That would be a range of at least 75 miles in 2023. And if it doesn’t hold up, while being annoying, the warranty will “fix” it.
Or is that not a correct way to look at things?
I think it's a good way to look at it. The 30 and 40 kWh packs have a longer warranty than the 24, and the increased range makes them have to go further down before needing replacement. Cell failures would be warranty covered as well.
Personally, I'd buy a 30kWh over a 24 for exactly the reasons you state, price being equal. Also, if you DO decide to ever buy a replacement pack, Nissan will ONLY install the original capacity battery. If you have a 30 kWh, you'll get more capacity AND a longer warranty. Nissan currently charges the same price regardless of capacity for replacement packs... Making the 30 a much better deal.
