I wouldn't count on it. Nissan's been unwilling to provide any sort of upgrade path from cars with 24 kWh packs to 30 kWh packs. So, the odds don't look that good for them changing their mind. We also don't know how different the 60 kWh cars will be from the 40 kWh cars, besides the batteries.

How much would you be willing to pay?

See like I said before, so much disappointment from Nissan, but I really do dig the leaf and the new model looks even good to me. So Apple came out with the new iPhone X and supposedly battery lasts longer, maybe Apple can make us a battery =)

They probably could, but with the price of the iPhone X, I'd expect that battery to cost $20k.. ;-)
