I disagree on never changing the battery in a later model. It isn't far to go anywhere in the UK, so a small range can still be useful, but I would see the benefit from a longer range car battery. For example I don't travel to Hay (145km) in the Leaf, because if caught short I would be needing a trip on truck to get to the charger. Then I would have the same problem getting home. A longer range would be worth the price for another battery. I am interested in the NZ one with 500km range !

This one could be a game changer even for us Aussies.
I'm going to get in touch with them.
