What kind of driving history are you seeing and what section are you in? That has never worked in the app for me.
Reports & Activity -> My EV -> Electricity Usage Records

A minor bug is that, for me at least, the dates appear to be entered using Japan's time zone.

Interesting, everything under Reports & Activity has always been without data for me.

Last time I was able to update battery status was 15 Apr at 1711 PDT. Since then it clocks for two minutes, then silently fails. What is it about auto maker infotainment systems and mobile apps, that they have to uniformly suck?

I’m not sure who their vendors are, but that is a big part of it.

I have a similar problem. My app last updated on April 15, 2019 at 8:58 PM. It won't update to a more recent status and today's charge (as of April 18).

As a result, I cannot tell whether the charge is complete, etc.

I have a notification on my phone, saying that the Nissan servers will be down (heh!) Sunday 4/21, from 7:00pm (EST?) to 10PM, for an upgrade.

I got the same notification, as well as an email response to me asking what was up (or, you know, not) with their systems. Seems they're having issues. (maybe they use Wipro devs?)

For what it's worth, I've found the free iPhone app "EVA" is still able to access my Leaf's current charge level, even though the NissanConnect EV app isn't. That app can pretty much only get the state of charge and remotely start climate control, though.

Thanks for the tip: I've never seen/used that app!
I find it fascinating that it currently works while the Nissan app doesn't. I also like how it tells you when it's communicating with the server...then the car.
