Importing 2013-2017 Nissan leaf from japan

Post by eleon00 » Sat, 07 Jul 2018, 16:55


I was browsing through sevs list and found out that the Nissan leaf is allowed in the list for model AZE0 made between 2013-2017. I was wondering if someone here has successfully imported one from Japan? What was the experience like? And how much did it all cost you "driveway." Any tips?

Thank you!

To the best of my knowledge, the only Nissan EV on the SEV list is the NV200 van. SEV rules apply to low volume special interest vehicles and prohibit vehicles already sold locally in volume by the manufacturer.

I imported a Minicab through JSpec without major problems and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. The costs are clearly laid out on the JSpec website.

Just checked the SEV list and discovered C88/01 MA Nissan Leaf AZEO 01/06/2013 to 31/09/2017 is indeed listed. That said, AZEO does appear to be the same vehicle Nissan imported a shipload of from the UK in 2011 or 2012. I wonder if some muppet stuffed up and what 'should' be listed is the NV200 ?
