Nissan France Discounts The LEAF And The Various e-NV200 Trim Levels To Match Future Rebates

In France a new rebate system that pays out up to 10 000 € ($12,600 USD) in rebate money when switching from a diesel vehicle to an electric one goes into effect in the middle of 2015.

Which sounds good, except for that any persons currently zipping around in a old smog machine will now ardently cling onto that diesel vehicle until they day that goes into place.  Translation: they won’t be trading up to an EV anytime soon.

Nissan, apparently unwilling to sacrifice sales over the next 8 months or so, has decided to take it upon themselves to help promote their lineup of EVs (LEAF and e-NV200) by upping the discount on both models so that customers still receive the full 10 000 € bonus before the program actually begins.

This means that a new Nissan LEAF can now be had for as little as  € 14,390 ($18,200 USD) w/battery rental (which starts at  €99/month)

According to Nissan France (and please forgive my Canadian-learned French translation):

Effective October 15th to December 31st, 2014, Nissan is offering customers savings of up to € 10,000, which including the environmental bonus of € 6,300, plus the recovery of € 2,200 for a diesel vehicle over 10 years old, as well as a further € 1,500 discount.

This program affects the following models:

LEAF (Visia edition with battery rental): from € 14,390 VAT

  • With trade of a diesel vehicle over 10 years old
  • No geographical restriction
  • Hertz offers pickups and SNCF Car / Train included

e-NV200 van (Visia edition with battery rental): from € 10,610 HT

  • With trade of a diesel vehicle over 10 years old
  • No geographical restriction

e-NV200 Evalia (Visia edition with battery rental): from € 20,870 VAT

  • With trade of a diesel vehicle over 10 years
  • No geographical restriction
  • Hertz offers pickups and SNCF Car / Train included

    Is Nissan making money with those sort of discounts? If so, then it sounds like the car may be overpriced to begin with.

      As you can see in the text, the diesel rebatte is only 2.2k €. I think the other rebattes are already in place in france, so Nissan only adds this discount on their own checke. Still nice to get a discount, but i don’t think its overpriced. It’s marketing, more people get to know the Nissan products and because no other company does so at the moment, you can be sure that all are coming to you. Nice way to gain market share… 😉

        “Nice way to gain market share”

        Think you are right. I could find only about 200 sales for the NV200e for all of Europe so far in 2014,

        The most was France with 127 sales, then Norway with 49 and the rest were spread out one or two, here and there.

        Maybe this rebate will help them to get rolling.

    Go France! They need to replace all their little gas/diesel delivery trucks with the eNV-200. They can power up them at night with all the excess electricity they have at night due to all their nuke plants which can’t really be throttled and then drive emissions free during the day.

    Their postal service should run on those little Nissans.

    Be an example for the world, France.

    Where did you find this information (weblink please)? I live in France and I’m in for a Leaf. So for me this is NEWS!

      Bonjour Paul,

      I’m not sure Nissan has done any public spots on it yet (although I am sure they will do it shortly), then sent out a note from Nissan Media-France though. You can find it here (en français of course)
