Hello all,

I have found a leaf for sale and wonder if it is a 40 or 62kwh, similar to the 24/30kwh, there is very little indication of which it is!

Can someone help please?

Thanks.

Look at the model name on the v5, or look it up on something like my car check
135349


62kw models say e+ in the model name and also have 215hp rather than 150

The only way to identify a 62Kw against a 40Kwh is that the 62Kwh has a blue trim around the bottom of the from bumper. On accessing the charging flap, the CHAdeMO port lid has a blue circle emblem on it.

These are the only subtle differences.

I have a feeling the 3.zero 40s have the blue bling.

Best way to tell is to check the horsepower info. 40 is about 150 and the 60 is about 200. Any of the Reg checkers should know.

The seller should know as well. If they don't mention battery size it's likely to be the 40 just on probability.

60 is also about 300kg fatter than the 40 so checking kerb weight is another way.

And the other difference is it'll cost you £500 a year tax as the model is over £40,000.
Citation needed. Government VED page says

Vehicles with a list price of more than £40,000
You have to pay an extra £325 a year if you have a car or motorhome with a ‘list price’ (the published price before any discounts) of more than £40,000. You do not have to pay this if you have a zero emission vehicle.

The list price of the 62KWh only goes over £40K with an expensive paint job, it is quite possible to keep the list price a tad under and avoid the luxury tax.

So wrong to assume that all 62KWh, models cost over £40K.

Last budget the Chancellor abolished the luxury tax on zero emission vehicles, re: the link in post above, so removing the constraint, until 2025 at least.
