I've been thinking about buying a Nissan Leaf for my around town driving (95% of it). 


This morning, I checked the Nissan web site ...and found it appeared to be down completely. 


When it came back toward mid-day, the Nissan Leaf was nowhere to be found. 


It's gone. 


Googling "Nissan LEAF NZ" gets me the weblink for the LEAF.....but it now 404's.


OK.....I can get an imported LEAF from an importer.....but I was looking for the brand new real, local deal. :-(

Friend who has one and is active in the owners groups mentioned that Nissan had sold out several months ago and third party importers were the only sources now.


Nissan had dropped the price of the Leafs by $20k from when they originally went on sale from $60k (see the AA web-article on electric cars) to $40k so he was wondering whether they just dropped the price to clear them.


Was/am thinking of getting one as a second car for round town but would prefer to buy from dealer for warrantee etc.


I wonder what will happen now....


If the website gone 404, I worry it suggests they have abandoned them rather than waiting for the new version..

I have one of those heavy duty extension leads in my boot with my 8amp EVSE just in case... I used it when I got stuck down in Queenstown, I checked up on it regularly and it only got slightly warm to the touch
