The long life mode was discontinued here in North America in 2014, but the behavior you describe is, if I remember correctly, normal. Are you using NisanConnect to activate the climate control, or are you using the climate control timer? Whichever way you are doing it, I suggest that you try the other way. It may well make no difference, but it won't hurt to try.

Strange. I have only done it through app.
This is in Norway.

We'll have to wait for a few more responses - preferably from EU members. As I remember it, activating the climate control will also activate charging if the car is plugged in.

As LeftieBiker said, the 80% option was discontinued in 2014, but I remember that my 2011 would start charging if climate control was activated either by timer or app so it would then charge at least as long as climate control was on.

Nothing abnormal.
When 80% is reached EVSE is switched off.
If HVAC is activated while plugged in, it will activate HV system (including battery drain/charge).
So any deviation above or below 80% is normal.

80% has not been discontinued in EU.
Short range EVs <30kWh -- Medium range: 30-60kWh -- Long range: >60kWh
Charging: Trickle <3kW -- Normal 3-22kW -- Fast 50-100kW -- Supercharging >100kW
