This may surprise some folks.

Over the past year or two there has been widespread speculation that when Nissan announced a new 60-something kWh battery upgrade it would rely on cells from LG. Not true.

Many are most unsatisfied with the continued cheaper battery path Nissan continues to take with no active thermal management. Plenty of theories abound for this decision.

Our 2016 30kWh Leaf SV lease is up in April. We got a great deal on that lease and have to imagine the low quality battery packs had a lot to do with it. That's a big problem for those who live in warm climates and didn't get a great deal on their lease or purchase. It's also lousy for those who want to keep the vehicle for many years but the range becomes insufficient for their needs.

That makes it a poor value for some, but great for others like ourselves. Hoping the e-Plus will push down lease prices further for the 40kWh battery trims when our lease is up, in which case we may go with another lease.

Will there be updated CHAdeMO in the US that will supply that faster rate? I suspect given it's success in Japan, it might happen there.


I have no idea, I only see CHAdeMO at the Nissan dealership or when there are combo chargers at the malls and libraries around here.

I'd be surprised if Nissan deployed a bunch of infrastructure in the US but you never know.

Is the Level 2 charging still at 6.6 kW or did they upgrade it to 7,2 kW for the 62 kWh battery?

EVGO has said they will implement as it becomes available which likely means as stations break such. EA has only said they would upgrade CCS without mentioning chademo so....?
