why would it be different?
Oh, I don't know ... ...
To save NIssan money ?
The warranty requirements and compliance are generally different when a part is replaced under the original new car warranty versus
a subsequent part replacement (owner pays) when it no longer falls within the original new car warranty. That's most likely the case
whether it's a 24kWh or a 30kWh (if possible), where the owner pays for an out-of-warranty battery replacement. Obviously, Nissan
based on "goodwill" could elect to provide the same original new car warranty to an out-of-warranty owner-pays replacement. But,
Nissan may only elect to do that for a Leaf out-of-warranty for the a 24kWh battery and not a 30kWh one. As I said, there's no industry
compliance requirements when the original new car warranty expires and the owner becomes fully responsible for future repairs
and parts. An understanding of simple contract law and logic would basically arrive at this conclusion.
