New Nissan LEAF Evaluated At 0% Charge With LEAF Spy Pro
The new Nissan LEAF is rated at ~40 kWh (nearly 39.5 kWh of capacity), out of which usable is several percent less due to top and bottom buffers.
According to the Lemon-Tea Leaf’s video, the fully charged LEAF was at ~38 kWh (the rest is a top-end buffer), and fully discharged probably still has 1 kWh or so (the instrument cluster says no energy at about 3.8 kWh left – so that’s the reserved revealed by the Leaf Spy Pro app).
Overall, Lemon-Tea Leaf did some 121 miles at 60 mph on a full charge with 9.9 miles left (3.8 kWh) between the nominal 0% and a dead battery.
The new Nissan LEAF uses 192 lithium-ion cells (56.3 Ah and 3.65 V) produced by AESC, acquired by GSR Capital from Nissan/NEC.
