Following the news that the German federal government has announced EUR 4,000 in bonuses for electric vehicle customers; Nissan is going one step further in raising the bar to EUR 5,000 for customers of its popular LEAF and e-NV200.
The Nissan LEAF offers 250km of driving range and is available from EUR 18,365 (plus battery rental).
The 4,000 Euro bonus is co-funded, with 50% provided by the manufacturer and the German federal government matching the contribution. Nissan has taken the decision to extend the offer, with an additional 1,000 Euros on the table to take the subsidy up to Euro 5,000.
The news comes as Nissan announces sales of 16,916 electric cars in Europe for the 2015-16 fiscal year, a new annual record. The Nissan LEAF continues to lead the electric vehicle segment globally.
As the manufacturer of the Nissan LEAF and the world’s first electric commercial vehicle, the e-NV200, Nissan has supported 100 percent electric mobility since 2010. The manufacturer has invested four billion euros in e-mobility projects to date.
