Nissan UK announced full range pricing for the next generation of the world’s best-selling electric vehicle.
With first customer deliveries of the New LEAF starting in February 2018, entry-grade Visia models are available from just £21,990 (including £4,500 Government Grant), rising to £33,655 (also including Govt. Grant) for range-topping fully equipped Tekna grade versions.
The OTR range pricing below includes the £4,500 Government Grant which is offered to the lowest-emissions vehicles:
– Visia – From £21,990
– Acenta – From £24,290
– N-Connecta – From £25,990
– Zero (Special Version – From £26,490)
– Tekna – From £27,490
The all-new Nissan LEAF offers a significant update over the previous model with dynamic new styling, advanced technologies – including ProPILOT – and a higher capacity battery.
On top of these improvements, there’s a 50% increase in range to 235miles (NEDC) and a 38% increase in power to 150PS compared to the outgoing model, yet the OTR price is up to £1,500 lower than previous generation (see table at end of release for pricing comparisons).
Carl Bayliss, EV Category Manager Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd., said; ‘With the New Nissan LEAF, all-electric motoring has never been more viable or affordable for almost any motorist. EV running costs are around 85% less than petrol or diesel cars and maintenance is almost 75% cheaper. There’s £0 VED, free London Congestion Charge and even free parking in some cities, not to mention convenient home charging. It’s not surprising unprecedented numbers of drivers are making the switch and going electric.’
Customers looking to be one of the first owners of the all-new Nissan LEAF, can now benefit from a competitive contract purchase on the exclusive 2.ZERO special version.
With a £5,138 customer deposit, combined with £1,000 dealer deposit contribution, monthly payments are just £339 on a 3 year/10,000 annual mileage PCP with 4.49% APR.
Limited to just 1,500 models, the New LEAF 2.ZERO special version is positioned between N-Connecta and the range-topping Tekna grade, and is available in two colours: Spring Cloud and Pearl Black. A generous specification includes:
– stylish 17” alloy wheels
– front and rear heated black suede-effect bio-fabric seats
– heated steering wheel
– NissanConnect EV 7” touchscreen infotainment with six speaker sound system
– Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection and Intelligent Driver alertness
The additional features installed on 2.ZERO versions represent a £535 saving against N-Connecta models if they were specified separately.
The New LEAF is also the first Nissan model in Europe to be equipped with Nissan’s autonomous ProPILOT technology and e-Pedal, which allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop – simply by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator.
