Big cut to Nissan’s Leaf


Nissan New Zealand is hoping electric-propulsion will appeal to a far-broader sector of the market with a huge cut to the price of its Leaf mode.

The battery-powered five-door hatch has seen its price slashed from $69,700 to just $39,990 – cheaper then some petrol driven models in the small hatch market.

The company says it will see the car compete on overall ownership cost with other similar vehicles.

“Nissan has taken a number of pioneering steps with the LEAF electric car,” says Nissan NZ managing director John Manley. “This is an exceptional car and we are delighted to make it more appealing to New Zealand new-car buyers.”

“I encourage any urban commuters considering a five-door hatchback to take a drive in a Nissan LEAF,” Manley says. “First-time drivers of the Nissan LEAF are always surprised by its spirited performance matched with its fun-to-drive nature and owners will never tire of not having to buy petrol”.

“The Nissan LEAF should be on the shopping list of every Small car buyer.”

The company has also expanded the number of dealers authorised to sell and service the Leaf to nine.
