Isn’t Fenix the guys who are proposing a monthly fee instead of selling the battery? Or is that someone else.
The guys in Quebec have a sellable product. If they ever get a western installer there are a couple folks in our town who would drop 10 grand Canadian for a 40 KWH upgrade to their gen 1 Leaf.
Yes, Fenix is the upgrade subscription model. They've stated costs to rent the battery will be less than $99 per month for 30 kWh and $1500 for installation. They also offered an option to buy the battery outright, but haven't specified that cost.
Now that they have the battery supplier locked in, it's unclear if the $99/mth will apply to the 40 kWh or 30 kWh.
As always, I think the pricing is reasonable with the Fenix folks. $99/mth to keep an otherwise good Leaf running, on the road, with greater capacity than new seems like a slam dunk for a lot of people. The concern with Fenix is the risk: They've yet to show anything public that's working or demonstrating the tech.
