Perhaps this will catch on here in the U.S. and we can repurpose the many used packs made available by accidents.
IIRC, about 1% of on-road vehicles get totaled each year from accident.
That's plenty for DIYers; however, a second source for new fairly-priced packs would be welcomed.

@galehawkins

I would be delighted at mention of a buyback
In my case I had just bought the car 5 weeks before it lost the 4th State Of Health battery bar. The selling Nissan dealership to close the deal assured me I would be due an new traction battery from from Nissan per the Nissan battery warranty he had printed out for me before I arrived from my 5 hour drive to test drive his 2016 Nissan SL showing 20,665 miles. I needed a nice car to get the wife to work until a planned 2024 retirement.

Thankfully 6 weeks after I had trailered our Leaf to the closest Nissan Leaf service center our Leaf was ready to pickup containing a new 40 kWh lithium ion battery pack.

While it was far from hassle free after I learned that Carlos had just predicted Nissan would be in bankruptcy court in 2022 I realized I had a serious issue. The Leaf was my 6th Nissan but the first Nissan without a gas tank.

My above story was pre Covid-19. If Ford is at risk of bankruptcy at this point I expect the Leaf may be Nissan's last EV on the world market. I love Nissan products but can not support the level of integrity I see at the top today in Japan.
