Nissan is trying to electrify its used LEAF market in the UK (pun intended), announcing a special campaign to move metal. Strong lease terms and a £1000 kickback on pricing.
A base 24 kWh LEAF in Acenta trim is cited as an example: a used 6,000 mile car, made available on 3-year PCP with £175 customer deposit, £1000 dealer deposit contribution and a £175 ($215) monthly payment (37x) via a 3.9% finance rate APR Representative.
Why could Nissan be offering such a rare incentive program on a used car?
Perhaps because the base 24 kWh LEAF is now being discontinued, or perhaps it the fact that model is about to get a big upgrade (shh, don't tell anyone)...which will make those older inventory cars at dealers a bit less palatable to consumers in the short term anyway..
"Nissan is offering an attractive customer offer on used Nissan LEAF models with deposit and monthly payments from just £175 on select versions of the all-electric vehicle.
Since launching the Nissan LEAF in the UK in 2011, the model has become the best-selling 100% electric car, triggering an accelerated uptake in EV ownership. As a result the number of examples entering the used car market has been increasing recently to meaningful levels making it more accessible than ever before.
With the model’s low maintenance needs and running costs around four times cheaper than that of a conventional combustion engine, buyers are waking up to the attractive proposition of a used electric car as their primary or secondary household vehicle.
As an example offer, a used Nissan LEAF 24kWh Acenta is currently available on a 3-year PCP finance deal for just £175 customer deposit, £1000 dealer deposit contribution and monthly payments of just £175 with 3.9% representative APR.
Buyers also benefit from a minimum 12 month warranty, free Home Charging Unit (worth £390), and Nissan’s Electric Vehicle Customer Promise which includes a Battery Quality Guarantee, free Rapid Charging, EV Roadside Assistance and use of a petrol or diesel car, free of charge, for up to 14 days during the first three years of ownership."
