Nissan to make Leaf South Africa’s first EV

The all-electric Leaf model will debut on the local car market in South Africa in the spring of 2014, after the official unveiling during the Johannesburg International Motor Show in October 2013.

The Nissan Leaf has already been involved in South Africa in pilot programs with Eskom – the national electricity supplier – the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) and the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA), as the outcome of these programs will be paving the way forward for the development of the entire new EV industry in South Africa.

Managing Director of Nissan South Africa, Mike Whitfield, comments: “The launch of the Nissan LEAF in South Africa will be a ground-breaking event this year as it brings about the dawn of a new era of motoring. Nissan is the first brand to explore EV retail in South Africa and we are extremely proud to be able to say ‘we were first’.”
