Accelerated reported battery capacity loss in 30 kWh variants of the Nissan Leaf

In a new study, 283 Nissan Leafs manufactured between 2011 and 2017 have been analyzed with respect to the battery capacity fade. The authors of the investigation conclude, that a faster rate of decline in the state-of-health (SoH) for the 30 kWh variants over the 24 kWh variants is detected. Some of the 30 kWh variants had already lost 20 % of the battery capacity after only two years of operation. Read the full paper here:
