    This TSB has the instructions for reading HV battery module date codes:
    Prius_HV_Batt_SerialNoExample.png
    Some additional information from senior members here:
    To read the date code on the case of the battery (no guarantee that the modules have not been swapped!):

    Great description and pictures of a new battery pack from Toyota from @3prongpaul :
    Is there a way to determine if HV battery is the original?

    Thanks to all the senior members here at PC!:notworthy::notworthy::notworthy:

    EDIT: Special thanks to @dolj :notworthy: for catching error on the graphic (now corrected)

    The battery module in the image actually was made 19 Sep 2015; The 4th character is a "Q" not an "O".

    If it follows the same numbering as Prius modules, then it would be 11 Sep 2016. But I have no idea if it does, but can't think why it wouldn't. Toyota doesn't usually reinvent the wheel, and I imagine the same modules would be used across the whole hybrid range, rather than have special number sequences per model.

    Hello,

    i have a question!
    newer Cells, say 2018, are not listed in the Table above.
    I am right, 2018 is Letter "T"
    I have Cells with Serial "058TAA00852Y"
    So they made 05 May 2018?

    THANK YOU!

    Hello,

    OK .... i hope this is true!

    "After 2015 the letters go sequentially. i.e. R=2016, S=2017, T=2018, U=2019 etc."

    Yes, it is.
    Almost! It is actually 05 Aug 2018 viz a vie:

    05 = Day - 05
    8 = Month - August
    T = Year - 2018

    It looks like it uses the newer decode so this battery has a manufacture date of 31 Oct 2017.
