Is the Leaf for sale at this dealership? I was at the dealership a few years ago, and it was not for sale there at this time. I don't speak Spanish so it is difficult for me to tell if things are updated. I do see the Leaf mentioned on the web page, but maybe that is just a standard web page setup with no tie-in to what is available at the dealership:https://www.nissannogales.com.mx/modelo ... electricos
I also do not see any indication on plugshare.com that there is a charge station.
Anyway, I don't know if it's for sale there or not, but it is a city of 200,000+ people and my impression is they would like to sell the vehicle. There is a separate matter of whether the Leaf is designed from the standpoint of thermal management and battery degradation in such a way that maybe it should not be sold in Mexico, but Nissan seems to think it is ok to sell in Mexico. So, if that is true, please consider selling it in Nogales, Mexico.
It is the closest Nissan dealership to me, but as to whether I would buy one there: it is unlikely because
- I already had a very bad experience with battery degradation in my 2012 Leaf and although I'm sure Nissan has made great strides, I've heard mixed comments from other drivers as to whether a battery does well in this local climate.
- I am not getting involved with another a new vehicle (avoidance of paying the depreciation on a new vehicle is a main reason).
- I am not sure about the issues importing the vehicle to the US.
With all that said, 4 or 6 years from now, once the e+ has aged in the market and if the battery shows signs that it is doing better than I fear it might in the local climate, then would I consider buying a used one there? Yes.
