Nissan Leaf EV Price Cut by £2,500

Nissan Leaf EV just got more affordable, thanks to a price cut by £2,500, which is effective immediately, ahead of the arrival of an updated version of the Leaf.

After a £5,000 government grant, the final price-tag is £23,490, or £239 per month.

About 50,000 Nissan Leaf electric vehicles have been sold worldwide, since its launch in 2011.

Production of the updated model is due to start at Nissan European plant in Sunderland in a couple of months, bringing both exterior and interior updates, along with an increase luggage space. The weight of the Leaf is also down by 80kg, thanks mainly to a new high voltage unit.

Engineers also reduced power consumption by improving heat-pump cabin heater, heated seat for all seats, heated steering wheel and heat shield ceiling. In addition changes to the regenerative brake control system enable more efficient power generation when the brakes are operated.

As a result the updated Leaf has a range of up to 124 miles from a full charge.

The updated model clearly is a big improvement and worth waiting so there is no point to hurry right now if you have been thinking about buying the Leaf.
