Not surprising... even if I leave my 24 kWh Leaf outside at night for many hours, it will only cool by a few degrees F (say 3 to 5 F) if outside air temp is much cooler than battery temp (e.g. OAT at 60 F or lower and batter temps at say 75 F).
I accidentally left my Leaf out last night and battery temps went from about 74 F at past midnight to about 64 or 65 F at ~8:15 am. IIRC, OATs got no lower than mid to high 50's.
Left the house @ 6:30 this morning, car was charging pre-dawn hours on 6.6KW and was to @ 90% SOC when unplugged to leave. Air temp was 78, was running late so didn’t mess with leafspy but noticed the temp gauge was still 1 click to the right of center so likely 95 F or slightly higher. Bet this will be toast this afternoon.
Might lose two or three days of battery life today, rather than just one.
Let me continue your sentence --
Might lose two or three days of battery life today, rather than just one PNW day
When the current heat wave passes, he will be back to a leisurely daily loss of 1.5 - 2x PNW day
