Re: HV battery replacement

Today I've been driving until FFE stopped refusing to drive. I could get 19.1 kWh out of the battery from 100% charged. Not great for 33.5kWh battery. Wondering if the battery replacement came with separate ECU/BMS or they used the same ones.

HV battery replacement

Hi, I have second hand FFE 2012. I was expecting 23kwh battery but to my surprise when I have uncovered battery itself behind the seats the label shows 33kwh. The weird thing is that I still get around 20kWh out of this battery when car says it's empty. Would it be possible that car is unaware of bi...
