Nissan was offering the 24 kWh battery for$5,499 plus install last year. The install only takes 3 hours. It sounds like a battery replacement is closer to $6k to me.

As someone above pointed out, the key to turning this expensive purchase into a reasonable one is charging at work (or at least nearby)
