Definitely...and I hope to keep my Leaf another 10 years (already had it for 10).
That's really the trick: finding a "good" battery pack (no matter what the size). I've seen a few 40 kWh packs pop-up around Tennessee (we all know that's where Nissan builds their US packs), and who's to say that Nissan won't make packs available down the road (they seem to coalescing around 40 kWh on the bottom end)? While the price may not be good, we know they will be "fresh". Of course, this may ultimately be a "service" (with a fee) by whomever does the battery swap.jbsocdelica wrote: ↑Mon Dec 28, 2020 1:39 pmIf you kept your tires stock, remind me your concerns about the additional 22 kWh?
Also there maybe one more reason for 64 kWh upgrade that I just thought of. Most 62 kWh batteries will be less than 1 year old and have little mileage on them / down time. I wonder what the probabilities are of you getting a hold of a fresh 40 kWh battery?
I also use Michelin Defenders (on my second set actually), but the bottom line is: I just don't want to mess with the additional ground clearance issues.
