Nissan LEAF battery reman: fact file

Statistics and details are vital in understanding this Japanese reman story: the Namie factory only refurbishes first-generation Nissan LEAF batteries, produced from 2010 to 2017 - and only works on domestic units. LEAF batteries in foreign markets such as the US and the European Union do not undergo remanufacturing in Japan. A grand total of 289,146 first-generation LEAF cars (battery configuration: four cells x 48 modules) have been made. Of these, 81,632 were sold in Japan. First-generation LEAF batteries (pictured left) generate 24kHw of power; at cruising speed, 2010 models had a range of 200km. By 2017, with years of gradual improvements, that range had increased to 400km. The latest generation of LEAFs are driven by a more potent eight-cell battery (pictured below), each consisting of 24 modules; they produce 40kHw of power.
