Agreed. One guy stated he was getting one for $2500 but when it came time to pay, they billed him $1300ish and he has no idea why. He was told that billing came directly from Nissan so somewhere some how, someone got confused?

Creating a 24 kwh pack is no more difficult than probably selecting a few different buttons. I am guessing its not that difficult to switch from one pack to the other. I am sure there is a lot more to it than what I am portraying here

Okay, however not being difficult to produce doesn't mean they'll actually produce them. It's about profits, not about the difficulty to produce. If there's more profit producing some other batteries that fills their manufacturing capacity I suspect they would rather produce those batteries instead.


so ignoring the early adopters AND the capacity warranty is a profit maker? I actually see their recent actions as the opposite of what you suggest.

Interested in the price of the pack but if you have a breakdown (install, etc. ) that would be nice as well.


I'm an official out of warranty 2011 LEAF owner who just picked up my car with a replacement battery. It's great to have the range back as I was down 5 bars. Nissan offered, and I accepted an 80/20 cost share.

My costs were:
Labor: $93.04
Parts: $1395.00
Tax $129.04
--------------------
Total $1617.08

you are #1!!! (by just over $200...) But to be fair, the previous #1 was in WA State where all things EV are tax free including labor.

A small sample size? Honestly, I'm glad Nissan has decided to step up a bit with the early adapters. I think 80/20 is reasonably fair, given the marketing campaign when it first was available. I'm happy that I can expect it to be my daily driver for several more years for that cost.

I need to admit, at this point, my interest is turning towards autonomous cars rather than electric.

Mark,

You should reach out to Nissan Corporate. Your 2nd battery was installed before Lizard tech was available, you may be eligible for a special deal.

we know what the stated list price is of the LEAF and we know what you can buy one for....

so my question is how many people do we know of that have paid full price for a battery in the last year? 2 years?

This data is going to be impossible to interpret, since it might only reflect what deals Nissan offers that people are willing to accept.

Have no idea what you are getting at here. My ONLY request was what was actually paid for a replacement. Offers, rumors, reports of friends, links to articles about pricing, etc. ; not interested.
