Nissans new Leaf

Nissan's new Leaf

Nissan in the UK is launching an online reservation system for its new Leaf as pre-orders pass 10,000 across Europe.

The digital ordering system ( lets customers place an order for a New Leaf – currently limited to 2.ZERO special versions – in 'just a few clicks and takes around two minutes to do', according to Nissan. A customer's preferred dealer will then contact them to finalise the order.

Nissan says its new Leaf delivers significant updates over the previous model with a higher capacity 40kWh battery. There's a claimed 50% increase in range to 235miles (NEDC) and a 38% increase in power to 150PS, compared with the previous 30kWh version.

Carl Bayliss, EV Category Manager, Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd., said: 'Since 2011, the Nissan Leaf has proved that all-electric driving can be both practical and affordable for thousands of UK motorists. Now the new 2018 Nissan LEAF is the world's most advanced mass-market electric vehicle and icon of Nissan's Intelligent Mobility vision.

"Now's the time for those ready to make the switch to enjoy all the benefits that an all-electric, zero emissions vehicle can bring. There's simply no reason to be stuck in a long line of deposits waiting for something to happen when the 'Simply Amazing' new Nissan LEAF begins first deliveries from February next year.'

Customers looking to be one of the first owners of the all-new Nissan LEAF, can now benefit from a 'competitive contract purchase on the exclusive 2.ZERO special version'. With a GBP5,138 customer deposit, combined with GBP1,000 dealer deposit contribution, monthly payments are just GBP339 on a 3 year/10,000 annual mileage PCP with 4.49% APR.

The new Leaf is also the first Nissan model in Europe to be equipped with Nissan's autonomous ProPILOT technology and e-Pedal, which allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop – simply by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator.
