"No one can make batteries that cost less than the mains electricity they can charge and discharge in their lifetime"

Hmmm -

Nissan Leaf battery 24kWh@0.25/kwH (total incl line charges) = $6 * 365 = 2190 *10years = $21,900

Replacement cost for Nissan Leaf battery (no exchange) $5000.

Nope looks like we are already well past economic!

In fact: Nissan Leaf 2012, 11000km = $19,995

I think I'll just leave it parked outside as a nice battery box, and sell the motor and tyres as spares on ebay
