It's quite a bit more pricey than the outgoing version, but it's vastly improved too.

Nissan France released the price list for the next generation  2018 LEAF, which initially will be offered only in limited edition 2.ZERO from €36,990 (nearly $44,000).

The new LEAF will eventually be available in four trims (prices without incentives):

  • Visia: €33,900 (around $40,200)
  • Acenta: €35,300
  • N-Connecta: €37,100
  • Tekna: €38,900 (around $46,100)
Both the base Visia and top Tekna are €2,000 pricier than the previous generation, but you get a 6.6 kW on-board charger and CHAdeMO inlet as standard.

More than 750 orders were received for the limited edition 2.ZERO, which means that the demand for the new LEAF is tremendous.

It will far exceed the first generation sales. We can almost guarantee it.

Soon, Nissan should announce prices in other European countries.

On a related note, Nissan started U.S. production of the 2018 LEAF just yesterday. Deliveries will begin in January in the States.
