    Anyone ever see a Nissan Altra EV in the US? Curious how the pack held up.

    I didn't find details on any packs still working, but here are some looks back at the Altra:

    I recall reading Nissan had a lot of problems with the lithium packs in the Altras. No time to find a link right now....

    I actually took my license test in the Altra EV. Ill have to see if I have any old pictures. I think I have one of the remotes for the car laying around my house somewhere. It was in a lot of ways very similar to the leaf now except the leaf has a little more bite off the line. The quick charging station we had at my dads house also may still be in the back of the house.
