Nissan Tests 48-kWh LEAF

Wed Oct 16, 2013 7:35 am

There’s nothing newsworthy here until we see one sentence on a LEAF prototype equipped with 48-kWh battery pack.

I was hoping for a 36kWh pack some day soon. Maybe it will happen after all.

What would you be willing to pay for a LEAF with a 36 or 48kWh pack ?

Until I had some VERY concrete evidence that temperature degradation was truly no longer an issue, I'd not pay any more... "Fool me once... (tm)"

Nissan could easily fit that size battery into a Rogue. That's exactly what I'm hoping is available three years from now when my LEAF lease matures.

But not if the Rogue then was still the style-less, mundane, mediocre vehicle it is today...

If they can fix the heat degradation problem this will be a pretty compelling platform. Fast charging starts to look like a viable option for regional road trips with this kind of capacity.

Good morning Tom. I take it from your response you haven't seen the all new Rogue just launched? It's a very nice vehicle.

Tesla charges $10,000 for an extra 25 kWh battery.

For this in a LEAF battery say an extra $7,500. But it would need a better warranty and probably a cooling system for me to stay with Nissan.
Certainly it would need to list a battery replacement cost before I purchase again.
1 bar lost at 21,451 miles, 16 months.
2 bar lost at 35,339 miles, 25 months.
LEAF traded at 45,400 miles for a RAV4-EV
RAV4 traded in for I-Pace Dec 2018
