You think there will be more than 50% degradation in 2-3 years? Holy crap.Reddy wrote:In your situation, I would only lease, 2 yrs, and for less than $200/mo. Right now we don't know how long the 40 KWh 2018 battery will last, but if the 30KWh 2017 battery is any indication, you will have difficulties making 70 mi after 2-3 yrs. Unless you're able or willing to charge at work or along the way, be prepared for significant degradation. I hope for Nissan's sake (and EVs in general), but at this point it's "Fool me thrice.....".RonSwanson wrote:I have a 35 mile commute each way in a hot climate. Guess I can cross this one off my list!
