Nissan LEAF Black Edition now on sale

Nissan has recently officially announced the arrival of an all-new Nissan LEAF electric car set, to be revealed in September this year.  As a final hurrah, Nissan has launched a feature packed special edition – now available to order from £26,890 including the £4,500 government plug-in vehicle grant.

Based on the mid-range Acenta trim level, the Nissan LEAF Black Edition sports 16” black alloy wheels, LED headlamps, black door mirror caps, a black rear spoiler and is finished off with blue-stitched mats to give the interior a premium finish.

The 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, 250,000 cars have been sold where owners across the globe have travelled more than two billion electric miles.

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.
