And supposedly, there are some folks in Quebec that have gotten 40 kWh packs to work on 24 kWh cars via an intermediary device (https://mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=567928#p567928). I don't know the details.

They have a success with 30 and 40 kwh. They begin to test with 62 kwh batteries. Physical dimensions seems the bigger challenge.

Thank you! That video was posted recently!

I was told about not only the increase in height but also reduction in ground clearance on the Plus in Jan 2019 at CES: viewtopic.php?p=545740#p545740. So, it's not all that surprising that the battery is measurably taller.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

On the above, they posted a video of a 62 kWh pack mounted and connected to a '15 Leaf w/their CAN gateway box.

They claimed it L2 and "L3" charges fine and they showed a Leaf Spy screen. They didn't say how it drives and how it behaves as it's closer to dead though.
