Want a Leaf? Got a garage?
Prospective buyers of the new Nissan Leaf electric vehicle will have to have off street parking, otherwise the company will not sell them the $51,500 vehicle.
Nissan is reportedly giving interested customers a questionnaire regarding their intended usage, as well as lining up a visit from Origin Energy – Nissan’s electrical supplier – to check the suitability of the electrical network for recharging.
James Staveley Nissan Australia’s model line manager for the Leaf, told Fairfax press the company had already approved 100 buyers, with another 100 applications being processes.
“The majority of customers we have declined have been because they don’t have off-street partaking available to them which we consider essential for a safe and convenient recharging environment,” he said.
The Leaf price tag includes a recharging cable, but not a $2700 recharging station.
