Nissan preparing to expand its UK dealership network with the launch of Leaf EV

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 2, 2010

Nissan has reached another milestone in the UK launch of the 2011 LEAF electric vehicle as it announces its dealer network. Deliveries are expected to begin in March 2011 in the UK.

But starting in February 2011, these dealerships will already be fully capable of selling and servicing the new Nissan. The company appointed its dealer network with a goal to have the best possible coverage of the country, while continuing its commitment to customer service.

Fast charge devices will be installed in each of the 24 dealers to enable EV customers to get their Nissan LEAF charged up to 80% capacity in 30 minutes. Because of how this network is spread out, more than 90% of the UK population are no more than 50 miles from a charger.

Each center will have a new sales specialist who will serve as the single point of contact between the dealership and electric vehicle customers.

Those who have ordered a Leaf could now pick the dealer where they want to fetch their car from. As soon as the customer has chosen a dealer, the EVRM (EV Relationship Manager) in the area will give them a call and will offer the opportunity to test drive the Nissan EV.

The customers will then be able to officially place their order and pick out any options they may prefer. Paul Willcox, Managing Director of Nissan Motor (UK) Limited, said that he is confident that the dealer network will provide the “best service” for those who have already placed their orders for a Nissan Leaf.

He also believes that these dealers will provide the “best advice” to those who have yet to decide on making the purchase.
