Nissan produces its own lithium-ion batteries for both the 40 kWh and 62 kWh packs
The reports and rumors about LG Chem as the battery supplier for the new 62 kWh Nissan LEAF e+ were denied by Nissan.
According to Electric Revs, who reached out to the Japanese manufacturer, LG has nothing to do with any batteries for any LEAFs. Cells, modules and packs are produced by Nissan in Smyrna, Tennessee. That is contrary to strong expectations that the “new 60 kWh version” for sure would get LG Chem cells, what many had expected/speculated.
