Strange, I was just quoted $7500 less a $1000 core deposit on my 24KWH battery pack. And there are several different prices quoted in this thread. I am going to check around. If the prices vary so much, perhaps I can get a better price by shipping it to Atlanta for the new battery pack. At any rate, the $5500 price is gone. Probably for good. Nissan is not helping their sales by screwing over the early adopters. Word will get out.
