Per Sandy Munro, it's currently 51%.

I don't get the article's emphasis on the powertrain, as this quote from the article makes it clear where the real cost is (not that we didn't know).
Anyway, if he broke down the powertrain components' share in the total cost, the battery pack would undoubtedly be responsible for most of it.
LEAF '13 SL+Prem (mfg 12/13, leased 4/14, bought 5/17, sold 11/18) 34K mi, AHr 58, SOH 87%
Tesla S 75D (3/17)
Tesla X 100D (12/18)
97K 100% BEV miles since '14
ICE free since '18

The article gets a big yawn, similar to the H2/FCEV posts!
#1 Leaf SL MY 9/13: 76K miles, 47 Ahrs, 5.0 miles/kWh (average), Hx=70, SOH=73, L2 - 100% > 1000, temp < 95F, (DOD) > 20 Ahrs
#2 Leaf SL MY 12/18: 10.3K miles, SOH 109Ahrs/115Ahrs, 5.2 miles/kWh (average), DOD > 20%, temp < 105F
