Anyone ever see a Nissan Altra EV in the US? Curious how the pack held up.
Some info on the Altra, I guess they were not actually sold, but leased.
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....
A decade old not very aero and same range as the Leaf!
From the rental link:

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.
bbejj, I like that. welcome to TMC.
