Our 2016 SL OEM 30 kWh battery pack lost 4th bar Thanksgiving 2019 at 25K miles 5 weeks after we bought it. Only history I have it lived in St Louis MO area and BMS was reset Feb 2018.
I think the 40 kWh battery SOH was 99.87% at it's installment Feb 2020 and at 96.08% when it was totalled 7 Nov 2020 after 12K miles of use.
It was fully charged 6 Nov 2020 and when it was totalled the SOH was 96.08% and SOC was 88%. Soon after it was totalled we stripped off the front end including the radiator and condenser because the van that ran the red light and sheared off the nose they impacted the inverter and charger.
We then drove it 2 miles getting up to 68 MPH before we decided to rebuild it. Before we drove it 12 miles 3 weeks ago the SOH was down to 96.06%. After the drive the SOC was down to 77%.
It seems like disconnecting the battery may stop the 0.01 daily SOH decline when parked. I am going to install a blade battery disconnect and test this out when we get it back on the road.
Hobby aside, I'm surprised you don't put the 40 kWh pack into a cheap, crap battery but otherwise in good condition leaf. It might save you countless electronic gremlins that crop up in EVs after accidents.
I am surprised as well at this point in the game.
Due to dealing with Ankylosing Spondylitis for of over 50 years I have limited range of motion. I got both hips replaced on 1 August 1991 so I can walk so so but the arthritis has totally fused my spine many years ago. I have zero head movement so I really got use to the 4 camera surround view. In parking lots and drive thru windows it is awesome to see curbs before I feel them.
We got the 2015 Leaf SV home from Brandywine Maryland just before Christmas and was hell bent on finding out why a car with 27K miles and mint inside and outside was totalled by the insurance company. I knew it did not operate and it had been checked out due to removed fuse panel covers and glove box being in the back seat.
We were troubleshooting it outside still setting on a trailer because we couldn't get it out of park. It being winter I came up with a very bad sinus infection that put me in bed.
In hindsight it may have been Covid-19 because am still dealing serious blood clots in both legs since January. Some fragments filled both lungs so I spent Easter weekend in cardiac care unit getting tPA piped directly into each lung.
Since my 5 months of sickness and no success in getting the car to boots up we have decided to make it our parts car.
Somehow my son in the tangled nose saw the front camera and it still worked. Good
My hobby needs were met striping down our 2016 and trouble shooting the 2015.
Both are setting side-by-side at The body shop today.
