Nissan could have followed GM's lead and offered a "Hilltop Mode" that would have limited charge to 85% or so. That wouldn't have 'affected EPA certification' any more than it did for GM, and would have helped extend the life of a pack with a very uncertain future, given how poorly the 30kwh version is doing. Now Nissan will see Leaf drivers going to the Bolt because Nissan couldn't be bothered to add a hilltop mode or to retain the top display screen. At the very least this means I'll be riding out my $159 lease until I either see a lease offer from Nissan that reflects the diminished value of the car to me, or I'll lease a Bolt and fix the driver's seat myself.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.
