Have you heard of any 30 to 40 battery swaps by Nissan in the last 4-5 months?
I bought a 2016 leaf sv 30kwh that had its battery swapped in may. it seems to be a refurbished 40kwh pack with around 92% capacity, 4 cells are higher than the rest. i made a post about that. i've gotten just barely 150 miles on a charge, so im happy with it, in the winter it should perform well.
already tried calling Nissan about the 4 higher cells and they told me unless it has degradation on the dash, they wont look at the higher cells and they "don't understand how i got that information from the car", so they don't seem to care about the battery so long as the battery swap fulfills the warranty, which only requires the car to be brought back up to 9 bars from 8 if its degraded. I wonder if these 40kwh packs in the 30kwh cars have different capacity bar %'s, meaning it would keep 12 bars of capacity on the dash until the 40kwh pack goes below 65% soh which would be about 26kwh.
