95 miles at 3.7 m/kwh (typical without heater)
52 miles at 2.0 m/kwh (typical with heater)
44 miles at 1.7 m/kwh (absolute worst case I have seen)

There, I finished your table for you. Yup, still not enough battery to get rid of the gasser, but at least it's a solid improvement!

Not typical for '13 and above ...

The siren-song of the GOM pulls hard! :lol:

EPA rating is 107 miles on a full charge, if I recall correctly.


forget EPA ratings. Leafspy showing 121 miles at 4.7 miles per kwh gives us 25.75 kWh usable. Multiply that by your favorite miles per and you get...


Except I was replying to pkulak who was excited by the GOM's "irrational exuberance" of 123 miles on 90% charge. I find the EPA rating is pretty reasonable in real-world use. YMMV of course! :)
no matter how you slice it that's a big improvement over a degraded 2012. :)

Absolutely a nice bump.

I am sure there are other threads to discuss your range experiences (good and bad).

This thread is for information about the 30 kWh battery collection from Leafs with the 30 kWh battery.

Apologies. Like so many threads that go off topic, it starts out tangentially related to the OP.

Thanks for sharing all of this data!

worst case scenario when new:

2.9 miles/kWh in cold DFW weather and highway driving = 73 miles, or around 65 miles with some buffer (VLBW), That is when new. After two years and losing 16% capacity it will be 62 miles, or around 55 miles with some buffer.

As turbo rightly points out - let us get back on topic.

Assuming the module numbers relate to physical location -- what location in the car maps to those higher-voltage cell-pairs?

Should be the stack under the driver (left front stack).

interesting that there is the same 1.5 kwh more or less that is unavailable for use. I get about 28.4 kwh available. Either way, I am guessing the numbers will change a bit as the car gets broken in. very cool!
