I have no experience on 40kw but this is the feedback I had from several users.
Good to know that....i was after more of an average figure for the year.....I have no experience on 40kw but this is the feedback I had from several users.
Note that those figures will go up in warmer weather. I presented you with the worse case scenario so you don't have any surprises.
It a case of realism. In winter local you may get about 3.5 miles/kWh, so a 40kWh battery would give 140 miles. But that's from 100% to dead flat and you don't want to go there. With a used car the battery may also have lost a bit of capacity, so it may not even start with 40. So 100 miles is a good working value with some comfort zone.
mmm. I probably would have said a little more, but it depends on how you use the car.
Model Year 2017 is mostly LEAF 30 with a tiny number of 24's thrown in just to confuse us.Fancy finding me a good 2017 model leaf?...
what rough price guide on a 40kw used leaf around 2017/18 please?mmm. I probably would have said a little more, but it depends on how you use the car.
Heating up a cold car takes several miles of range. If you set off at -5C, warm the car up to 20C, let it get cold again.... repeat ... Drive at 70mph in the rain... you could end up with 100 miles useable.
None of us like to run the car down to zero. I planned to stay above 6% in the LEAF. That's ~5 miles I never did use taken off the "real" range. You need that if things go wrong.
The older cars certainly have some battery capacity loss too. 60 miles a week? Just about any used EV that works can handle 60 miles a week.
A 2014 LEAF that is down one capacity bar would be perfect. A car that is good for 60 miles worst case is fine if you only drive 10-20 miles a day.
It also depends on your budget. Of course a 2017 LEAF 30 is "better" but it will also cost you more money to purchase.
