Nissan tests new Leaf battery recipe

December 9, 2013 – 12:01 am ET

TOKYO — Nissan believes it can create a longer-lasting battery pack for its electric Leaf next year by altering the recipe used to create the component.

The proposed change in chemical composition, which is still under review at the automaker, should make the lithium ion battery more resilient to hot-weather aging, says Billy Hayes, vice president for Nissan’s global electric vehicle business.

“We’re working on an improved chemistry to improve the longevity of the batteries, especially in these prolonged extreme heat situations,” Hayes told journalists during the Tokyo Motor Show last month.

“We’re optimistic that we would use that for replacements going forward.”
