oh i dont mind if you disagree. disagreement and different POVs are is the value of this forum. there has been many times i thought for sure I and others were right only to be proven wrong.surfingslovak wrote:Right, I suppose that's possible, and they have proven to be working very diligently, albeit quietly. That said, I choose not to believe in this theory. I hope you don't mind. I took enough flak for trying to raise awareness last May, and even more so in the subsequent months. Although the right hand might not know what the left hand is doing when it comes to large corporations, I have to think that there was at least one element of surprise in the mix. It might not have necessarily been battery performance though.DaveinOlyWA wrote:i edited my post because had to look for a link but i think it not wise to think that Nissan just started working on the problem when we brought it to their attention. despite what they have claimed, I fully believe they knew about the issues way in advance and had been working on a solution for a long time
I had a look at the GCR article you referenced above, and I believe that Ghosn was referring to the Mk2 battery there. He specifically mentioned lower manufacturing costs, and the MK2 battery and its modified packaging would fit the bill.

in fact, for a lot of things, i want to be proven wrong. it only helps me. Only a fool would be upset when others pointed out their mistakes.
either way, it is only a few weeks away now.
