I am completely surprised that they are even offering one, and I am happy again. I was ready to roll my own, but as long as my portion that isn't covered by Nissan is less than $1K, I'll be happy.
It better be less than $1k. Tesla performed the upgrade for their customers for $500, and Nissan is indicating that they will bear the majority of the cost.

Yeah but Tesla is a good company... Nissan is well, Nissan. Tesla has designed their cars from the ground up to be upgradeable. Nissan designed it like a "normal" car and it is very locked down.
And if Nissan could charge $20K for it, they would. They'll crank up the price until people will really consider buying it or not because it is too high. Then run a special that discounts it just enough that people will think it is a deal, and buy it. Nissan and the other car makers know what they're doing...
