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.
