Interesting how much the cradle weight drags down the energy density.
[...]and the specific energy is 109 Wh kg-1 and 99 Wh kg-1 for cell and battery module, respectively. [...]

UPDATE 2: The sales rep has never heard of LEV50 cells and doesn't know what I am talking about. The manufacture date is 3/08/2012. He says he only has one i-Miev certified mechanic there who can getthe battery report. He is just trying to get some time with him to get me the battery info. So that is the hold up getting the info on the battery.
I thought NA USDM i's had first eight, and then ten years of warranty?
3/08 means March 8th., right? (Thats why I prefer the YYYY-MM-DD standard ... : )
At first I interpreted it to august and thought heey, LEV50N on board! According to this
newsletter, you should probably skip that 2012 car. Is it a MY12 or MY13, btw? Does is have two heated seats? Black or brown upholstry? ACC/heating remote?
Does that 2014 model have LED headlamps like our euro-MiEV's got? And those pesky TPMS sensors?
