THE price of Nissan’s Leaf has been reduced across all trim levels, making the electric hatchback more competitive in an increasingly tough market. The Leaf now starts from £26,355, including the £3,500 Plug-in Car Grant.
Having lost customers to the Volkswagen e-Golf in recent months, the new pricing brings the Leaf into line with aggressive leasing rates offered on the electric VW. Both standard Leaf and longer-range Leaf e+ models are included in new pricing.
It will also keep the Leaf competitive in the new year once the e-Golf has been phased out. VW’s new ID.3 is on the horizon and Nissan has shifted the Leaf’s values accordingly to combat its forthcoming rival.
The Leaf has a range of 168 miles on a single charge, while the Leaf e+ with its larger battery will cover 239 miles. With prices reduced, the UK’s best-selling pure-electric car looks set to continue its success and pick up new leasing customers.
