  3. "Battery lifespan": Capacity loss vs battery failure

    General EV Discussion
    When people say that the lifespan of a Leaf's battery is 8 - 10 years, do that mean that the car will not be able to move after that time? Or are they talking about loss of useful range, like the 70% capacity loss that Nissan talk about?

    Nissan Leaf40
    I was talking about this on FB so I'm posting it here while the idea is fresh in my mind. ________________ There's so much wasted space, they could easily have fitted water cooling in there, with an external radiator behind the front air scoop. Maybe someone will do a retrofit. It can't be a...
