Only the Nissan's that don't have proper thermal management. There are long terms studies that show Tesla's only lose 10-15% over hundreds of thousands of km's from their early Model S's. I thought it would be an issue, but turns out it isn't a big deal. Though it could still be a bigger issue after 10 years, to soon to tell.
