View Here : Nissan Leaf Battery Replacement
I decided to take Nissan up on its Leaf Battery Replacement offer; my dealer told me that my replacement battery pack was the first on the West Coast. The replacement is a newly-manufactured 24-kilowatt-hour battery pack with cells that use the “lizard” chemistry that handles heat better.
Re: Nissan Battery Replacement Program, Cost Fri Jul 29, 2016 5:20 pm If you were to buy a small car that gets 30 mpg, you would be paying about 80/mo to go 1000 mi. Add in the fact that you have more maintenance costs with a conventional car, and you are probably equal or paying less, to drive the Leaf with a new battery.
To alleviate concerns, Nissan is launching a new replacement program – starting with Japan: “Starting in May, owners of the 100% electric Nissan LEAF can turn in their used batteries and, for a fee, receive refabricated ones.
The upgrades reportedly (I can’t verify this personally) increase the Nissan LEAF’s single-charge range to 160 miles per charge, rather than ~80 miles per charge — for just $6,500. The upgrade is to a 48 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery, from the standard 24 kWh battery that comes with current Nissan LEAFs.
The warranty on the new battery is the same as it is in a brand new LEAF — 8 years/100,000 miles against defects and 5 years/60,000 miles against capacity loss. “These replacement batteries are the same battery found in 2015 LEAF vehicles, which are also on sale now at Nissan dealers.
30 Responses to $6,000 to replace worn battery, Nissan say 100,000 miles for an electric vehicle is “phenomenal”. ... By the time it’s time to replace your LEAF ...
While most electric cars don’t display that capacity loss on the dashboard, Nissan’s LEAF and e-NV200 electric vehicles do by slowly extinguishing the twelve-bar capacity gauge as the battery loses its ability to store energy.
Battery replacements are now available for purchase at your certified Nissan LEAF dealers in the United States. The suggested retail price of the Nissan LEAF battery pack is $5,499. This price includes and requires a return of your original battery pack (valued at $1,000) to the dealer in exchange for the new battery.
Yesterday morning, Nissan confirmed long-running rumors that suggested the 2016 Nissan LEAF SL and SV electric cars would go on sale with a larger-capacity battery pack to extend the real-world EPA-approved range of the popular family hatchback to 107 miles per charge.
