Here is your chance to take advantage of my irrationality: Choose a wager of $250 - $500. I say that a Nissan approved, Nissan dealership installation of a 30 kWh pack into a 24 kWh LEAF has not happened as of 1/5/2017.

Another guess: you will have a line of people hoping to take you up on the same wager.

Terms:
Documentation proves your side
The wager money will be placed with a 3rd party

P.s.,
For some reason internet loud-mouths have never accepted my offers of a wager in the past, but my fingers are crossed you are the first!


I'd be in on this bet, but how do you prove the negative? Unless/until you can hunt down every possible case of a 30kWh battery in a 24kWh LEAF, lorenfb can always refuse to ante-up on the premise that it has happened, you just haven't done your homework well enough!

To recap:
Documentation proves his side. No documentation from him, he loses the wager.
The documentation is a dealership invoice/work order that says that a 30 kWh battery was put into a VIN that came with a 24 kWh battery when new.

I don't wish to lawyer him. If the replacement happened, he wins.

I just had a 48 kwh battery installed in my 2011 Nissan Leaf for a nominal fee. Let me check around for the paperwork, I may have misplaced it. Will get back to you shortly. Perhaps we can do a range test in a few months, I will let you know.

PS Turns out the paperwork ended up in the recycle bin, so I can't prove it for now. ;)

I removed the back seats in my LEAF and managed to squeeze the battery from a wrecked P100D in there (had to fold it in half to make it fit). I can drive 2000 miles on a single charge now.

I don't really believe it, but I first must call every Nissan dealer world wide and ask if they have done it, before I can declare my skepticism! ;)

Wow, I wish I had thought of that!!! Any problems with leakage of the cooling fluid (from the battery folding)? Was Tesla willing to continue the battery warranty until 8 years/100,000 miles? Any concerns about the Tesla battery burning out the puny Leaf motor? Was the Tesla wrecked because the autopilot malfunctioned and drove the car into a ditch, or was it operator error?

I've used something I've not before on a thread in this forum the 'unsub' tool. If you need to it's at the top, has a wrench or spanner icon for the dropdown menu, or just use the last link in the email notifications. either way seems to do the job.

Highly suspicious as this is the price people paid for a 24kWh replacement pack. Considering the 30kWh S model is more expensive than its 24kWh predecessor the cost for a 30kWh pack installed should be in the 7-8k range.


I agree that the dealer is probably wrong AND the "retail value" of the 30 kwh pack is higher but I DOUBT the 30 kwh pack is more expensive for Nissan to build. In fact, pretty sure it is not even close
