I joined the NZ Leaf community last week. Picked up a 2014 Leaf from a business (not car dealer) who had imported it themselves from Japan.
They had done everything to make it NZ friendly, English dash conversion, English infotainment system conversion, new 8A charger, new P6 tyres all around.
They said when they imported it, it had 12 bars but recently dropped to 11. So I figured it was just under 85% SOH.
However, I am not getting the range I am expecting. On Friday I left home with 80% charge, did a 60 km trip and when I got home had 19% charge left.
I plugged it in to recharge to 80%, estimated time to charge on the leaf dashboard was 8+ hours. The next morning, I checked the charging cable's LCD screen. It said it had supplied 10.3 kw and time spent charging was 5 hours and 30 mins.
If 10 kw equals 60% of charge capacity in my battery then I estimate I've only got ~70% of the original 24 kw capacity. Looking for help, trying to understand what is going on here.
