Interesting video. It appears that my SL+ is doing as well as the Model 3 since current "Gid" reading at full charge is 96.30% of new, current AHr reading is 94.43% of new, and current SOH reading is 94.44% of new after 17 months and 25,707 miles of use.
My Model 3 is at 101% of new at 30 months old.
There does seem to be mounting evidence that the + models are doing better than the smaller packs. Since I expected them to do worse and that is increasingly unlikely to be true, I'm happy to say I guessed wrong. It is irony that when Nissan finally made a passive pack that was not crap, they gave up and joined the active thermal control crowd. I presume it is an acknowledgement that 50 - 75 kW charging is not competitive.
Its all about workload. Huge difference between 192 hands verses 288 hands. We do have the sliver segment who roadtrip enough to complain about DC charging speed (which means once every other year
) but other than that, the Plus has turned out to be a fairly good compromise on price, range and performance.
Still, it is early and I think the key lies in how many miles will most of us have when the "good" range drops below 200 miles which seems to be the line that most people judge?
As far as the thermal thing? I am not sure if its all about EA's decision to marginalize Chademo or Nissan thinking faster charging speeds are needed? Most of the country doesn't have stations that provide more than 125 amps on Chademo so its like "am I missing something I don't know about?" question.
But the more telling thing is range. The Plus allows me to negate charging speed because I simply charge to the knee and go so I don't see the slow DC speeds because that is range I don't need.
