My Leaf’s range is not what it used to be. What are my options?

At EV rides, we specialize in swapping and upgrading degraded batteries in older leafs with factory sealed, original-manufacturer replacements from Nissan. All are batteries are from salvage. We do not open them, modify them, or refurbish or remanufacture anything.  All are upgrades are carbon neutral. We can install swaps or upgraded batteries in any year of Leaf.

We are more than a business.  We are here to assist the leaf community, in general and the “pioneering early adopters” (the PEAs) who sometimes purchased their early model year Nissan Leaf sight unseen and through whose commitment to the electrification of America’s fleet then, led to the charging infrastructure we have now.

We also offer Nissan Leafs with upgraded batteries of all sizes and trim level.

If you’d like to discuss our range of services, or if you just have general questions about leaf ownership give us a call.  we’re here to help if we can.

 

 

 

  1.  About how long does the upgrade take??

Once we get your Leaf in our shop, we typically need no more than 3-4 days to finish a project.  So, if you’re local, we can turn around your newly unbound BEV in a week or less.  If you’re not, you will need to transport your Leaf to our shop.  We can arrange an auto carrier who will provide door-to-door-to-door service at your own expense.

Our experience tells us that from the time you tell us you’re ready to go forward, to the time the driver shows up with his rig, to the time your Leaf arrives in our shop, can take anywhere from 3 days to 11.  Typically, the quickest place to get picked up is California.  Then follows the big midwestern cities, such as Chicago, Cleveland, etc.

As for cost of transport, the price fluctuates throughout the year.  However, you can typically expect to pay $500-$700 from California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Colorado.  It’ll be more for pick ups that are further afield.

Once we’re finished, the trip back (to California) can cost less, but you should budget for the same.

Another way that people deliver their leaf to us is on a rented U-Haul trailer.  You would have to investigate that option yourself.  Here is the AAA gasoline  calculator if you’d like to estimate that for a trip.

Of course, there is always the old-fashioned way: driving your Leaf through hither and yaw, mapping out a route between fast chargers you have never visiting before, hyper-miling at 11:40 PM, trying to make it to the motel without landing in turtle mode.  Yes, ain’t no venture like an EV venture, cause an EV venture… goes slowly and circuitously.

What can anyone actually do to extend a Leaf’s range?

A void has been created by Nissan’s decision to abandon the owners of early MY Leafs. The only option Nissan has made available to owners is to swap their battery with a refurbished (!?!) 24 KWh pack.  No increase from their car’s original range, and a price tag that would make Greta Thunburg pause and say “Am I really committed to stopping global warning?  I mean, am I $10Gs-for-an-extra-30-miles-of-range committed?”

But I digress.

Into this void have emerged DIYers, and various third-party aftermarket providers who have introduced novel means of adding to their customer’s vanishing capacity.  One company in the Netherlands, is now installing separate battery packs in the cargo space behind the rear seats.  Their “range extender” adds 72 miles to the existing capacity.  Another company claims they can deliver an additional 10% with a device that limits acceleration.  Other manufacturers have installed small, gas-powered motors in order to assist the High Voltage battery.  For others, refurbishing and remanufacturing are offered.

We at EV Rides have forgone the above and built our business on a more conventional, less labor intensive, fully carbon neutral model.  We use only factory-sealed, Nissan-manufactured batteries we acquire at salvage.  It does not require the presence of hazardous materials inside the passenger compartment.  Neither does it emit green house gasses into the atmosphere, nor add to the vehicles carbon footprint.

 

What is PMR and how is it calculated?

“Price per Mile of Range” or “PMR” is a useful tool by which you can compare the relative value of  purchasing a new or used BEV, or an upgrade or range extender.  Simply put, it is calculated by taking the price and dividing it by the range it will deliver.

Consider the following scenarios:

Preowned vehicles:

  • A 2020 Nissan SV PLUS for $43,900
  • A 2016 Leaf SV w/11 bars for $11,500.
  • A 2013 S w/11 bars for $6,500.

Battery replacement:

  • A 40 KWh battery replacement in a 2013 leaf for  8,790 Euros ($10,293.93)
  • A 62 KWh battery replacement in a 2013 leaf for 9866.35

Range extenders

  • An aftermarket product that increases range by 10% for 236 Euros ($276.36)
  • Battery range extender 17.6 KWh 6986.64

 

First, you must determine the final range that your Leaf will enjoy after the transaction.  That range can be expressed as a single figure, or as a “range of range”.

If it’s a single figure, then this is the formula:

PMR = P/R(M)

Where P = total price, including any additional costs (such as sales tax, shipping, etc); R=Range in miles.

If there is a “range of range”, this is the formula:

PMR = P(n-m)/ {M(m…n)}*

Where m = the low end of the range and n = the high end of the range.  P = P multiplied by the miles between the high and the low range.

*FULL DISCLOSURE: I got me a good  thinkin’ part between my ears, but I am not sure this is correct.

So, here are the final range figures:

Preowned vehicles

  • 2020 SV PLUS: 215 mi. $204.19
  • 2016 SV 21.25-15 4.05: 89-97 $128.06
  • 2013 S 4.1 “”  68-83 $86.41

Battery replacement

  • 40 KWh upgrade 156mi $66.00
  • 62 KWh upgrade 38.54

Range extenders

  • AM product: 2013 76 mi./4.10 to 90 miles 95 miles of range $2.91
  • Battery RE 143 mi.  7033.61 $41.19

 

What is your temptation that is standing in your way to greatness?

This time is used also to put things in their places. In the last thing before retiring was examination of the day. At the age of 79, he ascribed his health to temperance; the acquisition of misfortune to industry and frugality; the confidence of his country to sincerity and justice.

  1. The other virtues practice in succession by Franklin were silence.
  2. For the summary order he followed a little scheme of employing his time each day.
  3. From five to seven each morning he spent in bodily personal attention.
  4. In order to do the work thoroughly he decided to attempt each virtue and a quarter of its importance – one at a time.
How does that feel?

How do you affect those around you? How do they feel? Absorb every aspect of this path that you can take today if you so choose. Notice everything that you need to know about what it will be like if you carry on with the same behaviour, putting off change. Drift back to where the path splits. Step Five: Now take a step out on to the path to the right. This is where you create powerful, progressive change.

  1. Notice the sense of freedom in your thoughts.
  2. They often mean leaving the perception of security in order to discover your personal freedom.
  3. These are the changes that will bring happiness and satisfaction into your life. Just go there now.
  4. You have the freedom to be how you want to be.
You can remember what your childhood bedroom is like, right?

The first thing to remember about success is that it is a process – nothing more, nothing less. There is really no magic to it and it’s not reserved only for a select few people. As such, success really has nothing to do with luck, coincidence or fate. It really comes down to understanding the steps in the process and then executing on those steps.

  1. The Truth About Success.
  2. From my perspective then, here are the six key steps.
  3. Really experience that. See what you see.
  4. I want you to think about how you will feel in 10 years if you continue doing the exact same things you have done to date.
Do you feel that you have lived life?

The first thing to remember about success is that it is a process – nothing more, nothing less. There is really no magic to it and it’s not reserved only for a select few people. As such, success really has nothing to do with luck, coincidence or fate. It really comes down to understanding the steps in the process and then executing on those steps.

  1. Making the decision.
  2. Clarity – developing the Vision.
  3. Focus – having a plan.
  4. Commitment – understanding the price and having the willingness to pay that price.

At EV rides, we specialize in swapping and upgrading degraded batteries in older leafs with factory sealed, original-manufacturer replacements from Nissan. All are batteries are from salvage. We do not open them, modify them, or refurbish or remanufacture anything.  All are upgrades are carbon neutral. We can install swaps or upgraded batteries in any year of Leaf.

We are more than a business.  We are here to assist the leaf community, in general and the “pioneering early adopters” (the PEAs) who sometimes purchased their early model year Nissan Leaf sight unseen and through whose commitment to the electrification of America’s fleet then, led to the charging infrastructure we have now.

Into this void have emerged DIYers, and various third-party aftermarket providers who have introduced novel means of adding to their customer’s vanishing capacity.  One company in the Netherlands, is now installing separate battery packs in the cargo space behind the rear seats.  Their “range extender” adds 72 miles to the existing capacity.  Another company claims they can deliver an additional 10% with a device that limits acceleration.  Other manufacturers have installed small, gas-powered motors in order to assist the High Voltage battery.  For others, refurbishing and remanufacturing are offered.

We at EV Rides have forgone the above and built our business on a more conventional, less labor intensive, fully carbon neutral model.  We use only factory-sealed, Nissan-manufactured batteries we acquire at salvage.  It does not require the presence of hazardous materials inside the passenger compartment.  Neither does it emit green house gasses into the atmosphere, nor add to the vehicles carbon footprint.

You can remember what your childhood bedroom is like, right?

The first thing to remember about success is that it is a process – nothing more, nothing less. There is really no magic to it and it’s not reserved only for a select few people. As such, success really has nothing to do with luck, coincidence or fate. It really comes down to understanding the steps in the process and then executing on those steps.
