New study finds that 30-kwh battery decline is steep
A new study of 283 Leaf batteries, has recently discovered than there is a higher rate of cell capacity loss in the 30-kwh battery packs than what was found in the 24kwh batteries. At two years of age, the average rate of decline for 20kWh Leafs was 9.9% a year. That's roughly three times the rate of decline from what was found in 24kWH Leafs, which averaged 3.1% a year. Obviously these findings are up to interpretation, as we don't know how exactly the batteries were tested. Regardless its something that current and future Leaf owners may want to keep an eye on.
