Pls. don't derail it into techno thread only, there are other active posts for that in this very forum.
I'll only add here that it's indeed great there are varied approaches to it (Tesla, GM-Voltec, Nissan-Renault), they pursue different goals, power envelopes and market segments.
Where in the world are you from, Mesuge? Can you buy a Leaf or should you be beating on someone on a 'my Renault' forum?
Jess has clearly stated that she's told us what she can and will tell more when she knows it.
Nissan has published plenty of tech data, as has the battery manufacturer (AESC).
There are other web sites that give plenty of detail on what a LiMn cells is, how it acts, how it's charged, lifespan, and other details. That's engineering stuff - not 'joe consumer' stuff - and it's not likely we'll be able to get that level of information from ANY Nissan rep hired to work with the public - even after the car's been on the road for years.
I've been involved with engine oil specifications and testing. A dealer rep or customer service person WILL tell a customer which product to use (or which standard to look for), and when they recommend changing the oil - but will no
t and/or can not
tell them what's in the oil, how it's made, or give away any other info that would help a competitor use the results of their time, technology, and/or experience for free.
The next info release is scheduled for June - you're likely to have to wait for news just like the rest of us.
