Nissan Leaf Battery Defect Investigation

01.05.2021

Our consumer protection attorneys are investigating claims of a possible defect in Nissan Leaf vehicle batteries.

Drivers of Nissan Leafs with 40 kWh batteries have reported delays with “quick charging.” They have described that, after repeated charging sessions, the rate of charging using Nissan’s “quick charge” system significantly slows, resulting in longer charging times or limited battery range.

More Details on Nissan Leaf Battery Defect

Nissan advertises a “quick charge” option for its electric cars as the fastest way to charge the battery, representing that this system allows drivers to “charge in a flash.” A form of electric vehicle charging, Nissan’s “quick charge” technology delivers a direct charge to the vehicle’s battery, purportedly resulting in significantly increased charging speeds.

Nissan Leaf owners have experienced a charging delay while on road trips, when they had occasion to “quick charge” their vehicles more than once. The second or third rapid charge would take substantially longer than the first, forcing drivers to either delay their trips by several hours or limit their driving to a reduced range per charge.

In July 2019, Nissan released a software update for North American owners and lessees of 2018 and 2019 Nissan Leafs which it stated would resolve the charging delays. But Nissan instructed technicians to install this software only if customers complained of the issue, and reports indicate that the software update offers only a temporary solution and may damage the battery.
