It's not clear what you mean by "all the electronics off a 40kWh battery", but the chemistry is not the same between 24 and 40kWh. I have heard, but cannot confirm, that the chemistry is the same between 30 and 40 kWh.Oilpan4 wrote:What it appears the guys in Ukraine did was take all the electronics off a 40kwh battery and then rewire it with all the stuff that was inside the 24kwh battery, then take it to the dealer and do a battery reset on it.
So you end up with a 40kwh battery that thinks it's a 24kwh battery. All the milestones work off voltage and the 24kwh and 40kwh battery have the same chemistry so all the milestones, everything inbetween full charge charg to turtle works the same. The car will drive a lot further nearly 150 miles before going into turtle mode from a full charge.
