Hello @biblo

Unfortunately not, I own the 24kw but looking to upgrade to the 40kw, possibly 64kw at a push so I am able to provide this fantastic feature! Nissan only provided V2G from the 2018 Nissan Leaf.

Thanks for that.
I was confused by ovo asking for volunteers for their v2g trial who owned leafs of 30kw or 40kw battery capacity.
Sorry, but I think this reply is completely wrong; all LEAFs from late 2013 onwards (i.e. when range split into Acenta/Tekna etc.) support V2G AFAIK, with the exception of those Visia models without rapid charge and hence no CHADEMO connection.

I have 24kWh battery in my 2014 LEAF, and I'm considering this, but bigger question is whether there is a bigger proportional degradation to be expected with our smaller battery, and can I live with this risk? From that point of view, maybe most practical for 30/40/62kWh owners.
