That pack has 100 cells not 96.
So if cells 97,98,99 and 100 exist then this must be a new pack.


Well, we must add PIDs for this.

But, the hint is the final voltage at 100% :
96 cells (96S2P) = 398,4v (or a little more)
100 cells (100S2P) = 415v (or a little more)

Problem of the hint, the builder can have decrease the max cell voltage at 4,05~4,10v to take note about the usage in TAXI mode and Chademo 2 times per day.

Thanks SoulEV2016.
Yes, there is a very easy way to know which battery you have.
What is your battery voltage at 100% SOC.

If it is 398V it is the old battery. If it is 415V it is the new.

For my 2 year old car battery voltage is 398.6V at 100% SOC. Max cell is 4,16V and Min Cell 4,14V

Voltage at 100% is 398.4 V, so I got the 96 cell battery. And I am absolutely fine with that!

Just had my battery, battery management system, and on-board charger replaced by Kia of Irvine. Car was at about 32 months / 32k miles, and had degraded to about 54 miles at full charge. This was the second replacement of the OBC.
