Nissan Delivers Just 60 LEAF Electric Cars In Japan
TOKYO -- Nissan Motor Co has only delivered about 60 units of its Leaf electric vehicle in Japan as of Friday even though it has already taken 6,000 orders due to be sold by March 31, informed sources said Monday. Nissan attributed the slow pace to the need for careful work in the manufacturing process but denied any delay of the delivery of the pre-ordered cars.
‘‘As it is our first major project to mass produce EVs, we began building them with caution…Production lines are working fine so we expect to fill the orders as planned,’’ a Nissan official said.
The Leaf has not been selling as fast as expected since it hit the market Dec 20 partly because it takes time for consumers to complete the procedure for receiving a government subsidy for EVs, according to Nissan officials.
