NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --As demand for electric cars
continues to grow among U.S. consumers, Nissan is adding the all-electric LEAF
to its Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles program. Beginning in September, Certified
Pre-Owned Nissan LEAF vehicles will be backed by the company to provide years
of quality and performance at a great value.



In addition to the existing 8-year/100,000 mile* battery warranty coverage
protecting against defects in materials and workmanship, and 5 year/60,000
mile* coverage for battery capacity loss below 9 bars of capacity as shown by
the vehicle's battery capacity level gauge, Nissan will extend the EV system
and powertrain warranty coverage to 7 years or 100,000 miles*.

Erik Gottfried, director of Electric Vehicle Sales and Marketing for Nissan
said: "As more Nissan LEAF vehicles enter the used car market, we know it's
important for Nissan to provide the second owners the same confidence in the
car that the original owner enjoyed. Adding LEAF to the Nissan Certified
Pre-Owned program is a natural next step to strengthen the position of LEAF as
the world's No. 1 all-electric car for the mass market."

Other benefits offered with Nissan Certified Pre-Owned vehicles include:

  oComprehensive quality assurance vehicle inspection
  oCARFAX® Vehicle History Report with 90-day CARFAX Buyback Guarantee ®
  o24-hour emergency roadside assistance
  oA no-cost, three-month subscription to Sirius-XM Satellite Radio
  oCar rental reimbursement
  oTrip interruption coverage

To qualify for the CPO program, a Nissan LEAF must have less than 60,000
miles, be less than 5 years from its original in-service date, have a clear
CARFAX vehicle history report and pass a 167-point comprehensive quality
inspection. The vehicle must also have a minimum of 9 bars of battery
capacity, out of 12 total, as represented on the vehicle battery capacity
level gauge.

At the beginning of the program, Nissan will offer special finance rates as
low as 0.9 percent for 36 months on certified pre-owned LEAF vehicles through
Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.
