Electric Leaf from Nissan

The range-topping Nissan Leaf e+ delivers more power and unrivalled reliability, making it the obvious choice for anyone thinking of going electric

The Nissan LEAF e+ Tekna sits at the pinnacle of the LEAF range, delivering advanced Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology to deliver 217PS of performance and up to 239 miles of zero-emissions driving. High-performance lithium-ion batteries are a key component of Nissan electric vehicles. Lightweight and compact, and coupled with high capacity energy storage, Nissan’s battery technology offers a reliable, fuss-free experience. The 62kWh battery pack offered in the Nissan Leaf e+ delivers 55% more capacity while retaining a similar shape and size to the 40kWh LEAF battery pack; all without compromising the vehicle’s exterior design and interior space.

With its more powerful motor, acceleration from 50mph to 75mph is now 13% quicker, enabling the LEAF e+ to confidently manoeuvre and merge seamlessly with fast-moving traffic. The top speed (98 mph) has also increased from the 40kWh version by approximately 10%. LEAF exemplifies Nissan’s Intelligent Integration philosophy with an impressive array of connectivity services. All new LEAF versions include, for example, the Nissan Connect infotainment system as standard, complete with large eight-inch touchscreen. Features such as Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto allow for seamless smartphone connectivity. Customers also benefit from an upgraded navigation system, which features TomTom LIVE premium traffic and route optimisation, as well as the inbuilt Online Map Update facility and Chargers Location function.

The all-new NissanConnect Services app allows users to send navigation routes from their smartphone to their car and vice versa, enabling easier transition from navigation to parking and onwards to final destination. The Remote Climate Control function lets users pre-set air conditioning or heating while their LEAF is still plugged in, while information and analysis on trips and driving style can also be accessed from a smartphone. The LEAF e+ comes with a number of different design options, including a total of 10 body colours and seven two-tone body and roof colour combinations so owners can really personalise their vehicle.

Fine-tuned since the launch of the original LEAF in 2011, an internal thermal management system is installed in every LEAF, ensuring that fast charging performance is optimised for specific driving conditions. The system also maximises battery life and quality for added peace of mind. Every LEAF e+ comes equipped with ProPILOT advanced driving assistance technology as standard. ProPILOT is an advanced driving assistance technology which works on singlelane highways. A ‘hands-on, eyes-on’ system, it allows the car to stop, restart and stay centred in its lane in higher-speed cruising and lower-speed congested traffic scenarios. The technology reduces driving stress and fatigue, enhancing driver confidence behind the wheel. Joining the Nissan Leaf e+ range is a new N-Tec option, limited to just 1,000 vehicles.

Priced at £32,795 on the road (including the Government grant) the LEAF e+ N-TEC offers a new accessible price point for the higher 62kWh capacity battery drivetrain. The N-TEC edition is based on the N-Connecta grade of the 40kWh line-up, but with added technology and styling, complementing the higher capacity 62kWh battery. This includes an LED pack and LED fog lights with cornering function, the ProPILOT technology, electronic parking brake, metallic blue front splitter and revised e+ suspension setup. Smiths Nissan ● Prices for the Nissan LEAF e+ Tekna start at £35,895 on the road, with the LEAF e+ N-Tec option priced at just £32,795.
