A future of green mobility
In 1972, Nissan established its headquarters in Australia and manufactured cars for two decades. Recently, the Dandenong South Casting Plant in Victoria won exclusive manufacturing contracts with Nissan Japan to produce castings for the new Nissan LEAF, the first mass-market zero tailpipe emission all-electric car. This will result in future profits and secure jobs for many years.
The Nissan LEAF with vehicle-to-home tech has a 39kWh battery that can power a home for 2-3 days. It’s useful during blackouts and can reduce energy consumption from the grid. EV owners can lower their home power bills by charging the battery with solar power or during off-peak periods.
