Nissan Announces Leaf Battery Pack Pricing

Nissan Leaf New Battery Cost: $5,500 For Replacement With Heat-Resistant Chemistry

Wow...that's cheap. $5500 including $1000 core credit, plus a $225 kit to retrofit the newest, latest and greatest pack into older cars. This is FAR cheaper than EV nay sayers originally predicted. Nissan may also create a financing option for approx. $100/month.

For us DIY EVers, that potentially is a 24kWh pack for a measly $6500.

CALB cells are approx. $437/kWh.
This works out to $271/kWh, if this pricing is accurate.

All I have to say is
