Nope. Because the 13 & 14 LEAFs are different than the 11's & 12's

You can get them if you like. They cost around $38 each.

We'll see. Bit early to fairly compare their capacity degradation yet.
Yes, the 2015 if it has the new more heat resistant chemistry might be quite a bit different.
But if Nissan did that using only accelerated rapid cycle testing it too might have issues.
They've already proven they know how to do it wrong on the 2011 and 2012. And in six months to a year we'll find out about the 2013.
Just hope you're not helping Nissan lead more inadequately informed people down the garden path :cry:

Tim,

Do I still need to warn potential LEAF owners about the battery with a replacement price of only $5500?

I think in 7 years I'll be able to go to a Pep-Boys and get a replacement pack for $1295.00 installed.

SELLING replacement battery with trade in core for $229 per kWh.
Build a big enough battery plant and $400 to $600 per kWh are a thing of the past :!: :!: :!: :!:

Better.

Still quite a bit more positive than my perspective on my Nissan LEAF that is five years and two weeks old, has less than 34,000 miles on it, has a battery capacity of 63%, but would not drop the fourth capacity bar prior to five years.
And it is worth only $5,000 per the recent dealer offer to take it as a trade in.

The problem is not electric cars.
It is Nissan's defective implementation.

And those that missed the battery lottery often did so because of Nissan's marketing lies.
I would not have left the garage doors partly open the first two summers to help the battery had Nissan been honest.

I think your promoting electric vehicles is great.
The whole Nissan LEAF story just doesn't fit on a small sign.

Takes three to five minutes to tell it all when people ask.

There are many wonderful things about the LEAF.
The first thing I always tell people about it is I love.
But the other two to three minutes are so poor that I could not find the enthusiasm to go tell that complete story multiple times at last year's drive electric event.
So I skipped attending.
