LEAF celebrates anniversary with special model
Nissan is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the launch of the first mass-market electric car, the LEAF, with a special model showcasing advanced technologies.
Nissan has introduced the LEAF10, a special edition of the popular all-electric car, to celebrate 10 successful years of sales as the first mass-market EV in the world.
Available in UK dealerships from this month, it introduces a new bold body colour to the Nissan palette, complemented by exquisite pattern detailing on the exterior.
The latest special version boasts the award-winning ProPILOT, new Intelligent Rear View Mirror, and e-Pedal technologies, offering an engaging electrified driving experience.
“Since LEAF launched in 2010, Nissan has continued to evolve its EV technology, connected services and design to ensure it delivers on the demands and lifestyles of owners,” says Helen Perry, Chief Marketing Manager of Electric Passenger Cars & Infrastructure at Nissan Europe.
“Our iconic model has attracted over 180,000 motorists across Europe. We hope that with its enhanced styling features and latest technologies such as In-Car Wi-Fi and its remote functions including lock and unlock capabilities to receive packages; LEAF can continue to excite those who are just starting their EV journey. ”
Customers can choose from two body colours – standard Pearl Black Metallic, or the brand new two-tone Ceramic Grey and Pearl Black cost option and it features 17-inch alloys as standard on all N-Connecta models.
LEAF10 is available with Nissan’s versatile In-Car Wi-Fi hotspot providing in-built 4G connectivity for up to seven devices.
This functionality compliments the range of utilities on the NissanConnect Services smartphone app, which allows owners to control key features remotely – such as monitoring the battery charge level and locking or unlocking their vehicle to accept deliveries.
Drivers will also be able to enjoy a comfortable commute, with the ability to pre-heat the interior for their journey.
Customers will also benefit from Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention (IBSI), , and Nissan’s newly launched Intelligent Rear View Mirror, usually a £395 cost option, to provide greater visibility and reassurance whilst driving. These innovative safety features perfectly complement the already technically advanced EV.
The Nissan LEAF10 starts from £28,820 OTR (including the Plug in Car Grant).
