While the 24 kWh battery is composed of four cells per module (192 cells total), the new 30 kWh battery’s modules contain eight newly designed cells per module (192 cells total). Unlike conventional cylindrical batteries, the thin, compact laminated cells offer more flexibility in packaging and design applications. The 30 kWh battery weighs just 46 pounds more than the 24 kWh battery and has the same battery pack size and footprint.

So basically

- Same number of cells 192

- Double the number of cells per module (8 vs 4)

- So, Half the number of modules (24 vs 48)

- The 30 kWh pack weighs a about 7% more than the 24 kWh pack for 25% more capacity

So, the big question is - what is the size of the new module ? Is it the same size as the old one ... in which case, Nissan can put double the number of cells in the same package more than doubling the '15 range. Infact, if the 30 kWh pack uses only half the modules - if they are same size as the old modules - they can pack 60 kWh in the same space.
