Zero Emission Nissan LEAF Priced to deliver Zero Emission Leadership

Nissan New Zealand today announced its zero emission electric vehicle, the Nissan LEAF, would go on sale in July priced at $69,600.

In revealing the Recommended Retail Price, Nissan New Zealand Managing Director, John Manley said the LEAF family hatch was priced to deliver Nissan leadership in this fast developing zero emissions segment and offered true, premium car value with 21st century technology that would change the personal mobility landscape.

“Last year New Zealand achieved nearly 80% of electricity generation from renewable means, the third highest of all OECD countries.

With a Government target of 90 per cent of electricity generation to be from renewable sources by 2025 New Zealand provides an ideal environment for widespread utilisation of electric vehicles.”

Nissan has sold more than 20,000 LEAFs in its first year, which has already made it the highest-selling electric car in the history of the car industry. It has also garnered the highest critical acclaim; in the form of World Car of the Year, European Car of the Year and Japanese Car of the Year; the Nissan LEAF is now opening up new motoring alternatives across the Globe.

“With a range of up to 160kms on a single battery charge, the LEAF is expected to find favour early on in New Zealand’s fleets, as they seek sustainable transport solutions, and later with private customers who are interested in a zero tailpipe emission car ownership experience coupled with freedom from petrol service stations.” Manley said.

Nissan New Zealand is currently finalising plans for an EV dealer network concentrating sales points at key urban locations. These locations will be advised next month.

“Nissan dealers will be at the forefront of automotive generational change when LEAF arrives in their showrooms in July,” said Manley.
