Nissan announced that during the current mid-term plan, one-third of its Australian volume will include electric technology.
Nissan announced that the deliveries of the new generation Nissan LEAF will begin in mid-2019, and that the Australian-spec model will feature e-Pedal, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The new LEAF will also provide an expected real world driving range of up to 270 kilometers (168 miles) per charge (WLTP combined cycle) due, in part, to the larger 40 kWh battery.
Sold at 89 Nissan Dealerships across the country—up from 12 when the LEAF was introduced in 2012—Nissan will have the largest EV sales network in Australia, supported by EV installation experts JET Charge.
JET Charge is Nissan's preferred charger installer at Nissan Dealerships, and for customers is able to fit out homes with charging equipment nationally.
Nissan LEAF has racked up 360,000 global sales.
