Price reductions for Nissan LEAF 40kWh and 62kWh unlocks the full range of Nissan electric cars for revised plug-in car grant
Nissan joins a long list of car brands, including Citroën, MG, Peugeot and Vauxhall, helping customers get the best value following government grant cuts
Nissan has confirmed price reductions of both 40kWh and 62kWh versions of its award-winning LEAF electric vehicle, effective from April. As a result, all grades of LEAF and both 40kWh and 62kWh battery capacities are eligible for the revised Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £2,500, which is offered on electric vehicles under £35,000.
The reduced on-the-road price makes the LEAF range one of the most accessible C-segment hatchback electric cars, starting from just £25,995 on-the-road (including PICG).
The changes to the plug-in car grant came into effect on 18 March 2021. The changes included a reduction from £3,000 to £2,500 towards the purchase price of electric vehicles costing £35,000 or less. This was previously available on cars up to £50,000.
Updated pricing for the LEAF range, including the £2,500 government grant, offers some big savings. The LEAF Accent (40kWh) will now cost £25,995 saving £1,350 and both the LEAF N-Connecta (40kWh) and LEAF 10 Version (40kWh) offer a saving of £650, now costing £27,995 and £28,670 respectively. The LEAF Tekna sees a price drop of £665 to cost £29,995.
The biggest savings can be seen on the longer-range 62kWh versions of the LEAF e+ Connecta and LEAF e+ Tekna which see price drops of £5,250 and £5,265. On-the-road prices for these two is now £30,445 and £32,445 respectively.
