What part of the world was this Leaf used as a Taxi in? Leaf battery pack health seems to be holding up well in places with mild or cold climates. It's hot climes where it's a real problem. A friend bought a 2013 Leaf second-hand, and the battery health is still quite decent. But I live in a part of the world where it's generally warm (not hot) in the summer, and cool (not cold) in the winter. So the lack of active thermal management isn't an issue.
Similarly, so far the older Kia Soul EVs are holding up great as well here. Two people in my circle have 2016 Kia Soul EVs and are experiencing range that's nearly as good as new, last I heard. A temperate climate is great for an EV.
