Nissan LEAF Group Buy In Quebec

By Bruno Marcoux

Aref Salem

Aref Salem — Montreal City Councillor – borough of St-Laurent, and member of the City of Montreal’s executive committee — is in charge of Montreal’s electrification plan.

It has been a year that I purchased my 2015 Nissan Leaf. My Nissan salesman made me discover QEVA (Québec Electrical Vehicle Association). I read with interest all the articles published on its website. I also started reading all the sites mentioned as sources on certain QEVA articles. That’s where I fell on an article that explained group buys made by SWEEP (South West Energy Efficiency Project).

I got involved in QEVA and I produced a report that I gave in the course of Montreal’s public consultation of its parking policy. I accompanied this with a brief but heartfelt speech that was very favorable towards electromobility. That’s where I had the pleasure of meeting Aref Salem.

Since the Leafs were purchased at Nissan Gabriel Jean-Talon, I decided to contact them and talk to Sam Karadanaian, the salesman who signed the deal for the 42 Leafs. I explained SWEEP’s group buy initiative in Colorado. They obtained a significant rebate over and above the government incentives, resulting in 248 Nissan Leafs being sold in only a few months. I am very proud to announce that Nissan Gabriel Jean-Talon is ready to do a group buy similar to the one done by SWEEP.


If you are interested in joining, we need to have your names and contact information so we can negotiate a group discount with Nissan Gabriel Jean-Talon. We can’t promise you we will have the same discount as the one obtained by SWEEP, but we will certainly do our best. More names on the list will give us greater power to negotiate. Thanks in advance for your support!

Conseiller de la Ville de Montréal – arrondissement de St-Laurent, membre du comité exécutif de la Ville de Montréal.

Il y a maintenant un an que j’ai acheté ma Nissan Leaf 2015. Mon vendeur Nissan m’a fait découvrir l’AVÉQ. J’ai commencé à lire avec intérêt tous les articles publiés sur le site. J’ai également lu les sites mentionnés comme source sur certains articles de l’AVEQ. C’est là que je suis tombé sur un article qui expliquait le principe des achats de groupes effectués par le SWEEP (South West Energy Efficiency Project).

Je me suis impliqué dans l‘AVEQ et déposé un mémoire lors de la consultation publique pour la politique de stationnement de la Ville de Montréal que j’ai accompagné d’un bref mais vibrant discours très favorable vis-à-vis l’électromobilité. C’est là que j’ai eu la chance de rencontrer Aref Salem.

Comme les Leafs avaient été achetées de Nissan Gabriel Jean-Talon, j’ai alors décidé de les contacter pour parler au vendeur qui avait signé l’entente de 42 Leaf, Sam Karadanaian. Je lui ai expliqué l’initiative d’achat de groupe du programme SWEEP au Colorado. Ils avaient réussi à obtenir une remise additionnelle significative de Nissan en plus de la subvention gouvernementale et ont vendus 248 Nissan Leafs en quelques mois. Je suis très fier de vous annoncer que Nissan Gabriel Jean-Talon est prêt à faire un achat de groupe similaire au programme SWEEP.


Nous avons donc besoin de vos noms et de vos coordonnées afin que l’on puisse négocier une remise avec Nissan Gabriel Jean-Talon. Nous ne pouvons pas vous promettre que nous obtiendrons la même remise que celle de SWEEP, mais nous ferons certainement de notre mieux. Et plus il y aura de noms dans cette liste, plus nous aurons un grand pouvoir de négociation. Merci d’avance pour votre support.
