2018 Nissan LEAF
Nissan announced pricing for the new 2018 LEAF in UK, where despite major improvements over the old LEAF, the next generation model is actually up to £1,500 cheaper than the previous generation.
There are four trim levels (and the 2.ZERO special version that was available after the premier) that start from £21,990 (≈$29,800) after the UK's £4,500 plug-in car grant.
- Visia – From £21,990 (≈$29,800)
- Acenta – From £24,290 (≈32,926)
- N-Connecta – From £25,990 (≈$35,230)
- 2.Zero (Special Version of 1,500 units – From £26,490)
- Tekna – From £27,490 (≈$37,250)
The new LEAF should be the best-selling EV in UK. It offers ≈150 miles of EPA range, and 0-60 mph in less than 9 seconds. British consumers will certainly appreciate that it's made in Sunderland too.
Carl Bayliss, EV Category Manager Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd., said:
‘With the New Nissan LEAF, all-electric motoring has never been more viable or affordable for almost any motorist. EV running costs are around 85% less than petrol or diesel cars and maintenance is almost 75% cheaper. There’s £0 VED, free London Congestion Charge and even free parking in some cities, not to mention convenient home charging. It’s not surprising unprecedented numbers of drivers are making the switch and going electric.’
About the 2.ZERO version:
"Customers looking to be one of the first owners of the all-new Nissan LEAF, can now benefit from a competitive contract purchase on the exclusive 2.ZERO special version.
With a £5,138 customer deposit, combined with £1,000 dealer deposit contribution, monthly payments are just £339 on a 3 year/10,000 annual mileage PCP with 4.49% APR.
Limited to just 1,500 models, the New LEAF 2.ZERO special version is positioned between N-Connecta and the range-topping Tekna grade, and is available in two colours: Spring Cloud and Pearl Black. A generous specification includes:
The additional features installed on 2.ZERO versions represent a £535 saving against N-Connecta models if they were specified separately.
- stylish 17” alloy wheels
- front and rear heated black suede-effect bio-fabric seats
- heated steering wheel
- NissanConnect EV 7” touchscreen infotainment with six speaker sound system
- Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection and Intelligent Driver alertness
The New LEAF is also the first Nissan model in Europe to be equipped with Nissan’s autonomous ProPILOT technology and e-Pedal, which allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop – simply by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator."
