Battery Pack Capacity

The chart below shows the report capacity bars versus miles driven for each of the vehicles in the LEAF survey. The capacity bars give a rough idea of the battery pack's capacity. We believe the first of the 12 bars is lost when the pack has lost about 15% of its original capacity and thereafter bars represent about 7.5%.

With aftermarket devices that plug into the on board diagnostics (OBD) port, owners can read a more precise estimate of the pack's capacity. After market devices include Gary Giddings meter, LeafSpy, and others.

The chart below shows the reported battery capacity versus miles driven for each of the vehicles in the LEAF survey that reported a battery capacity measurement. Battery capacity is measured by reading the car's amp-hour value or doing a full charge and reading the Gids.

The vehicles are grouped by their battery pack size (24 kWh or 30 kWh) and whether they have had a battery pack replacement.

The trend line shown gives an idea of what the data suggests is the average LEAF experience.
