My 2017 has a battery pack that was made in March of 2017. I bought the car in July of 2017, and I would charge the car every night with my JuiceBox. However, I drove a little more between charges late last month, and I received "propulsion power reduced" while on the freeway.

I received propulsion power reduced around 30 kWh, and the car died after only 31 kWh/140 miles. I was told it was a code 60 or something (faulty cell).

Apparently, I have a new battery in my car, and I wanted to know how many kWh did you receive before your car battery required recharging? Was it well below the 50 kWh, much less 58 or so?

You had a battery with one or more low capacity cells. A full 100% charge should allow pulling at least 57 kWh from the battery before the car stops.

This problem, while (supposedly) rare, has been documented on this site more than once. If you look around, you should be able to find them.
