I've been repeatedly trying for several months now to get some information from my local Nissan dealer and from Nissan Canada on the availability of a replacement traction battery pack for my MY11 Leaf. I've been doing this since the news of the $5500 pack was announced in the US. I've not been able to get any response; not even a "we can't say anything right now". The parts manager keeps saying he'll work on it (restarted that several times now) and I get no reply at all from Nissan Canada.
Has anyone been able to get a price on purchasing the new pack and the retrofit kit for the MY11/12 Leaf in Canada?
I need to make a decision at some point in the next couple of years about whether I can replace the battery or sell the car. I fear the car will not make it to work as the battery degrades further. I have lost 2 bars and have about 75% of the pack capacity remaining. In the dead of winter in Toronto, with a stiff headwind and some heat to keep the windshield clear, I'm getting very close to not being able to do a 60 km commute at 95 km/h highway.
