New Nissan Leaf Starts From £21,990 In The UK

Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, which was the world’s best-selling EV, the new generation Nissan Leaf is now available to order across Britain, with deliveries starting in February.

Pricing stretches between £21,990 ($29,691) and £27,490 ($37,117), for the entry-level Visia and top-of-the-line Tekna, respectively, and it includes the £4,500 ($6,076) Government Grant.

Those on the lookout for a more exclusive model can order the Leaf 2.Zero special edition, which comes in just 1,500 examples, and is positioned between the N-Connecta (£25,990) and Tekna (£27,490), carrying a starting price of £26,490 ($35,767).

Setting the special edition aside are the two exterior color choices called Spring Cloud and Pearl Black, alongside a generous equipment list that include 17-inch alloy wheels, an infotainment system with 7-inch display, six-speaker sound system, and 360-degree camera system. The Leaf 2.Zero also gets a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear black suede-effect bio-fabric seats, ePedal, and ProPilot semi-autonomous driving tech.

Nissan claims that with the extra bits, the 2.Zero represents a £535 ($722) saving over the N-Connecta, if they were specified separately.

Regardless of the trim level, all units of the second-gen Nissan Leaf have 150PS (148hp) and can be driven for up to 235 miles (378km), as per NEDC, on a single charge.

  • Big task for Nissan with that price, since Zoe is much cheaper, and that the Zoe with equivalent range would be slightly cheaper than Leaf.

      Zoe = Fiesta
      Leaf = Focus.

      • I know but if you go to Autocar they group electric car together regardless of the size. And well for hatchback is either smaller Zoe or bigger Leaf. While cars like iOn is rather hopeless at this.

          Nah, don’t listen to Autocar. They know sh1t unless it love for VW or Jag.

          • As a subscriber I do listen to them, Autocar loves JLR much like Evo likes Porsche or Auto Express like German Cars.

    “relatively” cheap

    • For electric car is rather affordable, you can spec up Golf or Focus to that price easily.
