What is the 2013 Nissan Leaf Battery Degradation Like?

I purchased a used 2013 Nissan Leaf about three years ago and wonder how much longer my car will last. Any idea what the 2013 Nissan Leaf battery degradation is like?

The 2013 Nissan Leaf’s battery can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years with a proper car maintenance schedule. This range depends on your location and how often you drive your car. For example, if you live in a colder climate and drive daily, your Leaf’s battery will likely degrade more quickly.
To ensure your Leaf lasts as long as it should, aim to keep its charge between two and 10 bars and avoid leaving your Leaf without any charge for long periods.
The 2013 Nissan Leaf came with a basic 36 month/36,000 mile warranty with an extended warranty option covering your Leaf’s battery for up to 96 months or 100,000 miles. Considering the 2013 Leaf was released almost ten years ago, your warranty has likely expired.
If your Leaf’s battery is experiencing degradation, you can replace the battery for roughly $5,500. The lithium-ion battery replacement costs about $4,500 while labor costs for this job amount to about $1000.
