idea of charging to full once a month to balance is probably not a good one.
3) Although not the time mentioned, I have gone to as low as 1.3% and a handful of times below 2%
Now, my foray into "below zero" was not all that exciting. I went to Chehalis planning to charge but there was a abandoned Bolt sitting there at 60% that had been charging over 30 minutes. Not willing to wait, I decided on Centralia which was only 4½ miles away.
There are side streets 40 mph with only ½ of freeway (VERY long on/off ramp actually) at 60 mph so an easy drive on the battery. I made it with 5-6 miles to spare.
When I went to "_ _ _" on the SOC meter, it said I had 12 miles of range and up to that time, it had been all freeway at 70 mph
