Nissan Announces LEAF into CPO Program

It’s no surprise that the demand for electric cars is continuing to grow among consumers in the United States. Nissan has decided to add the all-electric LEAF to its Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles program. Starting this month, Certified Pre-Owned Nissan LEAF vehicles will be backed by Nissan to provide years of performance and quality at a great value. Nissan is extending the EV system and powertrain warranty coverage to seven years or 100,000 miles in addition to the battery warranty’s that are already in place.

2013 Nissan LEAFDirector of Electric Vehicle Sales and Marketing for Nissan, Erik Gottfried, said “As more Nissan LEAF vehicles enter the used car market, we know it’s important for Nissan to provide the second owners the same confidence in the car that the original owner enjoyed. Adding LEAF to the Nissan Certified Pre-Owned program is a natural next step to strengthen the position of LEAF as the world’s No. 1 all-electric car for the mass market.”

Nissan Certified Pre-Owned vehicles have other benefits such as trip interruption coverage, car rental reimbursement, a no-cost three-month subscription to Sirius-XM Satellite Radio, CARFAX Vehicle History Report with 90-day CARFAX Buyback Guarantee and comprehensive quality assurance vehicle inspection. There are some requirements for a LEAF to qualify for the program, such as less than 60,000 miles. Nissan thinks adding the LEAF to the CPO program will allow more people to experience an EV for themselves.
