It was never Nissan's claim that it cured capacity loss.


Except that what I wrote is "capacity loss problem" - NOT "capacity loss." You can choose to interpret that as "all capacity loss" but that would be silly. Just read it in context.


I think we can all agree the term capacity loss implies permanence which obviously was not the case. At least we are back to where the 24 kwh packs left off where some will do great, some will do good and others should have their heads examined for choosing a LEAF.

But is the car to blame? I know a HUGE fan of the Prius who tried for years to make it work in Phoenix and failed. He now drives a... well something (VW I think) that burns liquid fuel. So its not just Nissan. Cars in general suffer there.

You must be kidding.

When > 50% reach 10 years old and have at least 80% of new battery capacity remaining, we can say "some will do good."
For now, I'll guess that 80% are below 80% by year 3.
