Low battery notifications

Thu Jun 10, 2021 6:35 am

I was wondering if the 2020 Leaf has any sort of low battery notification. I haven’t let it get that low yet, so I wouldn’t know. However, my friend has a Tesla, and when his battery gets low, it beeps at him and shows him all the nearby charging stations. Does the 2020 Leaf have this feature, and if so, how low does it have to get before receiving the notification? I would hate for it to get low on a long road trip and I not notice.

not to be a jerk...but it's all in the owners manual...and the manual is also available at Nissan online.

Also, a quick search of this forum: https://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic. ... ng#p389850

At around 6%, you get a dash warning, warning lights, etc. A message on the console will show your remaining range and give you an option to search for nearby charging stations. You get the same warning as you near 2%, 1%, 0%, etc. After 0%, you have about 20-30 miles of hidden reserve range if you drive economically. Once you go through the hidden reserve, you hit turtle mode with a major power reduction. At that point, you might have about 1 or 2 miles of range left if you drive slow. After turtle mode, it hits complete shutdown, you are dead in the water at that point, but on land, not water. :lol:

The Gen I Leafs had a "Low Battery" warning at roughly 18%, followed by a "very Low Battery" warning at about 10%. Those are gone now...?

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

You are right, OP didn't mention what trim type.

My 2019 SL Plus gives the low battery warning on the dash in front of the steering wheel at 6% SOC and distance remainin numbers start to flash--nothing on the navigation screen. At 2% SOC, the distance remaining goes to --- (what we called very low battery warning on the earlier LEAFs). At about 1% SOC, the % SOC display goes to ---% (I consider this extremely low battery warning). Power limited (Turtle) mode is next, followed shortly after by shutdown.
