It almost seems like your dealer messed up the replacement and put in the larger pack by mistake.
I'm thinking this, too, since the car is reporting a SOC of 150%.
Incase this is a true 40kWh battery, let's hope they put the correct conversion software, otherwise charging it is going to be interesting to say the least.

If I were OP I would call them and ask more about it.

This was taken after driving 10 miles from dealership. I will charge Thursday night. What should I capture after that charge?

This is taken later, says I have 35 kw-hr left?
That can't be correct. The first image implies 100+ KWH ( 262ah*393v=102.966 KWH). Drive the car for a couple of days and see how far you can get on a charge. The second image seems more reasonable and does imply a 40KWH battery. I think the BMS is confused. Drive the car for a couple of weeks and see if the BMS spits out more reasonable numbers. In any case, the actual range you get from driving down the battery will tell the truth.

CaliLeaf: What are all the part nos of parts used for your battery pack replacement? That should be very revealing. For example, a 40kWh pack even requires a different set of covers than the 24kWh pack, I think. They should have provided this information on your invoice.

There are some reddit threads lighting up now saying that Nissan is going to swap to 40 batteries for warranty 30 replacements.

They may have been waiting for virtually all of the 24kwh packs' warranties to expire - although a 2016 24kwh pack would still qualify, along with those with late in-service dates...

Initially I assumed the OP had a 24kWh pack from the post details, but I was probably wrong.
When Calileaf wrote s/he had an SE s/he probably meant not an S but either an SV or SL, both of which had 30kWh battery packs (the S had a 24kWh pack). These battery packs have 8 yr/100,000 mile warranties which would explain why the dealer would replace them (under warranty) at 71,000 miles and might explain why less information about the replacement was given to the owner.

As I understand it, the covers are specific to battery generation, not to capacity. That is, all batteries made in 2011/2012 have different covers from those in 2013+, but the covers remained the same until the Leaf+ (62 kwh packs).

Is there someone with more expertise that can confirm?

:evil: The 11-12 cars have a tan/beige case, and 13-later have a black case. These are the only colors

I’ve got photos of them from my JDM factory floor visits.

Or maybe different colors entirely. The battery swappers here will know.
