Keeping these in service long term as long as the battery meets the needs is really the most environmentally friendly option. So other than the battery deterioration, it is still going strong?...
Sure. It's a (fairly) well kept car with less than 60 k miles.
And remember that with ~18.5 kWh remaining, it still has about the same capacity as (and much longer electric range) than a brand-new 2018 Chevy Volt. If my commute wasn't so long, fifty to sixty miles, I'd probably be content to continue to use the OE battery for years to come.

And that brings up another feature of Nissan's screw you battery replacement policy.
Nissan has refused to sell me a new pack, unless I give them back my OE pack for only $1k in credit, a fraction of my pack's current value.
