Nissan has confirmed the all-electric LEAF range will benefit from a new N-TEC limited edition, joining the cross car line N-TEC versions of Micra, Qashqai and X-Trail, which were launched in January.
Priced at £32,795 OTR (including the £3,500 Government Grant) the LEAF e+ N-TEC creates a new accessible price point (says Nissan, many people will think 32K is completely unaffordable – Ed) for the higher 62kWh capacity battery drivetrain. Launched in summer 2019, the e+ version of LEAF delivers 217PS of power, 340Nm of torque and up to 239 miles of range (WLTP combined) on a single charge.
The LEAF e+ was previously available as a range-topping Tekna version. The new N-TEC edition, limited to just 1,000 examples, is based on the N-Connecta grade of the 40kWh line-up, but with added technology and styling, complementing the higher capacity 62kWh battery.
The N-TEC specification adds:
- LED Pack and LED fog lights with cornering function (usually £495 option)
- ProPILOT with Lane Keep Assist & Traffic Jam Pilot (usually £595 option)
- Electronic Parking Brake
- Metallic Blue Front Splitter
- Revised e+ suspension set-up
The LEAF e+ N-TEC is available with the following finance campaign, now available until 31st March 2020 as part of Nissan’s Red Tag Event:
- 99% APR PCP with nil customer deposit
- £500 Nissan Deposit Contribution
- Free OVO V2G Home Charger (T&Cs apply)
With the Nissan LEAF e+, the newly-developed 62kWh battery pack offers 55% more capacity and 25% improvement in energy density while retaining a similar shape and size to the 40kWh LEAF battery pack; all without compromising the vehicle’s exterior design and interior space.
This has given the LEAF e+ a significantly increased driving range of up to 239 miles (WLTP combined mode) on a single battery charge. Maximum power output and torque have been also improved to an impressive 217PS and 340 Nm, respectively, delivering more powerful acceleration (0-62mph time of 6.9 seconds). The top speed of 98 mph has also increased from the 40kWh version by approximately 10%.
