It's hard to tell from the article, but is Nissan just stuffing more batteries in the Leaf or have they increased the power density by nearly a factor of 3?

Sweet, Looks like the energy density increased to match competitors. Question is if they'll be as cheap as the old leafs. I wonder if this change in energy density will make them less safe than the current ones.

Does anyone know if Nissan proprietary owns the rights to the battery chemistry? I heard LG makes their cells. If we track down who is making these cells maybe we could just buy the batteries directly.

I mean hybrid auto center has to be getting these batteries somewhere, and they're getting them cheap enough to sell them at profit!

Very cool, I am glad they updated the design. The only thing I didn't like is the self drive, don't need it, don't want it.
