With a guaranteed 55 hundred dollar battery by Nissan I don't see any waste happening if you keep your car in good cosmetic shape.. I do see dinged up and funky cars being tossed.

Well, in a few years, a long in the tooth 80 mile EV may be worth only a couple of thousand dollars. Who is going to put $5.5k into a car to bring it's value up to $2k-$3k? Think about what a well used Tesla or Bolt might be worth with a badly degraded battery that will still do 100-150 miles.
