Nissan is offering free repairs for owners of its new electric Nissan LEAGUE cars, a move that comes as the automaker seeks to boost sales in the United States.
The automaker said Tuesday it will offer free car maintenance for the first time, giving owners the option to replace the battery and transmission if the vehicles do not run properly or run on the battery.
The company will also offer free battery repairs on all LEAGUES, including the LEAF, the new Leaf X and the new LEAF Hybrid.
Nissan did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The announcement comes as Nissan is battling with Tesla Motors Inc. and other automakers to win the electric-vehicle market.
Tesla’s Model 3, which debuted last week, has led sales of the Model S sedan in the U.S. and the Model X crossover SUV in Canada.
It also has the most sales in China, where it is sold with a battery pack similar to that of the new Model 3.
Nasa has said it plans to build a network of Nissan Leaf dealers in the country.
