Nissan is keen to enter the Indian EV market and it has finalized the world famous Leaf EV already. The electric vehicle will be launched here in late 2018 and as we have reported already, it will be sold as a CBU (Completely Built Unit) instead of being manufactured locally. For this, the EV is expected to be priced between Rs 40-50 lakh.

The Nissan Leaf EV is currently world’s bestselling electric vehicle and the car sells every 20 minutes in Europe. However, the Japanese brand is not expecting big success with the Leaf EV in India, but this will surely boost the electric vehicle market in the country. The second generation Leaf EV is powered by a 40 kWh battery pack that kicks out 138 bhp of peak power and it can run up to 400 km on a single charge.

A big challenge in front of the Nissan Leaf EV is going to be the lack of charging infrastructure. Till the charging infrastructure is available across the country, Nissan will be able to sell the electric hatchback only in some parts of India. Interestingly, this is going to be the first long range EV in India.

Presently, Mahindra and Tata Motors sell their electric vehicles in India. Apart from that, several other car brands have already announced their electric vehicles for the market. Indian government too is emphasizing on the electric mobility in India and in this scenario, a car like Nissan Leaf EV will come with significant importance.
