After a 4 hour wait at dealership, I been informed I qualify for a new battery on my 2011 Leaf. They have ordered the battery and install kit. No idea of delivery date.

Our 2011 Leaf dropped its 4th bar last month (at about 33,000 miles). I've been waiting to take it in until the 2016 Leaf was announced. I stopped by a Nissan dealership today and asked about paying some money to upgrade to the 30kWh battery instead of getting the replacement 24kWh battery. I was told that I would have to go through the process of verifying that my car lost its 4 bar before the dealership could ask the Nissan warranty people about the possibility of upgrading. I have an appointment for next week to have my 4BL status verified.

I highly doubt the 30kw battery will be an replacement option from Nissan, that is not to say that someone won't figure out how to do it, it's just that Nissan won't do it.

I'm below 43, SOH=65%, the 9th bar is sticking around, of course no new battery for me when it is gone.

It's been confirmed on GCR that, while the same size, the new 30 kWh battery is NOT compatible with the older LEAF models.
