Nissan Leaf gets a price cut in Portugal

Nissan Leaf's price in Portugal

A month ago Nissan dropped the Leaf’s price in France by 1.400 €, a month later it’s Portugal’s time to get a 1.000 € price cut.


As you can see in the screenshot above, the Nissan Leaf now has a starting price of 22.840 € – with 2.250 € Government incentive included. You can ignore the 24 kWh battery version since in reality it’s no longer available, the same can be said about the Flex option (battery leasing).


It’s no surprise that Portugal is getting better prices for both the Renault Zoe and Nissan Leaf sooner than other countries. The main reason is its temperature. The next week temperature forecast of 24º C for Lisbon is the perfect scenario to test drive an electric car for the first time. The warm temperature will contribute for a higher predicted range figure on the guess-o-meter, which is essential for a good first impression. The same scenario can’t be found in most Europeans countries where sub-zero temperatures are frequent at this time of the year…


To better grasp the different realities let’s check the two examples below.

Even with a much higher Government incentive to buy an electric car (6.000 €) and lower VAT, in France the same Nissan Leaf Visia with the 30 kWh battery is more expensive than it’s in Portugal, it costs 25.900 €, instead of 22.840 €.

In Germany the scenario is even worst, the 24 kWh battery and Flex options are still available.


Nevertheless, it’s just a question of time until we see the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance highly promoting their electric cars in every major market. Across the ocean, in the USA the discounts to buy/lease a 2017 Nissan Leaf are already really good.

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. I’m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.

Leaf deputs in April insideevs writes, nit in Geneva. Hopefully the spy shots are from a Leaf which is ready to go in production in next months.

I have given up on guessing on when we will see Leaf 2.0 It could be just after March 31 (the end of Nissan’s Power 88 initiative). Or based on the change in the CARB credit rules (MY 2017 Leaf is worth 3 CARB credits but MY 2018 will only be worth 2), it might make sense for Nissan to delay Leaf 2.0 until January 2018. Especially if 1.0 remains the best selling EV world-wide.
Either way, I just hope they end up with a great looking car with at least a couple of battery size / range options.

Pedro: this is interesting regarding Nissan e-nv200
This suggest new Nissan e-nv200 with 36 kWh within a year.
