Pretty tough to watch a presentation given in 2013 when you're developing/testing a battery that went in a commercial production vehicle in 2010
Having said that, the video/information is interesting and valuable, but we've debated ad nauseum (in other threads) the 1000's of decisions Nissan had to make in building the car. I also maintain that when battery capacities are on the order of a Tesla and beyond
, losing some capacity--either temporarily due to cold temps, or permanently due to hot temps--won't be such a killer.
And don't start the "Tesla has a TMS so it must be better" argument, because they HAD to based on the battery chemistry type they chose, or they would be having even more fires than they already do (there was another reported a couple of days ago).
