This is simply not true. The '13-15 LEAF modules are exactly the same size as the '11-12 LEAF modules. And they are lighter than the '13-15 LEAF modules.
Ignore the variance in SOC% when charging to "100%". It simply varies a decent amount, especially if you charge from above 80% to 100% - it won't get to the normal ~95% reported SOC. The LBC gets confused.
Instead of looking at the SOC%, just look at the pack voltage. If it's 393-394V at rest you're good and have 100% charge. Now, the '13+ LEAFs will charge to a slightly higher pack voltage than the '11-12 LEAFs - primarily because they will spend a decent amount of time topping off the pack where the '11-12 LEAFs cut off pretty quick once the charge rate gets down under 1000W or so, but the '13+ LEAFs will spend quite a bit of time pushing in a few hundred watts. As a result, the pack voltage will typically be about 1V higher than the earlier LEAFs.
So you have gone this far... please explain the extra support bracket that has to be used on the 11-12 to accommodate the larger pack as I was told. I would be curious to hear your explanation. There have been rumblings that the battery energy density may have been changed in the 13+. I for one haven't really accepted that yet, but it could answer some anomalies. I would like you to name your source that the batteries haven't changed. Also, keep in mind, a change in energy density doesn't have to mean a VISABLE difference either.
