He said that Nissan sent them hundreds of extra chargers for some reason, and his supervisor told him at some point to just get rid of all the extras. He said they literally threw dozens of them away, along with extra key fobs. He held on to a few of them and has slowly sold them off over the last couple years. They were all like new, unlike the one that came with my car.
I know enough about the car business to know he wasn't making this stuff up.
He said that they even got a visit from some of the top brass from Nissan a few years back when the Leafs started coming off lease and they were being wholesaled for $8-10K. They had obviously misjudged the market for these cars.
His former boss told him to "get rid of all the extras" by selling them and putting the money is his pocket. Riiiight. They threw away dozens of items that the parts desk was selling for bucks. Riiight.
It's just conjecture on my part, but these things sure sound like stolen merch.
