Its very important to find out the condition of the HVB.  At least in the 2017, you knew you were starting out with a clean slate and a fresh battery.  This one's battery could be abused, and you could end up with 1/2 the miles you can really do with a new battery.  I drove my new 2017 37 miles in EV back last summer.  Sometimes the HVB or older cars cannot even give you 20 miles.

 

So before you decide, have them charge it up and take it for a test drive and see how many kwh you can get out of the hvb.  Should be around 5.5 for a good battery, for a 2015 model I'd say 5.3 would be my minimum acceptance rate.

Drive around, reset trip meter.  Look at leaf screen that shows battery % remaining.

 

At 1.1 kwh used on the trip meter, you should be somewhere between 85 and 82% remaining.

At 2.2 kwh, 62 to 60%

At 3.3 kwh, 40 to 37%

At 4.4 kwh, 15 to 12%

At 5.5 kwh, 0% and hybrid battery used more than half.

 

This anticipates some acceptable loss of power from the HVB.
