I spoke to my local Nissan dealer today about a battery replacement for my 2015 leaf with 24KWH battery. The guy at the service desk looked confused, told me it was a 24V battery and that it would cost $15K to replace it. When I looked skeptical, he admitted that he didn't know what he was talking about and sent me to the parts department because they knew more about such things.
The first guy at the parts counter had to call for another guy. But, the second parts guy said that they did 1-2 battery replacements per year and that the cost for the battery is currently $7,650. He gave me a quote on paper. The part number listed is 295B0-9RB8A. He wasn't sure what the capacity of that battery was, but he went back and asked the mechanic who does all of the battery swaps and that guy said it was a 24KWH unit.
My car has 100K miles on it at this point, and it's lost two bars of capacity. It's just starting to be a problem for me as far as being able to go where I want to go.
Can anyone tell me what is the actual capacity of part number 295B0-9RB8A? If that is a 30kwh unit, I might just go ahead and pull the trigger.
