Nissan’s stylish LEAF Black Edition is now on sale in the UK, priced from £26,890 including the £4,500 government plug-in vehicle grant.
The world’s best-selling electric vehicle is now even more attractive with 0% APR representative finance from £199 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.
Stylish exterior features include 16” black alloy wheels, LED headlamps, black door mirror caps and black rear roof spoiler. In addition, the Black Edition is completed with blue-stitched mats to give the interior a premium finish.
The Nissan LEAF Black Edition is equipped with Nissan’s latest innovative technology as standard with each model, including the NissanConnect EV telematics system and Intelligent Around View Monitor.
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.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles at Nissan Europe, said: “The new LEAF Black Edition perfectly showcases Nissan’s commitment to making smart, premium quality products accessible for all. This stylish black number combines dynamic styling, with Nissan’s innovative zero-emission technology to offer customers a city-savvy intelligent mobility solution. Its sleek design compliments an exciting drive, delivered through high-class engineering, demonstrating that you don’t have to compromise on style or performance when purchasing an electric car.”
The limited edition model is on sale in the UK from March for a restricted production run up until August 2017, with the first 200 customers receiving a free Wi-Fi hotspot – capable of pairing with up to eight devices.
Nissan pioneered the electric vehicle movement with the launch of the original Nissan LEAF – the world’s first mass-market electric car – in 2010. Since then, Nissan LEAF owners across the globe have travelled more than two billion electric miles, saving nearly 500 million kilograms of CO2 emissions*.
Today, there are more than 250,000 Nissan LEAFs on the road, making it the best-selling electric vehicle globally. With the LEAF’s 30 kWh battery now offering 155 miles in driving range** driving an electric car is more practical and enjoyable than ever before, providing an easy gateway to a zero-emission future.
