Hi

just wondering about easiest way to spot differences between Leaf Gens

I have a 131 Tekna and always thought of it as a gen 1.5

Whats the difference between the 1.5 and gen 2 -- or is there a difference

Not sure I'm going to answer it right.
Gen 1 Leaf 24kWh
Gen 1.1 Leaf 24kWh (new chemistry)
Gen 1.5 Leaf 30 kWh
Gen 2.0 Leaf 40kWh (new chemistry, new design)
Gen 3.0 Leaf 62kWh (new pack layout, module without case, design tweaks)

- Leaf 30 kWh

Hi Hermit

I was thinking of the 24kWh
gen1, gen1.5, gen 2

==============

From https://samholford.github.io/leafguide/ regarding 24kWh

terminology of Generation 1 and 2 is not official per Nissan. The next generation Leaf officially announced in September 2017 may begin to be referred to as Generation 2, in which case we will need to use Generation 1.5 terminology for late 2012 to 2016 Leafs.

Not wanting to start my own thread for this so thought I'd tag in the bottom of this, hope you don't mind. I've had a 24kw leaf (2015) Tekna and now have a 2nd hand 30kw ascenta. It seems to be more efficient than my 24kw one? Not sure if it's wheel size or technology in the battery? I'm easily getting about 4.4kw without thinking and can get 5kw around town without too much effort. Can anyone shed any light?

Leaf30 battery pack add 6kWh at the cost of additional 21kg. The cells has some changes at the cathode and anode as well.

I don't think wheel size increases efficiency. It could be overall changes in how you drive plus tweaks to D/B and Eco mode

Different motor in gen 1 to the gen1.5 and up and geared differently. Which makes the gen1.5 and up more eco at uk motorway speeds. Also no ptc heater zapping valuable miles on a 24kwh
