US Nissan LEAF Owner Surpasses 76,000 Miles in 24 months

2011 Nissan LEAF
To the best of our knowledge, the highest mileage Nissan LEAF in the US has surpassed 76,000 miles in two years.

2011 Nissan LEAF Battery Pack
That’s impressive for sure, but the owner of that LEAF says the battery pack has suffered some degradation and that it no longer allows him to travel 63 miles on the highway on a single charge.

Who’s this high-mileage champ? It’s Steve Marsh from the state of Washington, known as TaylorSFGuy on the MyNissanLEAF.comforum.

Marsh’s daily route is roughly 126 miles—mostly highway—to and from work.

Initially, to commute, Marsh charged his LEAF twice a day (in the night at home, and during the day at work). The total number of deep battery charges exceed more than 1,200 cycles.

Unfortunately, the progressive loss of capacity that is typical in electric cars, has led to a situation in which it’s now necessary to charge “at least twice a day. I’m now using QC once a day if not more.”
