All that is is a chemistry "fix" for Nissan's disastrous degradation mistake with the first three years of batteries. It really brings nothing else to the party so I would hardly call it an "upgrade..."

which only illustrates the obvious that is not Tesla centric in that EVs are not "your father's car" and will rewrite the rules that automakers will grudgingly follow

If we are using that as a benchmark, then the Leaf is a huge failure too... It can nowhere even remotely close to meeting the stated sales goals...
