I'm in a hot climate (Fresno, CA). At the 12 month check up, Nissan said I was "over 99%" on my battery.
Am glad that this is a leased vehicle, I'll surely be turning it back for the another BEV in 2 years. It has been a great vehicle for me, I love it.
Have an update here. Still only 1 bar down, with 50,500 miles. I ended up buying the car last year when Nissan offered $8k off the residual. My out the door price was $6000 on a 36,000 mile, 3 year old car.
So, no QC (does not exist on the car), mostly Level 2 charges 50/50 to 80% and 100%.
I did not go back for the 3 year owner pay battery checkup. I have been expecting to lose another bar anytime.
