Nissan Leaf 3.Zero and Leaf 3.Zero e+ Limited Revealed
In the interests of fair and balanced coverage, we today feature a post about Nissan. This represents privileged access for we frequently are anti-Nissan. Not the cars, but… the lawyers have just informed me not to say anything else. Today we hold aloft a white flag, not of surrender or even peace. We do so out of pragmatism… and because it is a slow news day.
Nissan is launching two versions of the LEAF 3.ZERO, and the LEAF 3.ZERO e+ Limited Edition.
The LEAF 3.ZERO is priced from £31,095 including the £3,500 UK Government Plug-in Car Grant – features the 40 kWh battery.
New body colours and two-tone colour combinations will complete the choices.
The Nissan LEAF 3.ZERO e+ Limited Edition, priced from £36,795 including Government Grant, is also available to order from January 9.
The LEAF 3.Zero is limited to 5,000 units and features a higher output capable of delivering 160 kW (217 PS) of power; 340Nm of torque.
The range has also been extended to a claimed 239 miles from a single charge of the 62 kWh capacity battery. A 40% range increase over the LEAF 3.ZERO.
A new 8-inch infotainment screen enabling additional connectivity services such as door-to-door navigation.
An all-new and improved NissanConnect EV app will also be available when the LEAF 3.ZERO goes on sale in Europe.
Both 3.ZERO launch versions are flagship models for the 2019 Nissan LEAF, sitting at the top of their respective ranges.
With the more powerful motor, acceleration from 50mph to 75mph is nearly 13% quicker. The top speed (97mph) has also increased from the 40kWh version by approximately 10%.
The LEAF 3.ZERO models will feature both e-Pedal and semi-autonomous drive technology, ProPILOT.
First deliveries of the LEAF 3.ZERO are expected to start from May 2019, while initial customer deliveries of the LEAF 3.ZERO e+ Limited Edition will commence from summer 2019.
