The new 2nd generation Nissan LEAF goes on sale in the UK costing from £26490 (after taxpayer grant), initially as a 2.ZERO Limited Edition.
The second generation Nissan LEAF was finally revealed last month as Nissan turned their oddly styled ground-breaking mass market electric car in to a proper looking offering.
Gone is the odd styling the LEAF has ‘enjoyed’ since it arrived, and in comes a convincing offering looking like the Micra’s grown-up sibling.
The vastly improved look is good start for the new LEAF, but so is what lurks beneath its new more appealing bodywork.
The batteries grow to 40kWh and promise an official range of 235 miles (which should be 175 miles in the real world), and the new electric motor delivers 147bhp, giving the new LEAF much more appealing performance in the process.
To start UK sales the only offering is a Limited Edition LEAF 2.ZERO, which comes with a decent spec to make it preoperly appealing.
That includes 17″ alloys, Privacy, High Beam Assist, 7″ TFT Screen, e-Pedal, Climate, auto lights and wipers, Sat Nav, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, ProPilot, Intelligent Cruise, Intelligent AroundView Monitor, Emergency Braking, Lane Departure warning and Blind Spot Warning.
Now on sale at Nissan’s UK dealers, the new LEAF 2.ZERO Limited Edition costs from £26,490 and first customer cars will arrive in January 2018.
