Nissan Australia has announced its zero emission electric
vehicle, the Nissan Leaf, would go on sale in June 2012 priced at $51,500*.
In revealing the Manufacturer's List Price* (MLP*), Nissan Australia CEO, Dan Thompson said the Leaf
hatch was priced to deliver Nissan leadership in the zero emissions segment and offered 21st century
technology that would change the personal mobility landscape.
“We’ve stated before that we expect to see meaningful sales volumes from Leaf as a contribution to
Nissan Australia’s market growth expectations and zero emission leadership aspirations”
“We see Leaf not only as a brand mobiliser but very much an integral part of our passenger car
range.” he added.
Nissan has sold more than 20,000 Leafs in its first year, which has already made it the best-selling
electric car in the history of the car industry.
“With a range of up to 170 kms on a single battery charge, the Leaf is expected to find favour
early on in Australia’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.” Thompson said.
Nissan Australia is currently finalising plans for an EV dealer network concentrating sales points at
key urban locations.
“Nissan dealers will be at the forefront of automotive generational change when Leaf arrives in
their showrooms mid-next year.” said Thompson.
