Too bad NCTC doesn’t work in Dallas/Ft. Worth. We only have Chargepoint and Blink stations, and neither support NCTC.

Per https://www.ez-charge.com/participating-networks/ Blink does support your city.

I think the key is not every charger in that city has to support NCTC so some blink will and some blink won’t.

Yeah they really need to release the 60KwH version soon. This won’t make a difference.

Also an upgrade path for existing owners would be nice.

Even if they don’t actually sell many upgrades for existing owners, it could help promote the brand name to future potential buyers.

60 kWh don’t fit in the old. You see it in some picutres the battery is hanging out 3-5 inch more. Would be not good if the battery touch down with lower ground clearance. 40 kWh battery would fit probably.

The 60 kWh battery is actually just a little bit larger. In terms of volume, it would probably be possible to stuff 50 kWh into the existing pack form factor. The question isn’t if it is technically feasible (it is), but whether it makes any business sense. It would be fun to see a good estimate of the total cost per pack for Nissan (development, testing, manufacture, distribution) at different volumes. The labor to install a new pack is significant, but it’s not a gigantic job (owners who got replacements under warranty had the car serviced in one day). I’m guessing that at volume it’d cost Nissan at least $5-6k per pack all in all. With a reasonable markup we’d be at $8k to the dealership. Add $1000 in labor (at least) and the dealership’s markup, and we’re in the ballpark of $10k. Of course, this isn’t the good estimates I’d love to see, just my finger-in-the-air guesswork. But if I’m right, it seems such an upgrade could be sold if lots of existing owners would be interested at a cost of ten grand. I own a 2012 LEAF and have to say I doubt I’d buy an upgrade to… Read more »

Ha! Still not offered in Canada, eh?
Pitty!

I am visiting family in Cincinnati this weekend. I had previously looked at the charging infrastructure here and it left a lot to be desired. Now it looks pretty good. I have family in Dayton also. Now you can make it from anywhere in Cincinnati to Dayton and back, even in a Leaf. NRG has several fast charge stations at Walmart stores just off the I-275 loop and the I-75 on the way to Dayton.

Nissan has no interest in Canada, I’ve approached and inquired to Nissan Canada several times, maybe you would rather have a versa?
