I had some questions the service lady couldn't answer.
1. Will the battery be new or refurbished?
2. Will the battery be the same 30KW battery design with the same capacity issues or something more advanced?
Nissan has a lot of wiggle room. You will know for sure what they decided when you get the car back, but a 40 kWh pack seems likely based on what Nissan has done lately in N. America. The warranty language is that Nissan has to restore your pack to 9 bars in whatever manner they see fit, using their current pack tech. That is a low bar, but presumably due to practical inventory considerations Nissan has been giving more. YMMV. Worse case, it could be a used, crappy 9 bar 30 kWh pack. Second worse case, it could be a crappy 40 kWh pack that failed QA. Best case, you get a new, 'standard' 40 kWh pack.
