Malaysian Nissan distributor Edaran Tan Chong Motor have announced the pricing for the Nissan Leaf on their website. The Nissan Leaf is listed with a price tag of RM168,800 on the road, which is significantly less than the RM200k price tag indicated by a research house earlier.

There’s not much other details to go by for now, but as the Nissan Leaf will be officially launched at KLIMS13 later this week, we’ll be back with more details then. As the Leaf needs a special higher amperage charging point to be installed at your house (unlike the i-MIEV which can use a normal wall socket), we need to know details on what the cost of installing the charger is.

The Nissan Leaf will be the second EV to go on sale in Malaysia, after the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, which goes for RM136k. A Tan Chong subsidiary called First Energy Networks (FEN) has so far set up EV charging stations at Bangsar Shopping Centre, Suria KLCC and Lot 10 as well as Petronas Solaris in Serdang. Learn more about the FEN charging infrastructure here.

We’ve test driven the Nissan Leaf, and you can read all about it here. Even better is the detailed account of Daniel Yap, who was an ambassador for the Nissan Leaf pilot program – he drove the EV for six weeks.
