Potential of installing a future upgraded battery?

Hi - I lease my 2018 PHEV Clarity and love it. Since I have the option to buy, I was wondering if anyone has heard if the battery will be upgradeable. I know car manufacturers rarely do stuff like this as they build in planned obsolescence.

I did the same - leased the 2018 because it was a steal of a deal !

And if the car proves to be as reliable as Hondas in the past, I will end up buying out the lease and keep her.

As for the EV battery, I would not worry much as Honda warranties the battery for 8 years / 100,000 miles or in California: 10 years / 150,000 miles.

If you are keeping the car at the end of the lease, you can buy the Honda extended warranty just before the 3/36 runs out.
