IIRC that is for the new model LEAFs. Someone else will have to chime in with the exact years involved.

Looks like you're right, I stand corrected.

Under the new warranty, Nissan will repair or replace a Leaf's battery within five years or 60,000 miles if it loses more than 30 percent of its charge capacity. For Leaf owners, that means the warranty kicks in if the 12-bar battery gauge falls under nine bars. The new warranty is the second for the Leaf's batteries; the first covers defects and flaws for up to eight years or 100,000 miles.


I'm going to keep rocking 100%. I'm still 2 years from 5 years of service (car entered service in Jan '14). So, I'll see how it goes before I start to baby the battery.

Keep in mind that the warranty expires when the first of either 5 years or 60k miles occurs

That's for the 30 kWH battery.

Keep in mind that Nissan originally didn't offer a battery capacity warranty at all when the 2011/2012 models were still new; I remember signing paperwork that specifically made that clear. It was added in 2013 (and retroactively to earlier Leafs) after the sh--storm that brewed when early Leafs in hot climates began to lose capacity rapidly.
Blue Ocean 2012 Leaf SV, lost that 1st bar on 11/21/2015 at 26,435 miles.
Lease returned on 12/23/2015. Final LeafStat figures: 225 Gids, 17.44 kWH, SOC 91.89%, SOH 82.36%, 69.49% HX, 54.57 Ahr, battery temp 61.8 F

vw seems to care about the battery.If you set a departure time you can also set a charge level like 80%. Then just in time to make the departure time it charges to 100%. It lever leaves the car at 100% for a long time.

Both of my Leaf's were early enough to that the 80% option and that is what I mostly used. Really, since I lease I should not care about the battery since no matter what it should last 3 years.
