Nissan is making zero-emission mobility more affordable by reducing the price of the all-electric Nissan Leaf by €3,000 in European markets. The change comes as part of a global effort to make the Leaf more affordable in the pioneering electric vehicle’s three main markets of Japan, Europe and the United States.
The new price is effective immediately, ahead of the mid-year arrival of an updated version of the Leaf.
This is on top of incentives offered by governments and regional authorities and means a customer could pay as little as €25,990 in France or £23,490 in the U.K. for a brand new example.
Leaf is powered by an in-house developed compact electric motor in the front of the car driving the front wheels. The AC motor develops 80 kW of power and 280 Nm of torque, enough for a maximum speed of more than 145 km/h (90 mph) and has a range of 175kms (108 miles).
Production of the updated model is due to start at Nissan European plant in Sunderland, UK, in Spring 2013.
