Software fix for 2016-17 Nissan Leafs may improve battery range

Software fix for 2016-17 Nissan Leafs may improve battery range

In March we told you about a study of a small group of 2016 and 2017 Nissan Leaf models equipped with the larger, 30-kwh battery pack that had abnormal battery degradation.

That study concluded that nearly four out of five of the larger battery packs examined lost cell capacity three times faster than earlier 24-kwh battery packs that were studied.

This week, Nissan said it would issue a software update for the battery controllers to help stem the power loss. The software fix was  reported by Clean Fleet Report.
