Nissan launch new MY20 LEAF electric car range
New technology, new specifications and lower pricing for Nissan’s best selling electric car
Nissan has announced the start of production of its new MY20 LEAF range, which includes a new entry-level 62kWh model and lower on-the-road pricing for the range-topping Tekna e+.
Specification enhancements to both 40kWh and 62kWh versions include the introduction of an Intelligent Rearview Mirror on Tekna models, shark fin antenna as standard from N-Connecta, Blindspot Intervention on all grades, and the addition of telescopic adjustment on the steering wheel.
The introduction of the e+ N-Connecta to the LEAF range creates a new entry-level for 62kWh battery capacity models. LEAF e+ N-Connecta versions start from £32,695 including £3,000 plug-in car grant (PiCG).
This new 62kWh grade matches the specification offered on N-Connecta 40kWh while benefiting from a higher capacity battery. This delivers 239 miles (385km) of range and up to 217PS power with340Nm of torque and a 0-62mph (0-100kph) time of 6.9 seconds.
Meanwhile, the price of the range-topping e+ Tekna 62kWh has been reduced by £1,685 to £34,710. The limited edition 62kWh N-TEC has already redefined segment value for long-range electric car driving and today’s pricing adjustment on e+ Tekna means that for only £1,415 more, a customer can access this incremental specification. This repositioning places the LEAF range extremely competitively against the competition.
LEAF Acenta and N-Connecta 40kWh and LEAF N-TEC 62kWh see no price changes, with only Tekna 40kWh versions receiving a price adjustment of £315 to include Nissan’s Intelligent Rearview Mirror as standard.
