Would really like to try that, but really not equipped to do it safely. Maybe If a local shop was into this, I'd give it a try with them - especially if the CAN programming tools can unlock the CHAdeMO bidirectional protocols - anticipating the WallBox coming to the US!Lothsahn wrote: ↑Wed Mar 04, 2020 3:33 pmAnother option would be to install a 40 kWh battery in your existing Leaf. Since you seem low maintenance and don't mind the older body style and won't use heat, that could be a cheaper option.
The problem is finding a used 40 kWh battery pack and getting someone to install it and the muxsan can adapter. Depends on how much you want to roll your sleeves up.
Not a great deal. The 2016 is only worth 8-9k used these days. If you can stretch a little, a 62 kWh 2019 can be had from some dealers (Colorado Springs, notably) for just about $20k after all taxes and refunds/rebates (provided you have $7500 in taxes to write off).Marktm wrote: ↑Fri May 01, 2020 8:05 amFound a local 2016 SV loaded with what appears to be 11 bars asking around $11,000. I realize that I would need to do some charging along the way to make the ~100 miles, but spending an hour or two at a charging station should do it with the 6.6kW on-board charger (great upgrade from my current 2012!). I'd sort of like the challenge of making it using back country roads . I would sell my 2012 with it's 52 ahr battery.
So.... What would you guys (gals) consider good prices for both vehicles? Mine is in excellent condition with super nice 17" rims - I'd need to check out the 2016, but appears to be excellent also - and use my LeafSpy to confirm the battery condition. I would also (hopefully) determine if a replacement battery might be possible (hot South TX area). I know this works against making the ~100 mile trip, but I'm real flexible on making a charging stop - have several options on that.
Any recent actual pricing? THX!
I was concerned that the "Blue book" of the 2016 was somewhat overpriced - especially since the 30kW battery seems problematic. OTOH, If it appears I could get a battery replacement based on degradation, that could be a consideration IF, they put in a new battery (40kW?). The vehicle does appear to be very good condition and is an SV with CHAdeMO and heat pump - and low mileage ~26,000.coleafrado wrote: ↑Sun May 03, 2020 3:01 pm
