Australia: Nissan Leaf priced at $51,500

A household wiring inspection will be part of the package for private owners of the first family-sized electric car when it hits the showroom floor.

Nissan announced pricing for the Leaf as it prepares to start selling the car to fleet operators and taking customer inquiries.

Private buyers will have their homes’ wiring assessed to ensure it is capable of taking the 10-amp draw required to charge the Leaf on a “level one” basis.

Nissan is also recommending they upgrade to a 15-amp recharge facility – but can’t yet give a price on what the “level two” charging point will cost. Nissan Australia brand manager Darren Holland said recharging via a 15-amp supply would take about eight hours if the battery was flat – and most owners won’t come close to using the 140km “real world” range during their daily commute.
