Nissan LEAF UK Prices Announced — Full List

January 2nd, 2018 by  


Nissan hasn’t publicly announced 2019 Nissan LEAF pricing and specs (even though we found some scoops about those), but it has just released the full range of pricing for this year’s version of the “world’s best-selling electric vehicle.” (Technically, the LEAF is no longer the best selling electric car in the world — the BAIC EC-Series is — but it has still seen the most customer deliveries in history.)

In the UK, the first customer deliveries of the New LEAF begin in February 2018. Nissan reports that entry-grade Visia models start at just £21,990 (including the £4,500 UK government grant for fully electric cars). The prices rise as high as £33,655 (also including the government grant) for the range-topping, fully equipped Tekna trim.

Here’s a list of OTR pricing after the £4,500 government grant:

  • Visia — From £21,990

  • Acenta — From £24,290

  • N-Connecta — From £25,990

  • 2.Zero (Special Version — From £26,490)

  • Tekna — From £27,490

Nissan continues to point out the significant update to the earlier models. The 2018 Nissan LEAF has hit the ground running, thanks in part to the new generation shape shifting to another form and strengthening itself with sporty new styling, advanced technologies (including ProPILOT), and a higher capacity battery. The Nissan LEAF’s e-Pedal technology is another pioneering technology that is one step forward in regenerative braking and one-pedal driving, benefits of electric cars that drivers quickly learn to love. Drivers can accelerate, decelerate, and stop using just the e-Pedal — that is, without touching the brake at all.

The new LEAF has a 50% increase in range, reaching up to 235 miles (380 km) according to the NEDC system (or 150 miles more realistically) and also benefits from a less discussed 38% increase in power, to 150PS. At the same time, the OTR price can end up £1,500 lower than the previous generation.

Carl Bayliss, EV Category Manager Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd., said: “With the New Nissan LEAF, all-electric motoring has never been more viable or affordable for almost any motorist. EV running costs are around 85% less than petrol or diesel cars and maintenance is almost 75% cheaper. There are £0 VED, free London Congestion Charge and even free parking in some cities, not to mention convenient home charging. It’s not surprising unprecedented numbers of drivers are making the switch and going electric.”

UK customers looking to be one of the first owners of the all-new Nissan LEAF can also now benefit from a “competitive contract purchase” on the exclusive 2.ZERO special version. Is it time to make the switch to electric that you’ve been longing to make?

“With a £5,138 customer deposit, combined with £1,000 dealer deposit contribution, monthly payments are just £339 on a 3 year/10,000 annual mileage PCP with 4.49% APR. The New LEAF 2.ZERO special version is positioned between N-Connecta and the range-topping Tekna grade.” The downsides: this offer is limited to just 1,500 models and it’s available in only two colours — Spring Cloud and Pearl Black. Specs are as follows:

  • ProPILOT

  • ePedal

  • stylish 17” alloy wheels

  • front and rear heated black suede-effect bio-fabric seats

  • heated steering wheel

  • NissanConnect EV 7” touchscreen infotainment with six-speaker sound system

  • Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection and Intelligent Driver alertness

“The additional features installed on 2.ZERO versions represent a £535 saving against N-Connecta models if they were specified separately.”

Looking ahead is what we do here at CleanTechnica, while reporting the daily turns and trends. “Some quietly broken news this past week was that the 2019 Nissan LEAF is expected to have 225 miles of range, potentially trolling the base Tesla Model 3 by 5 miles.” A solar energy couple I know was one of the first to have a solar water heater at least 30 years ago, plus report an electric bill of $1 at their large office building. They still drive a hybrid, waiting for the prices to come down and the range to go up on all-electric cars. They believe many EVs will come up in range, offering even better deals. Nissan may continue to lead on this front. Net-zero driving is what we want to see. People like this couple can easily charge with 100% solar energy. Maybe soon?

Considering the 2018 Nissan LEAF range vs pre-2018 LEAF range, here’s a reminder (from our EV driver report) that a solid percentage of EV drivers saya they don’t need more than 160 miles of range:
