“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.”

The announcement follows a £420 million investment in Nissan’s Sunderland plant which produces the Qashqai, Juke and Leaf. An on site plant also began to produce lithium-ion batteries in 2013 and employs more than 200 engineers and technicians. .
