Hi from New Zealand

I’ve just joined this community because I am considering buying a second hand Nissan Leaf.

But it won’t be my first electric car, because I converted a Fiat Bambina to electric 36 years ago in 1980, with lead-acid deep cycle batteries and a DC series motor. After that I did a few more similar conversions but times have changed, thanks mainly to the various lithium battery technologies!

The Leaf I have my eye on is a 2011 Gen 1 “G” model with less than 6000km on the clock. Is it possible the battery could’ve been compromised through lack of use, only about 1000km per year? I’ve got Leaf Spy ready to check it out when the car arrives, but does anybody have any comments or tips for how I should check it out?

Thanks in advance.
