You can install 2015 battery into 2011 Leaf today, whether you believe it or not.

All that is is a chemistry "fix" for Nissan's disastrous degradation mistake with the first three years of batteries. It really brings nothing else to the party so I would hardly call it an "upgrade..."

Before we start rewriting all the rules, let's see if it can meet a few of them like meet or exceed your stated production goals.

If we are using that as a benchmark, then the Leaf is a huge failure too... It can nowhere even remotely close to meeting the stated sales goals...
