I am questioning your assumption that modification of an existing 24 kwh platform to a 30 kwh platform is just as easy as a purposefully built S30
I'm saying that doing a mid-year change from a 24kwh battery to a 30kwh battery on an existing model means that it is not impossible to do the change to earlier models. Nissan says no to anyone asking, but has not said it is not possible to do.
you are aware that a Nissan employee already stated that it could be done, right?
Yes, I read that somewhere. Since you are aware of this, why are you questioning my assumption that it can be done?
The BMS, which would be different, is inside the battery pack. The pack is designed to put out voltage in a specific range. If the connector was changed, the biggest hindrance would be the wiring harness between the battery pack and the car. The major thing stopping this from being done is Nissan, since they control the ability to pair the battery packs to the cars.
