OP: rather than taking a picture of your phone, you can have your phone produce a screen shot. Hold Power & Vol Down on Android, or Side + Vol Up on an iPhone.

Ok for a 2014 SL with 62,000 miles. Ok for many more years of service to make a 40 mile winter commute with charging at work and at home.

sure, it'll work. You need 20 miles of range in Winter so yeah if you treat it like the former owner did. The balance on the 3 metrics, ahr, SOH and Hx shows very good charge management. Now it would be better if you actually have an active LEAF Spy shot as the one you have could be displaying information that is months old.

BUT...

You can easily not make it work by overcharging it which Nissan has made very easy to do.

The screen shot is from last week when he parked the car and started using his new Ioniq.

I agree that the battery looks to be in excellent shape. If your commute is 20 miles each way you should be set for a long time, especially with charging at both ends. Snow on the roads and using the heater when it's below about 20F outside will both take a significant hit on range but even in those conditions I'd say this car will do 20 miles each way for a very long time. Summer and nice winter days you can probably just charge at work, especially if it's free :mrgreen:

It does look like the car is about to drop it's first capacity bar, which usually happens around 85% SOH but that doesn't really affect anything except potential re-sale value.

40 miles each way commute. Charge at work and at home.

ohhh. Pass. Its still doable but there are lot of hurdles. Unless you are into challenges, I don't think its a good idea.

This comes down to as much about the car as it is about the driver.
OP: are you wed to blasting cabin heat in the winter, or can you make do with heat seating ?
If the former then look for another car.

The way to think about these cars is to figure out *usable* battery capacity, and then to figure out *usable* range in different environments. This car starts with 56 Ahr TOTAL battery capacity which is about 56*0.36 = 20 kWh. 2 kWh is reserved by Nissan and you should have *at least* 3 kWh of battery saved for unexpected stuff so your practical usable capacity between charges is 15 kWh. Winter drivers consume between 350 - 500 Wh/mile depending mostly on cabin heat use so the winter range will be as low as 15/0.5 and as much as 15/0.35 depending on driver.

Then there is battery degradation to consider. Figure on ~ 3% a year in your climate based on this battery history and other posts in this forum
