Recently a new "limited edition" Nissan LEAF was introduced in Europe for 2016 (also known as Acenta+), this model is slotted higher than the base model, but up to 800 Euros cheaper than the next level offering - while still offering many new premium options.

From the above promo video, we get out first new look at Grandma's fancy new wheel options (215/50R17 Autech alloy wheels with unique blue accents) which we like quite a lot over previous options.

Also as part of the package is better charging options, including 6.6 kW L2 and offering both the Mode 3 Type 2 (7 pin) and the EVSE (3 pin) cable as standard.

We also can't help but notice that Nissan's "The Rescue" promo certainly seems to be touting both a greater distance for the LEAF, while travelling through Death Valley, to refuel an ICE vehicle while has run out of gas.

Perhaps some re-engineering/re-purposing is in store for this spot, as the arrival of an expected longer range/30 kWh 2016 LEAF is expected in mid-September?
