Nissan Announces Extended Battery Warranty for Leaf EV Buyers

Nissan covers battery packs for 60,000 miles

Nissan Leaf owners around the country have been complaining that the battery packs installed in the vehicles are losing capacity at an alarming rate. Many of the complaints come from Leaf owners in warm states. Nissan has announced it is expanding the battery warranty on the Leaf to replace some of the battery packs that are losing their capacity.

Nissan's new extended warranty for the battery packs will go into effect this spring. The warranty modifications will apply to all 2011 and 2012 Leaf vehicles. Under the new warranty, any battery pack that has fewer than nine bars out of a maximum of 12 for battery capacity when fully charged can be replaced or repaired.

The catch is that Nissan will only guarantee that you will get nine bars back even after repair or replacement, rather than the full 12 bars of capacity. Those four bars represent a significant decline in capacity as it is. The warranty covers the batteries for five years or 60,000 miles.

But some portion of potential buyers, who may be amenable to the benefits of driving a battery-electric vehicle, won't consider the Leaf because of its "weird" looks. DON'T MISS: New 20 ...

The Renaultsport R.S. 01 Is The Mid-Engined GT-R You Always Wanted

Aug 27 2014 8:10am CDT | Source: Jalopnik

The Nissan GT-R is all great and fine and dandy, but it's big, and heavy, and the engine is right up at the front. What you wanted was something sleek, something lightweight, and you wanted the engine in the middle, where it belongs. And it had to be French, for some reason. This is ...
