Default Re: Nissan mulls Leaf electric hatchback for India

I think automakers a missing a point here. Why not have manufacturing base here and export. Costs will be lower. If Tesla can do a Giga factory and Model 3 in india and export it from here and sell it localing won't it be two birds with one shot. Localling assembled Model 3 will be much cheaper than the competition and also Giga factory will also have non-auto uses for its batteries like generators.

Rumour: Nissan might bring Leaf EV to India on trial basis

Nissan is considering a launch of its Leaf electric vehicle in India by the end of this year. The Japanese manufacturer is planning to keep it a low volume initiative in order to gauge customer response.

The above information was shared by Colin MacDonald, CEO and managing director of Renault Nissan Automotive India. Colin also stated that the said plans are still under evaluation and a final decision is yet to be taken. The India-bound model will essentially be the new-generation Leaf, which is expected to be globally unveiled in September 2017.
