According to a dealer I spoke with, the Irish XE (UK Visia) trim, which do not have a "computer console" appeal to older generations of buyers, who do not feel comfortable operating anything computer-related. This is a significant portion of their sales. At one point 61% of Leaf sales in Japan went to older customer, 50 and over, while the 60 year old and older buyers made a whopping 35% of Leaf purchases, according to this report. The chances are this segment has remained a large one.Anyway still feel Nissan should ditch the Visia and make the Acenta 24kWh and the Tekna 30 kWh and rethink trim and options. So much simplier.
Although I am in neither of those age brackets, I believe I should be thankful to them for the softer ride that Leaf offers compared to the other BEVs I have tried.
I would also respectfully suggest that only Nissan, and maybe their dealers, are in a good position to know which trim levels to keep or ditch.
