Default Nissan Half Way Done on Battery Pack

Don't know how I missed this. I guess I just assumed when they added heating for the battery they would also provide cooling, but apparently that is not the case. There is no cooling for the Leaf battery pack.

Nissan recommends that you not have the battery in 120f ambient conditions for more than 24 hours. Doing could constitute abuse of the battery and void the warranty.

Couple this with the fact Nissan's warranty apparently does not guarantee any sort of range performance for the battery. Only that it will be able to deliver energy sufficient for the motor to achieve its max rated power. So if the motor can still put out its rated wattage, but for only 50 miles instead of 100, Nissan considers its obligation met. Those of you living in Arizona, Texas, etc. will be at the tender mercy of Nissan should the pack wane prematurely.

GM's warranty is reported to guarantee at least 70% of original range over the 8 year warranty.

As ever, no word from Ford on what their warranty guarantees specifically. Would be a good question for their battery guys chat today at 1pm.

Since the car is highly powered with batteries why wouldn't they fit the car with kinetic energy system? This would help the car faster and greener at the same time.

Please explain what you mean by a kinetic energy system. If you mean flywheel storage, energy desity is much lower than batteries.

Kinetic energy is the force bound inactively and whenever required we can convert it into the other forms.
