Incidentally it is 30kWh - if EV specialists can't get it right we are all doomed :D

30kw motor or maximum supply from battery?

Glad I have the previous model which can deliver a lot more power.
Quite agree - and a Nissan ad should not get that wrong. However, AutoTrader ads are the worst certainly when I was looking at the end of last year, as they all show the "Leaf 80kW" which is the power of the motor and don't distinguish between 30kWh and 24kWh battery capacity unless the seller chooses to put it in the title.

But that aside welcome to the forum @T Edwards you were very helpful when I was looking for a Leaf deal at the end of last year having been messed around by my local dealer. Managed to bash them around the head enough to honour the original quote in the end but would have gone with your offer if not :)

@T Edwards Just to save you changing it twice it should be 80 kW (peak motor power) and 30 or 24 kWh (overall battery capacity). The correct use of upper and lower case for the units does matter if one wants to be professional. k = 1000 times (K = 1024 times) and it's Watt because it is the name of a scientific unit but it is lower case for hours because it would be too easy if it was all totally consistent. :)

From the above you can see if one used K where it should be k one would be misrepresenting the peak power of the motor.

In the EV world the units seem to be the equivalent of the greengrocer's apostrophe.
