Nissan fixed the UK prices for the Nissan Leaf e+ with the range-increasing 62 kWh battery: the starting price is 35,895 pounds (€40,379), including the state subsidy of 3,500 pounds.
While Nissan already noted about 8,000 pre-orders for the electric vehicle since the introduction in January, the price for the UK was only now announced. For the European mainland, prices had been published a little over a week ago, but the right-hand drive edition has now also received the final pricing.
As we have previously reported on the Leaf e+, only a summary of the vehicle’s technical specifications: With a 62 kWh battery, provided by AESC, and a 160 kW electric motor the Leaf e+ manages a torque of 340 Nm. The top speed was increased by 10 per cent compared to the basic version, and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is done in 6.9 seconds, before maxing out the top speed at 158 km/h. The range is up to 385 km (239 miles) according to WLTP.
Charging can be done using 6.6 kW, 32A wall box in 11.3 hours. From 20 to 80 per cent, Nissan’s best-selling electric car now needs about one and a half hours, using the 50 kW rapid charger and is also enabled for CHAdeMO with 70 kW standard charge and a 100kW peak. Charging from 20% to 80% takes about an hour and a half, using a 50 kW charger.
