That's for the 2019 plus, correct?
Yes, the 2019 Plus. I had my third big battery health drop after posting that, though, so now I’m at 169.19 aHr and 95.91%.
What's going on there?
I am strongly considering getting a 62kwh battery for my old leaf and trying to figure out what I'm getting into.
I can easily get a 40kwh, they're everywhere, but I think I want to hold out for the bigger one.
I think the BMS is upgrading a bit now trying to coordinate pack health with your driving habits. My 40 kwh LEAF took 15 months to settle down. I lost 7% but then my degradation slowed to barely 1% a year over the last 7 months; a period that included all Summer, first ever 12 temperature bars and everything else that is supposed to be bad for the pack.
So it all remains to be seen how well the E Plus fares after a year. I am guessing 5% loss. About a third of Tesla drivers report a chunk lost the first year with the rate of degradation dropping way lower after that so not completely unusual. (guessing the other 2/3rds simply don't care)
But a few things about the differences between the 40 and the 62 which are HUGE and growing.

With everyone going to a charge by the minute billing system, its important to get all you can from your LEAF and it my quest to figure that out, some very interesting things have come to light.
Did you know that on cold (cold for us, cool for Midwesterners) mornings, a cold E Plus can charge THREE times faster than a TMS Bolt?
