2018 Leaf's poor fast charging ability

Watched this video of an owner in the UK that states he has experienced neutered fast charging rates in his '18 40 Kwh Leaf after just a couple of quick charges (mind you it is still very cool in the UK). Said that an Ioniq Electric beat his '18 Leaf in a 400 mile road trip by 3 hours (!) due to neutered fast charging. He also said that he would be able to do a 500 mile trip faster in his old Leaf than his new one. Wow. Hopefully no one buying the '18 Leaf plans to take a trip longer than 150 miles. You thought the Bolt's DCFC taper was bad. ;)
