Default If You Want Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt/Bolt Check Out How The Battery Is Cooled

Most people only see the electric cars' exterior/interior and features, but aren’t aware about the most essential component - the battery and how it’s cooled. If you are looking to buy a Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt or a Chevy Bolt you need to know how the battery is cooled.





GM gets praise for a well engineered battery thermal management system used on Chevy Volt, Chevy Bolt, Chevy Spark EV and the Cadillac ELR.

Few days ago the news broke out that Nissan Leaf required a third charge and that the range and the charging times of the new 2018 Nissan Leafs are misleading. See the story by Torque News and our commentary on Nissan Leaf charging time and range here.

I am following a discussion in GM EV Owners Group on Facebook where people say this is what you get for a cheap thermal management system for batteries and that Nissan is making EVs look bad to the general public.
