This is the question Nissan is really asking….Are you an idiot?
Some customers have “failed” a Nissan test to see if they were suitable for the new Leaf electric car.
Nissan has knocked back some customers interested in purchasing its first electric car, the Leaf, because they have been deemed â€śunsuitableâ€ť for ownership.
The plug-in electric vehicle officially hits the market on June 1, but interested customers need to pass a two-stage approval test before being issued with a certificate that will allow them to purchase the $51,500 car from one of Nissanâ€™s special EV dealerships.
The test involves answering five questions about their intended usage for the car, followed by a visit from Nissanâ€™s electrical supplier Origin Energy for an assessment of the suitability of the customerâ€™s home electrical network.
