Check Out Part 1 Of Bjorn’s #Rapidgate 2018 Nissan LEAF Livestream
Bjorn is calling this three-part live series: Nissan LEAF #Rapidgate test.
For the Nissan LEAF enthusiasts out there, this live stream series is packed with information. However, be advised that Bjorn has included hours of unedited footage.
We’ve also attached the live stream link below. It was underway at the time of writing, but that may change. We will keep you posted on the recorded versions of Part 2 and 3 of the series as they come in. Thus far, Bjorn is nearly five hours in and beginning Part 2.
Bjorn’s journey will cover 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) and temps are currently -3 Celsius (26.6 Fahrenheit) or thereabouts.
For those unfamiliar with the “Rapidgate” situation, it relates to issues being reported about the all-new 2018 Nissan LEAF’s inability to fast charge after the first few sessions. It’s still a fairly new discovery, so press related to it is just beginning to ramp up.
The other reported issue with the LEAF has always been its lack of a Thermal Management System (TMS) for the battery pack. Some believe that this may lead to accelerated battery degradation.
Lastly, to add insult to injury, new reports claim that the 30 kWh battery pack degrades more quickly than the 24 kWh pack. Will this hold true for the new 40 kWh pack?
Let’s keep our eyes on Bjorn’s trip and see what he finds out.
