She will select the members of the advisory board that would make recommendations to Nissan. On 17 September , a federal class action lawsuit was filed by California Leaf lessee Humberto Daniel Klee and Arizona Leaf owner David Wallak, accusing Nissan of concealing in its advertising that its Leaf vehicles have a design defect that causes them to prematurely lose battery life and driving range.

In January , Nissan USA announced that it will offer an extended battery warranty on the model year Leaf and will include and model years as well.

A report by insurance company Warranty Direct , stated that of 35, Leafs sold in Europe, three had a battery failure. On 7 July , U. Wallace Tashima of the 9th Circuit U. In March , Nissan is recalling nearly one million vehicles for a problem with the airbags. The occupant classification system OCS may incorrectly think that the passenger seat is empty when it is occupied by an adult, failing to activate the airbag in a collision.

Recall documents say that due to the sensitivity of the OCS software calibration, the system may not sense a passenger. That combined with high-engine vibration at idle when the seat is empty and then becomes occupied, or unusual occupant seating postures, can cause the system to fail.

If the car crashes during this time, the airbag won't deploy. Nissan will notify owners, and dealerships will fix the OCS software free of charge. The Leaf Aero Style exterior has a new front bumper, extended side skirts, restyled mirrors, LED daytime driving lights, and special wheels. The Leaf Nismo uses the Leaf's all-electric drive train with no extra power or performance improvements, but has an aerodynamic body kit with styling influenced by the electric Leaf RC demonstrator, new alloy wheels, and interior improvements.

It is based on the same platform as the Leaf, but it is expected to become Nissan's luxury electric car. It was expected to go into production in Nissan and its joint venture partner Dongfeng Motor unveiled a production version of the Venucia e30 electric car at the Auto Guangzhou. The car was initially scheduled for production in China by The Venucia e30 shares the bodywork, dimensions, electric-drive specifications and several other aspects of the Leaf. Dongfeng Nissan started pilot projects in 15 Chinese cities to promote the Venucia e30 with local governments.

The Venucia e30 was launched in the Chinese market in September In August , Nissan announced its plans to launch several driverless cars by The company is building in Japan a dedicated autonomous driving proving ground, to be completed in Nissan installed its autonomous car technology in a Nissan Leaf for demonstration purposes.

There were 20, pre-orders in the United States for the vehicle's debut. The Leaf has received awards from multiple organizations. Notable awards include the inclusion by Time magazine as one of the 50 best inventions of In , a former Tesla Motors marketing manager criticized Nissan about the cooling system chosen for thermal management in lithium-ion battery packs.

The consumer group also reminded that many older houses could require upgrading the electric service panel to install a volt circuit, which can cost several thousand dollars. One study showed that some of the 30 kWh Nissan Leaf battery packs are degrading at around three times the rate of the 24 kWh variant at 2 years of age. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Awaiting a quick reply…… Please. In checking the Nissan Sri Lanka website nissanlk. If this is the case, my suggestion would be for you not to purchase a LEAF.

If there is no manufacturer support for the vehicle, you will not be able to have it serviced, even for minor repairs or maintenance. Should you move ahead with your decision to purchase a LEAF, Nissan does not recommend using an extension cord with the charging system.

Hi Ernie, very informative post. NissanLK does not sell Leaf due to Charging stations issue. We have a FaceBook group and the feedback are positive and enjoy riding this superb car. I have a question which Ranjan mention above, In my area Daytime temp is 30 Celcius and night Celcius. Is this effect with battery life or health? There is more than 2, Leaf imported and un-registered with Sales outlets. If you need the range of a percent charge every day, then there is no problem charging to percent.

If you do not need the range of a full charge, charging to 80 percent, if your LEAF has that capability, could increase battery life.

Any lithium ion battery will have a reduced life if charged to percent and then not used. In other words, it is not bad for battery life if used soon after charging is completed. Hi, Ernie Let me see if I understand this correctly: If I leave my Leaf in the garage for 4 months while traveling, I should leave it not plugged in to the charger, left with a maximum 80 percent charge, and the 12 volt battery hooked up to a trickle charger? Nissan recommends charging the Li-ion battery once every three months.

If you will be gone for four months, you are exceeding that threshold. It would also be a good idea to trickle charge the 12 volt battery if gone for an extended period of time. Basically, days at a time. Any lithium ion battery, including those in your mobile phones and laptop, degrade at a faster rate if charged to high capacity and left unused. This is why the recommendation to charge to 80 percent. Also significant is the next statement: Allow the battery charge to be below at least 80 percent before charging.

Frequent topping up charging of a highly charged battery is also counter to an extended battery life. A useful resource is batteryuniversity. Some of their most popular pages refer to lithium ion batteries. In general most round trips will be sub 20 miles. Even crossing the road at midday becomes difficult — the air at head level is still at 60C. How well do Leafs handle this kind of thing?

The car can be parasoled when parked but I have to wonder if some kind of forced ventilation is worth considering. Your round trip mileage will be no problem. Of more concern will be the life of the battery. High temperatures contribute to reduced battery life which will likely be a bigger factor for you.

That amount is enough me to two days office travel. My question is ,Is my charging pattern effect to the battery long life? If yes,what is your recommendation?

Thanks and waiting your valuable advice. Your battery charging behavior is fine. The only concern is charging to percent and then not using it for an extended period of time. As long as you are driving it after charging to percent you should be good. We had problems starting our recently purchased Leaf in cold weather. Our auto parts store checked the 12 Volt battery and said it was quite low on charge. We bought a new 12 V battery and I just swithced out the old one for the new one.

Is there some trick to the procedure of changing a 12 V battery for a Leaf. I have changed batteries in gas powered cars many times in the last 50 years.

The 12 volt battery performs the same function in your LEAF as it did in your other cars — it is used to start the car and to run accessories.

There is no special procedure for battery replacement. Thanks for consolidating from MNL. I believe based on my own experience that the recommendation to avoid QCDC is totally wrong. While close to my Leaf battery warranty threshold, using QCDC actuallly conditioned the battery and delayed my warranty exchange for more than a month. It seems that quick charging on a regular basis is fine.

What is not helpful is quick charging multiple times in one day, which raises the battery temp, which could lead to reduced battery life. Have fun wading through this overly long thread, Ernie. Looking forward to your further comments, Ed Reply. Good article, but one sentence is inaccurate: So the battery pack can be higher than ambient, the same, or lower depending on the interaction of several factors: Stoaty, Thanks for the input.

I will edit my original article and reference your comment.
