Source? Which vehicles? Can it be done today or has it been possible since 2014?

The battery is under the car. Even on 24 kWh Leafs ('11 to '15), the pack is over 600 pounds.

See pictures at https://www.nfpa.org/-/media/Files/Trai ... ashx?la=en for more context.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
