You could ask the dealer to let you read the forms before making a final purchase decision.

"The rate of reduction cannot be assured, however, the battery is expected to maintain approximately 80% of its’ initial capacity after 5 years of normal operation and recommended care, but this is not guaranteed."

Nissan is finally being realistic, at least for the fleet average. The 2 SD range is I suspect between 2% - 8% a year (places like Phoenix excluded.)

That quoted language is from the 2011 forms--Nissan disclosed their deterioration estimates back then, but the original chemistry batteries did not do that well in Phoenix. They now offer an 8-year, 100,000-mile capacity warranty. It will be interesting to see how my 62 kWh battery holds up.
