To increase the appeal of the current Leaf on the UK market, Nissan is offering its clients a special edition of the electric car, called Black Edition.

Based on Nissan’s existing Acenta grade, the Nissan Leaf Black Edition offers 16 inch black alloy wheels, LED headlamps, illuminated entry guards, privacy glass, black door mirror caps and black rear roof spoiler. Blue-stitched mats give the interior a premium finish.

The Black Edition also comes with the latest evolution of the advanced NissanConnect EV telematics system and its Around View Monitor technology as standard.

The limited edition model is on sale in Europe for a restricted production run from March 2017 up until August 2017, with the first 1,000 customers in Europe receiving a free Wi-Fi hotspot, capable of powering up to eight devices.

Launched in 2010, the Nissan Leaf was the first mass-market electric vehicle. The latest 30kWh version gives drivers up to 155 miles of motoring range.
