2013 Nissan Leaf is now cheaper in the UK

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 24, 2013

Nissan’s all-electric Nissan LEAF is now cheaper by £2,500. This change is part of a worldwide effort for zero-emission mobility to become less expensive in Japan, Europe and the U.S. (the three key markets of the pioneering electric vehicle). UK customers will benefit from the reduced retail price and from offers like low rate finance.

The new price takes effect immediately, before the updated LEAF arrives. This is aside from the incentive that’s given by the government. As a result, a brand new LEAF costs only £23,490 (or just £239 each month).

Aside from the new price, LEAF customers will also be delighted with the super low running expenses, with a battery recharge that only costs a portion of the cost of a tank of fuel. Since the LEAF is fully electric, it’s eligible for zero road tax and is also exempted from the company car ‘benefit-in-kind’ tax.

Furthermore, a rising number of public charging points provide quick and convenient measures to charge the battery, such as a network of rapid chargers. As a result, it takes less than 30 minutes to give the LEAF an 80% charge.

The Nissan LEAF was given the World, European and Japan Car of the Year Awards during its launch in 2011. Throughout the world, around 50,000 Nissan LEAF electric vehicles have been sold.

The response to the LEAF shows that battery-powered cars are prepared to contribute much to a global reduction in vehicle emissions. The Nissan LEAF gets a highly impressive set of standard equipment.

Included in its standard satellite navigation system is Carwings, Nissan’s unique telematics system which permits an owner to manage the heating and air conditioning settings and to check on the charging process remotely with the use of a smart phone.
