Hey everyone. I just got an FFE 2017 on a lease (15k/year). I downloaded for scan lite and want to keep tabs on my battery over the coming years. I'm a leaf owner as well and consider myself quite experienced in measuring battery degradation and such.
My objective is to simply determine how my pack is doing over the coming three years so that I can anticipate whether buying the car at least end is the best course of action. I got a great deal on the car so I'm out either $7300 at lease end and can either turn it back in, or buy it for $8080, so either way is fine by me. If the pack is holding up well, then I'll buy it, if not, then I'll give it back. Right now my Leaf (24kwh 2015 model) is at about 11% degradation after 3.5 years and 54k miles. I expect t the FFE to be better than that by the end of lease considering the battery is both larger (fewer cycle counts), and also has TMS.
My questions are (1) What is the expected full capacity of a FFE battery when new? Not talking the 33.5kwh, but the actual measurable usable capacity at 100% charge. (2) Will for scan measure this? if so, how? (3) Can I expect this number to be lower right now because we are getting into the cold temps of winter.
my car was manufactured in 9/17 and has 350mi on it right now.
