And now also the throttled fast charging issue.Considering the recent test that showed pretty poor range drop in cold weather for the 2018 LEAF, might be a few hanging out for this.
I am mainly interested to see how a 2019 LEAF with propilot compares in price to a Model 3 standard battery with autopilot
I can't speak for Nissan, but my theory is that GM Bolt is basically a 60kWh version of a 40kWh Renault. The Renault is basically a 44kw start taper, 22kW end taper chargeing car - so the GM bolt is a 66kW start taper 33kw end taper type car.
So yes, i predict TMS LG 60kWH nissan leaf will charge very similar to a GM bolt.
Nissan’s Japanese language twitter account, but none of their other regional twitter accounts, posted a link for a live YouTube stream set for this afternoon to carry a press conference about a “high performance” model of the LEAF.
The time is apparently set for 5pm Pacific, although clicking the link to the video indicates the stream could start a bit earlier.
However, Doi says Nissan has learned a lot in the almost decade of the LEAF and now believes that, even with the tighter pack, batteries will keep their capacity longer than ever. Nissan offers a 8 years/160,000 km (whichever occurs first) warranty on the battery
Nope. Electrek got that bit wrong, according to Nissan.The battery pack cells are made by LG
Over the past year or two there has been widespread speculation that when Nissan announced a new 60-something kWh battery upgrade it would rely on cells from LG. Not true.
