That doesn't sound like what a dealer would tell you :lol:
Hmmm, interesting comment. I have yet to accurately determine the outer boundaries of the "lesser" dealers...

:lol:

It's funny how little dealers know about the cars they sell. Until you have to buy something from them :|

That battery is only as good as its weakest cell. The main pack is already a 4 bar loser. How well this whole pack is balanced would be my concern. All that it takes is the weakest cell(s) going below BMS threshold to make the car not move even when it looks or appears as though you have lots of capacity.
*2011 Leaf 1 bought 2/28/15 @ 28,000ish mi 10 bar (8 bars @ 11/25/15 @ 37,453 ) (New lizard @ 39,275 mi @ 1/20/2016) Now 52,166 mi.
*Tesla Model S 61,000 mi
*2011 Leaf 2 bought 4/28/15 @ 24,000ish mi 12 bar (new lizard Dec. 2014 @ 22,273 mi) Now 35,485 mi

Some one mentioned 30KWH compatibility with 24KWH earlier. Apparently 40KWH packs uses exactly the same cells modules size and arrangement just higher power density, so they interchangeable, but not the Control Unit. Folks already upgraded 24KWH with 30 KWH battery as a complete unit though. So Control Unit from 30 KWH battery will interface with older Leafs, no problem if you have access to Nissan Diagnostic tool to initialize it. No words on 40 KWH battery upgrade yet.

Battery capacity is measured in kWh, not "KW".

There is a company that will be offering Leaf Replacement batteries with lots more range, up to 65 kwh too. Fenix Energy, they are going to be taking mine as a test mule, donating for 2 years and I will have to lease something in between, but should be well over 200 miles of range. WIll be about the same as the Nissan batteries but with liquid cooling they will last a good long time.
