Nissan has to do what it can to pass the time until the 2nd generation LEAF debuts this September - and for the UK, that means releasing the "Black Edition LEAF", a color scientifically proven to make the driver cooler according to our Editor-in-Chief...and to Batman.

The Japanese company's first generation flagship comes on the market after netting some 250,000 sales, and will be offered (not surprisingly) only from March to August 2017.

In the UK, the Black Edition LEAF is priced from £26,890 ($32,800), after £4,500 government plug-in vehicle grant.

The Nissan LEAF Black Edition is based on Acenta trim with set of additional features like:

  • exclusive black 16” alloy wheels
  • black door mirror caps
  • black roof spoiler
The first 200 customers in UK (1,000 in Europe) also receive a free Wi-Fi hotspot – capable of pairing with up to eight devices.

"The world’s best-selling electric vehicle is now even more attractive with 0% APR representative finance from £207 per month with no minimum deposit, free insurance in the first year, free servicing in the first two years and a £1,000 Nissan deposit contribution.

Based on the Acenta grade, the Nissan LEAF Black Edition offers cutting-edge design to enhance the LEAF’s smooth and near silent ride with an exclusive new look.

With instantaneous torque, optimised ride and handling and a chassis engineered specifically for UK drivers, the Nissan LEAF delivers a fun and exciting drive every time, but the Black Edition takes it one step further with a stylish new look."
