Yes I'm seeing that battery is damaged. What would the cost be to replace a battery in a 2015?
It's not damaged. It has degraded, just like all li-ion batteries do over time.
However, since you mention AZ, the amount of degradation isn't surprising. High temps are murder on Leaf's batteries.
That is the bad news.
The good news is that degradation should be slow in Alaska. So if the car does what you need, with margin, it should continue to do so for a good long time.
You can NOT count on the car's range estimate, especially in cold weather. Dave's 30 mile estimate would likely be too high in interior Alaska and might be too high in coastal Alaska. In very cold temperatures the battery heater will run, draining the battery. If your commute has a open air parking lot, you will need to account for this as well.
Where in Alaska? Not exactly, but close enough so we have a clue as to climate. Put into your profile, so we can always see it, please.
