The market launch of the Nissan Leaf is postponed. Originally, the electric car from the Japanese was supposed to come onto the market in the fall, now it will not be available at dealers until February.
The electric Nissan Leaf will only arrive in German dealerships in February 2012. The market launch originally planned for autumn this year is now off the table. Initially, around 15 dealers in major cities and metropolitan areas will offer the Japanese electric car. Its price: probably around 35,000 euros. In order to make it attractive for private and fleet customers, there will probably be special leasing offers. "A leaf must be practicable for the customer", explains the Germany managing director to the online edition of "kfz -betrieb". In addition to a few private customers initially, fleet customers in particular will opt for the e-mobile.
Fast charging station required for Nissan Leaf
In order to be able to sell the first Stromer from the Japanese brand, the dealerships must meet certain criteria. A quick charging station, for example, is a mandatory requirement. Various special tools and special salesperson training are also required. This is intended to give customers competent advice in every respect.
The Leaf comes late on the German market. Not only in Japan and the USA, but also in other European countries such as Portugal and the Netherlands, the electric vehicle has been available for sale for a long time. In these countries, however, there are also funding measures that are intended to stimulate purchases. In this country, such incentives are only granted hesitantly. Electric vehicle owners are exempt from vehicle tax for ten years. With a diesel vehicle of the same power, this would correspond to a maximum saving of 150 euros per year. (mid)
