I finally took the plunge and bought a brand new silver 2022 LEAF S after driving my 2012 LEAF for ten years. I so love the newer design and the longer range. My 2012 now gets 40-50 miles per charge. I have loaned it to my son-in-law, who has a 25 mike commute & can charge at work. So it is still in service. We are both very happy.

You'll enjoy the better battery tech too. I've put over +50K miles on my 2020 and the battery is still giving me 100% of the advertised range plus extra since I drive on good eco tires and know how to drive efficiently. My original 2013 was down a noticeable bit on range by +50K miles, but I knew that time was coming and planned for it. This time, I was expecting the same, but no change in measurable range and while the battery does have *some* reduced capacity as far as looking at the technical health of it, the range is unaffected from what I expect to have or plan for when doing long trips. Overall, very, very happy with it. That and all the oil changes, filter changes, belt changes, etc, along with all the other stuff on the ICE I was able to skip. ;)

Did you feel any difference between your 2018 and 2020 Leafs in terms of degradation?
