And more excuses here about how, yes TMS would have saved these packs, but we should support nissan in not using them because down the road, at some unknown future point, TMS won't be needed, so let's pretend that day is today even if we're scorching the batteries and noticing significant loss of range in one, two, three years.
premature statement based on a few outliers with 2015 build dates used to speculate on a car that has not even hit the streets.
You can't be serious. The number of cars with missing bars across all years is legion. I know you know that, so your post is baffling but I don't want to accuse you of being disingenuous yet. Nissan fooled some people with Gen 1 over multiple years. Until they can prove 2+ years into Gen 2 that their batteries hold up, the safe route is to assume once again that they won't.
I am COMPLETELY SERIOUS. What have we seen over the years?
Huge degradation slowly addressed to where the Lizard battery did make measurable strides. I can post testimonials if you like.
Then Nissan changes the battery. new electrodes, tweaked this, tweaked that and what happens? First 30 kwh packs off the line built late 2015 are losing bars like crazy. Another guy in AZ this morning has already lost THREE! in 14,000 miles. Doesn't live in Phoenix but doesn't matter that much, its still hot. BUT we have 2015 owners with older cars, smaller battery packs, AND in pretty hot climates not seeing anything like it. But their packs were mature; presumably at the top of where that tech could go.
But the 30 kwh packs are brand new tech. So how anyone is not seeing this is quite shocking to me. But then again, we shall see...
