I expected this to be a popular announcement, but this post was a bit of a surprise to me:

Excellent job, Nissan.
As an (ex) advisory board member, I would like to thank Brian and the rest of the team at Nissan for listening carefully to the feedback and for putting together this terrific program! (I even see some response in your message to feedback in our call last week!) I also expect there are probably many thousands of details that had to be addressed to make this all happen which the advisory board never saw, but that effort is also appreciated.
I am hopeful that this option, (or an improved one) is available when I get around to needing a new battery for our LEAF as Ed said: "around 2020".
