Here's the data I dug up on the battery from a Nissan press release last year:
Type: Laminated lithium-ion battery
Total capacity (kWh): 24
Power output (kW): Over 90 (the motor is 80kW)
Number of modules: 48 (192 cells)
Battery pack contents:
-Positive electrodes – Lithium manganate
-Negative electrodes – Carbon
Another quip from this forum:
Comparing it to the Chevy Volt battery, " While both packs are basically LiMn2O4, the LG Chem battery does blend in some nickel and cobalt, which presumably we won't see in the Nissan battery until Gen II."
