I've noticed the some of the EV dealers on TradeMe are offering third-party extended warranties that supposedly cover the battery in some form.

 

Any thoughts? Has anyone here purchased one of these?

 

I have contacted the dealers and not been able to get specifics as to when the warranty would kick in for a battery issue... i.e.. battery SOH drops below a certain percentage in the warranty period.

I purchased one after talking to my dealer, the insurance company and the Wellington Nissan dealership.

 

It covers the usual things that can go wrong with a car, not just the battery.  

 

As for the battery, I called Autosure and they said that they would rely on a battery expert to declare if the battery had a fault or just normal wear and tear.  I asked who the expert was and they said Nissan NZ.

 

So, I called Nissan in Wellington and spoke to their Leaf mechanic.  He said he would consider a failed module as battery failure, and they can replace them one at a time if necessary.  He said they send them to Auckland for battery work.

 

I hope that helps.
