For me it is about servicing.
Only 3/4 of Nissan dealers n Australia will be getting Leaves, so its a guess if I can get one.
My nearest Tesla store is an overnight ferry trip away (Melbourne AU) so that would be a foolish "business decision".
I like these Nissan features:
1: hatchback. My wife wants a car she can fit any piece of furniture into. Currently have a Citroen C5 hatch, Ford Territory SUV both with racks and towbars.
Have had a few Ford wagons, A Rover SD1 V8 hatch, Datsun 120Y hatch...
2: Vehicle to grid availability. Maybe 2 years , the salesman told me.
3: No other reasons, other than to get into an EV
Longtime forum members will know that I am a TSLA long, and provide a Tesla charger at my Airbnb On The Beach Cottage (com au)
