The new 2018 Nissan Leaf at Ingham Nissan

05 July 2018 | News

We’re now turning over a new Leaf!

As if you needed another reason to make the move to an Electric Vehicle, the newly imposed Regional Fuel Tax levy may just be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

Apparently, The Land Transport Management (Regional Fuel Tax) Amendment Act 2018 provides a funding tool for regional councils to raise revenue to fund transport projects that would otherwise be delayed or not funded – Dress it up however you like, but for Aucklanders, as of July 1st, the cost of petrol and diesel has gone up over 11c a litre, and for many drivers, this just adds fuel to the EV fire.

So, driven in part by a seemingly insatiable increase in customer demand, add in the need to save the wallet (and of course the planet), plus a desire from our Master Technicians to ensure they remain true specialists in Electric Vehicles, we are now bringing the award-winning Nissan Leaf into Ingham Nissan – direct from our friends overseas, from their showroom to ours.

We’re selecting the highest spec’d 2018 Leaf 40kWh models available (with an options list nearly too long to print), and carefully transporting these new Electric Vehicles directly to our showroom floor. What’s more, each one is receiving a peace of mind, full health check from our in-house Master Technicians.

Widely regarded as the best EV on the market, the 2nd Generation Nissan Leaf is sleeker looking, more technologically advanced, more powerful, and boasts a much longer range than the previous model. Its Electric motor produces 110kW of power and 320Nm of torque, the fast-charge time of 40 minutes will have the 40kWh lithium-ion battery up to 80% and Nissan has introduced ‘ProPilot’ (semi-autonomous functionality) and e-pedal, to this model.

We’re proud to be offering the new 2018 Nissan Leaf right here in Ingham Nissan, and thanks to the newly imposed regional fuel tax increase, it appears we’re just in time. Why not come into Ingham Nissan today and try it out for yourself.
