So prices for a battery replacement at Nissan just changed to roughly 25k for a 24kwh, 30k for a 30kwh one.
Confirmed in Portugal and New Zealand.
Has any one seen this elsewhere?
What could Nissan be thinking with this move? Are they abandoning this market?
Just spoke with Nissan US EV customer support and the pricing is (roughly) unchanged. $8600 for the battery -$1000 core deposit+installation. This means that a new 24 kWh battery is around $8500 installed (up from ~$8000 last year). She did confirm that 30, 40, and 62 kWh batteries are more expensive to replace than the 24 kWh battery, but none are $25k.
As this was Nissan EV US, she had no information about other regions.
Nissan also will only sell a replacement battery with a dealer diagnostic that the car needs a new battery. They require the old battery be returned, and will only sell the capacity that originally came with the car.
