23.1.2013 Nissan LEAF price reduced by £2,500
Nissan is making zero-emission mobility more affordable by reducing the price of the all-electric Nissan LEAF by £2,500, now available in 180 Nissan dealerships across the UK.
The change comes as part of a global effort to make the LEAF more affordable in the pioneering electric vehicle's three main markets of Japan, Europe and the United States.
In addition to the reduction in the retail price, UK customers can also benefit from offers including lower rate finance. The new price is effective immediately, ahead of the arrival of an updated version of the LEAF.
This is on top of the incentive offered by the government and means a customer can drive away in a brand new LEAF for £23,490, or just £239 per month.
In addition to the new price, LEAF buyers will also benefit from extremely low running costs, with a battery recharge costing a fraction of the cost of a tank of fuel. Being fully electric, the LEAF also benefits from zero car tax and is currently exempt from company car tax.
An ever-growing number of public charging points also offer quick and convenient opportunities to top up the battery, including a network of rapid chargers. These allow LEAF drivers to charge from zero to 80% capacity in less than 30 minutes.
Since its launch in 2011, about 50,000 units of the LEAF electric vehicle have been sold world-wide, with the US being the dominant market. The LEAF demonstrates that battery-powered cars are ready to make a significant contribution to a world-wide reduction in vehicle emissions.
The Nissan LEAF comes with very high levels of standard equipment. It has a satellite navigation system as standard, rear-view parking camera, rapid charge capability, Intelligent Key, LED headlamps and Bluetooth connectivity. Nissan LEAF has been granted a top 5 star rating in Euro NCAP crash tests.
Production of the updated model is due to start at Nissan European plant in Sunderland, UK, in Spring 2013.
