Nissan starts LEAF battery exchange program in Japan

Nissan Leaf Battery Pack

Starting in May, Japanese LEAF owners will be able to exchange their old batteries for refurbished ones. Nissan will initially offer 24 kWh refabricated batteries for ¥300,000 ($2,853) each. Prices for brand-new replacement batteries range from $6,182 for a 24 kWh battery to $7,800 for the 40 kWh version.

Nissan is using the battery-rebuilding capabilities of 4R Energy, a company established through a joint venture with Sumitomo.
