Nissan has appointed its network of dealers who will be supplying the Nissan LEAF, when deliveries start in March 2011 in the UK.
The outlets will be fully equipped to sell and service the Nissan LEAF from February 2011. The dealers have been chosen to give the best regional coverage for Nissan LEAF customers and for their commitment to customer service.
All 24 Nissan EV dealers will have a fast charge facility which will allow EV customers to charge their Nissan LEAF up to 80% capacity in 30 minutes. This network of fast chargers will mean that over 90% of the UK population are no more than 50 miles from a fast charger.
The Nissan LEAF dealers will have a sales specialist, an EV Relationship Manager (EVRM), who will act as a single point of contact at the dealership for LEAF customers.
The EVRM will be put through an intensive training programme to understand all aspects of owning and driving the 100% electric car and will be able to assist Nissan LEAF customers with any queries they may have. In addition, a dedicated call centre has been set up to assist customers with questions.
Paul Willcox, managing director of Nissan Motor (GB) Limited said: “The appointment of the Nissan EV network is another milestone in the launch of the Nissan LEAF here in the UK. We are confident that this network of dealers will provide the best service for our customers who have already ordered a Nissan LEAF, and offer the best advice to those who are yet to take the plunge.”
