40 kw-hr battery in 2016 leaf

Wed Jan 22, 2020 8:11 pm

Dealer just replaced my battery in 2016 Leaf SE. Range said 168 miles when I got in. Drove 10 miles and now it says 155. Are they putting 40 kw-hr batteries in now as replacements?

Car has 71k miles, battery was down to 61% SOH.

I think that you'll find the range estimate getting back to where your car was when new, in a few days, or two weeks at most.

How many amp-hours (in the screen that shows SOH and Hx) does Leaf Spy show? How many gids on a full charge?

At 92%, it was 262 amp-hr. SOC is 150%.

I'm afraid it will be at 40% battery and die on me.

If the car is behaving normally now, it isn't likely to die. That would be great, if they had switched to 40kwh packs as replacements...

Have the part number for the pack on the receipt?

262 amp-hours sounds wrong. My 11 bar 24 kWh car is 52.99 AHr. Can you put up a screenshot of that screen? You can upload it to https://imgur.com/ and obscure your VIN, if you wish.

That would be amazing. It means they are out of the smaller batteries and its just cheaper to move to 40s.

If true, this would be news worthy, and oddly hugely positive for Nissan's brand. Please provide screen shots.

This was taken after driving 10 miles from dealership. I will charge Thursday night. What should I capture after that charge?

This is taken later, says I have 35 kw-hr left?

Those pictures look really promising! We've heard from a couple forum members who were able to upgrade older Leafs to 40kWh packs themselves, so it's definitely possible. For Nissan to be quietly upgrading the packs is HUGE, but also a little strange. I mean, why wouldn't they be advertising this loudly? It almost seems like your dealer messed up the replacement and put in the larger pack by mistake.

I'm thinking this, too, since the car is reporting a SOC of 150%.
