What’s the price of a Nissan LEAF battery? Who knows, but the price of a Nissan LEAF battery replacement is officially £4,920 in the UK. Also, you can get £1,000 back for returning your old battery. By the way, these prices also apply to Nissan e-NV200 batteries.
That’s not to say that you are going to have to dish out £3,920 if your battery dies after a few months. Nissan, of course, offers a warranty on its products. Nissan’s batteries come with a 5-year, 60,000-mile warranty to cover excessive battery capacity loss.
So far, Nissan has had to replace 3 batteries out of the 30,000 sold in Europe. “We are extremely confident in the longevity of our battery technology but we are pleased to be able to provide further assurances to the growing community of LEAF drivers in the UK and dispel myths around battery pricing,” said Paul O’Neill, EV Manager at Nissan.
“Nissan expects that the majority of LEAF drivers will never need to replace their battery, and the fact that we have only replaced three batteries out of 30,000 Leafs sold across Europe since launch, certainly supports this.”
Nissan produces its EV lithium-ion batteries for Europe in Sunderland, at a factory where it also produces the LEAF, Juke, and Qashqai. It has been producing batteries there since 2013. Nissan just made a £420 million in the factory. It already employs 200 engineers and technicians there.
With the top-selling electric vehicle in the world, Nissan is a clear electric vehicle leader. It also sells the e-NV200 electric van, and its sister company, Renault, sells the Renault ZOE, Renault Twizy, and Renault Kangoo ZE. The Renault-Nissan Alliance dominates the world EV market. If you only want to keep an eye on a few companies in the EV space, I’d recommend the Renault-Nissan Alliance, Tesla, and BMW. Though, you should of course keep an eye on dozens of companies… here on EV Obsession. 😀
