A true pioneer in the all-electric market, the Nissan Leaf has received styling and tech upgrades for 2022.
With over 577,000 customers worldwide since its launch in 2011, the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle has received a refreshed exterior design with new 16- and 17-inch alloy wheel options. This brings an element of sportiness, with a slick black fascia further enhancing its premium feel.
The model also features Nissan’s new logo on the wheels, front grille and rear to bring it in line with Nissan’s brand identity.
Offered with two battery options that deliver up to 239 miles (WLTP) of range in the Leaf e+, the refresh utilises over 10 years of Nissan electric knowhow and innovation to combine an efficient electric driving experience with extensive driving assistance and connectivity technologies.
Offering a tried-and-tested suite of advanced driving assistance features such as ProPilot, which enables the electric car to automatically stop, start and maintain a safe distance to the vehicle in front. The innovative e-Pedal also provides the option to accelerate, decelerate and stop with only one pedal for maximum comfort and control on the move.
Infotainment technologies such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration are provided by the on-board NissanConnect system feature. Customers can also link their Leaf to their Amazon Alexa for added convenience.
“As the popularity of electric vehicles continues to grow, Nissan is pursuing an exhilarating chapter in its electric mobility story.
“Leaf has played a key role in shaping Nissan’s vision for empowering mobility and beyond, as we leverage our EV expertise to launch 23 new electrified models – including 15 full EVs – by fiscal year 2030,” said Arnaud Charpentier, Region Vice President, Product Strategy and Pricing, Nissan AMIEO region.
