#nissanleaf #electriccars #EV
This EV is 3 years old and has travelled over 50,000 km’s, but how has the battery held up?
We utilised "Leaf Spy Pro" on the iPhone (also available on android), to checkout the battery.
Is it still healthy? A lot of people believe EV batteries "Die" after 2 or 3 years.
