That doesn't sound like what a dealer would tell you :lol:


Hmmm, interesting comment. I have yet to accurately determine the outer boundaries of the "lesser" dealers...



:lol:

It's funny how little dealers know about the cars they sell. Until you have to buy something from them :|

You know how you can tell if a car salesman is lying to you....











His lips are moving.

No, they actually like lying over email even more.

That battery is only as good as its weakest cell. The main pack is already a 4 bar loser. How well this whole pack is balanced would be my concern. All that it takes is the weakest cell(s) going below BMS threshold to make the car not move even when it looks or appears as though you have lots of capacity.

Some one mentioned 30KWH compatibility with 24KWH earlier. Apparently 40KWH packs uses exactly the same cells modules size and arrangement just higher power density, so they interchangeable, but not the Control Unit. Folks already upgraded 24KWH with 30 KWH battery as a complete unit though. So Control Unit from 30 KWH battery will interface with older Leafs, no problem if you have access to Nissan Diagnostic tool to initialize it. No words on 40 KWH battery upgrade yet.

Battery capacity is measured in kWh, not "KW".
