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
