### Re: Guess the Monroney contest: Tesla 3 and LEAF 2 efficiency ratings

Posted:

**Fri Jan 12, 2018 10:30 am**The (Euro) WLTP range and efficiency ratings for the 2018 LEAF have been published by pushevs.com, and they may indicate better-than-expected efficiency and range for the 2018 LEAF.

Pedro, reports correctly below that the two test cycles seem to produce similar results but

So the 168 and 177 mile ranges below may indicate a significant upside surprise in the 2018 LEAF efficiency/capacity and EPA range.

*incorrectly*states that "we know the expected combined EPA range for the 2018 Nissan Leaf is 150 miles".So the 168 and 177 mile ranges below may indicate a significant upside surprise in the 2018 LEAF efficiency/capacity and EPA range.

Nissan Austria just released the WLTP range and efficiency figures for the new 2018 Nissan Leaf.

...Version

Visia and Acenta (16 inch wheels)

N-Connecta and Tekna (17 inch wheels)

WLTP city range

415 km (257 miles)

389 km (242 miles)

WLTP combined range

285 km (177 miles)

270 km (168 miles)

WLTP combined efficiency

19,4 kWh/100 km

20,6 kWh/100 km

Notice that WLTP efficiency figures measure plug-to-wheels consumption, this means that the onboard charger efficiency matters. Nonetheless, as the reader Rodrigo Melo noticed, the combined efficiency and range figures don’t add up. Or the combined range figure is wrong, or it’s the efficiency. I think that the error it’s in the range… As we know the expected combined EPA range for the 2018 Nissan Leaf is 150 miles (241 km), and we’ve seen that the EPA and WLTP combined ranges on the Chevrolet Bolt EV are very similar. For this reason the combined WLTP range on the new Nissan Leaf should be around 150 miles (241 km), then the efficiency and range ratings add up...
