Tesla's choice is one of the best. Nissan's choice was not.
Even though this slide wasn't exactly about voltage cells kept at, it gives the idea.

Nissan's official recommendation is 80% anywhere EPA didn't intervene.
Also EPA intervention is questionable (what about Tesla's slider, what EPA did with Model S range? which percent was chosen?)
Leaf literally has a tick box Battery Long Life Mode
. There are PEOPLE (at dealers for example)
saying a lot of things. But they are nobody in terms of information value.
But that button was made by people who made the car.
Tesla gives an option to choose whatever between 50% and 90%. Jeff told us (and showed data) to choose the low end. End of story.
Can't extrapolate in any way that this doesn't apply to chemistry that degrades faster.
Liquid cooling loop has little to do with shelf life actually (time when vehicle is not used). Tesla hardly cools the battery.
Chemistry is often between 35-50C. No active cooling.
Conclusion: according to what we know, Leaf is not less sensitive to higher SOC degradation compared to Tesla.
Recommendation to charge closer to 50% was not Tesla specific.
And it was given by a person whose information is more valuable/grounded than our opinions combined.
Tesla's slider clearly states "Daily". SC has nothing to do with daily usage scenario.
