Very nice! These remain surprisingly linear - looks like extrapolation should be valid outside this range.
I know! Personally I'm shocked it's still 10 clicks per degree C all the way down to 0C.. I would have thought for sure the nonlinearity of the thermistor would have resulted in 12 or 13 clicks per degree C down in the colder realm (as it is confirmed 8 or 9 on the hot side). Could it be the Leaf's own temperature calcs are lazily linear? And in the end, do we care what the real temps are or what the trigger points for things like temp bars and battery heaters is?
I suppose the curvature may be there but Nissan decided a linear fit was good enough. We should sanity check the result against an independent thermometer at several points.
