Can you guys help me, when you get to 0% and zero on the range well three flashing dots, how far can you go till it stops im in a 2013 tekna, someone said he got ten miles sounds far fetched

Never got to Zero as it seems to cut off at 7%.

Ivve had one flatbed and would say i got no more that 5 miles from when it went blank.

I once ran approx 10 miles after the range indicator went off without reaching turtle mode to make last few miles home.

I have achieved 101 miles with 6miles on 0% battery and no range.
However, last Thursday the cold temperature, rain and high winds reduced overall range to 71 miles. Range & bettery % both went from 8 to zero in a flash at 61 miles. Managed 10 more desperate miles before I stopped with 2 to go!!!!
Nissan arranged return to base eventually on a flat bed but first the recovery guys turned up with jump leads!!!!

Our drivers are masters at running out cars. Usually about 1/2 mile from the charger! We find that when the miles and percentage disappear (---) which is at 6% or 7% we only have 3 or 4 miles to completely flat. Don't trust turtle mode because we had a car do 1.3 miles on turtle and another do 400 yards.

I agree @Michelle C&C, there can be huge variation.

Our LEAF fleet has only needed two recoveries - both my fault as I was pushing the envelope. On the first I stopped before the car did, having gone about 4 or 5 miles in Turtle, while on the second occasion I just coasted to a halt on the Edinburgh City Bypass seconds after the Turtle appeared.

Yes, both of these instances were in a Gen 2.

Range at the bottom end is hard to predict because:
  1. The computer does not know exactly how much is left; it makes a rough calculation from the voltage, temperature, health and history of the battery.
  2. Turtle will kick in when the weakest cell pair hits the minimum allowed voltage, around 3.0. So a battery with well-matched cells should go further than one with a poorly cell.
  3. As always, range for a given amount of juice depends on speed, temperature, gradients etc.

Interesting.

Just had two turtles in a day on the 24th. One trivial at the services countdown markers and the other a bit further out. Didn't measure distance, but I think it was slightly downhill, as still 3 gids at the charger and no real sense of speed loss despite only one power bar available (I'd found a truck doing a Leaf indicated 56/57 to help me limp in)

I was wondering how good for the battery this is though. I've seen generic li-ion info saying not so good to run below true 20%. Looks like a leaf pack is still around 10% SOC when flat (or at least 10%SOC by leaf spy..). Gut feel: if it was really bad it would cut our earlier...

Good to see that the C&C "test programme" includes regular (?) runs to flat with no major issues!
