“We are also aware that many customers are no longer able or willing to pay the higher prices. For them, we offer alternatives: On the one hand, the possibility to lease our vehicles at attractive conditions thanks to strong residual values, or to purchase young Nissan used vehicles,” says Pelletreau.
