The new range-leading MY19 Nissan LEAF e+ represents the pinnacle of the LEAF range, delivering a superlative ownership experience and featuring advanced Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology to deliver top performance and a maximum of 239 miles of zero-emissions driving.
Prices for the new Nissan LEAF e+ Tekna start from £35,895, including the £3,500 Government Grant.
The key component of the Nissan electric range is the high-performance lithium-ion batteries. Thanks to being lightweight, compact, and coupled with high capacity energy storage and excellent reliability, Nissan’s battery technology is at the forefront of exceeding customer needs and expectations.
Featured in the Nissan LEAF e+, the newly-developed 62kWh battery pack offers a huge 55% more capacity and approximately 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. Other than a 5-millimetre increase in the car’s overall height (based on 16-inch wheels), the car’s dimensions are unchanged.
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 a powerful acceleration performance.
With the more powerful motor, acceleration from 50mph to 75mph is nearly 13% quicker. The top speed (98 mph) has also increased from the 40kWh version by approximately 10%.
As the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, LEAF exemplifies Nissan’s Intelligent Integration philosophy with an impressive array of connectivity services. All new LEAF versions come as standard with Nissan’s new NissanConnect infotainment system, with larger 8” touchscreen.
Features include Apple CarPlay® and AndroidAuto® allowing for seamless smartphone connectivity. You’ll also benefit from an upgraded navigation system, which features TomTom LIVE premium traffic and route optimisation, as well as the inbuilt Online Map Update facility and Chargers Location functionality.
With all new LEAF versions you’ll also get an all-new NissanConnect Services app. With the app, users can send navigation routes from their smartphone to their car and from their car to their smartphones through the Door-to-Door Navigation facility, enabling an easier transition from navigation, to parking, and to final destination.
The Remote Climate Control functionality gives users the ability to pre-set air conditioning or heating while their LEAF is still plugged to the charging point, whilst information and analysis on trips and driving style can also be accessed from a smartphone.
The new LEAF also offers a number of different design options, with a total of 10 body colours and seven two-tone body and roof colour combinations allowing owners to give their LEAF’s a personal touch.
Fine-tuned since the launch of the original LEAF in 2011, an internal thermal management system is also installed in every LEAF, ensuring that fast charging performance is optimised for specific driving conditions. The system also ensures that the quality and lifespan of the battery is maximised, giving customers peace of mind and high levels of performance.
The LEAF e+ is also equipped with ProPILOT advanced driving assistance technology as standard. ProPILOT is an advanced driving assistance technology which works on single-lane highways. A ‘hands-on, eyes-on’ system, it allows the car to stop, restart and stay centred in its lane in higher-speed cruising and lower-speed congested traffic scenarios. The technology ensures a less stressful drive and a boost in driver confidence.
