The readout on the full charge shows 72 miles and 4.6KW.
I don't have the software or the tools to check the SOH etc. But I'm buying it for 6K. It's enough range for my daily commute and I have a slow charging at work. Any input would be appreciated.
Sounds like a great deal. I have a 2014 Spark EV w/o the DCFC option, that I purchased used with only 1500 miles on it and it has been trouble free. You can get a reasonable estimate of the HV battery's SOC by using the data on the Energy Information screen in the center display - press the LEAF BUTTON near the bottom right-side of the center display. Reset your trip meter and reset the energy information screen values to zero. Charge the HV battery to 100%. Drive the car in D at a constant speed for about 40 or 50 miles. Do not use AC, heat, lights, etc. and avoid headwinds, tail winds and drive on a level surface. At the end of your trip, go back to the Energy Information screen. Add up the percentages for Drive Climate and Battery. Convert the total to a decimal value and divide the total ENERGY USED (KWh) by the decimal value. This will give you a reasonable estimate of the HV battery capacity in your car.
If you know someone who has a Spark EV and uses TorquePro to measure his or her battery capacity, have them measure your car's HV battery capacity too. It will be a more accurate value.
