Re: Predicting Range & Value of LEAF Gen 2

I'm not too worried about battery degradation due to lack of active cooling, simply because I will be leasing again. I fully expect technology to continue to greatly improve, both in regards to battery cost and in regards to autonomous features, and expect after 3 years I will want the newer tech.

As long as Nissan continues to provide the full tax benefit on leases, I will continue to lease as well. This essentially gives me a 3 year test drive and a baseline for the degradation I can expect if I buy.
