Australia: Nissan Leaf Electric Vehicle On Sale In Australia

Nissan’s new all-electric Leaf hatch is now on sale in Australia, priced, as revealed late last year, at $51,500.

On sale internationally since late 2010, the Leaf has been a long-time coming for Australian buyers, with only a lucky few taking part in the car’s 2011 pilot programme.

The arrival of the Leaf marks a significant step forward for Nissan Australia, joining Mitsubishi – soon to be joined also by Holden and Renault – as one of the few global carmakers to offer an electric vehicle on the local market.

Nissan Australia boss Bill Peffer says the Leaf is just the first shot in the company’s electric arsenal, describing its upcoming EV range as a “major part of Australia’s zero emission future”.

The company has partnered with energy company Origin as its preferred provider of charging services, which means that Leaf buyers will have the option of having Origin’s charging equipment installed in their garage.

Other providers, such as Better Place Australia and ChargePoint, have been rolling out their own charging infrastructure over the past few years.
