If that turns out to be true, and the end of the matter, I really am finished with Nissan. I will never buy a car from them again, EVER. They had a chance to do the smart thing, and offer the 30 kWh pack to use early adopters, even at a healthy profit to themselves, and it looks like they don't want bothered with it.Bufordleaf wrote:In the comments section of his article on greencarreports, John Voelcker says he asked about backward compatibility of the 30 kWh pack into older MY Leafs and a Nissan exec told him NO, but declined to give any specific reasons. IMO this is a huge PR blunder by Nissan and a real dissappointment.
Also, did anyone else notice the wackiness with the quoted charge times for the 3.3 kW charger? Its listed as "4 hours" at 220 (240) volt, whereas the 6.6 kW charge time is listed as "5 hours" for the same 24 kWh battery. I think the 3.3 kW should be more like 8 hours.
