Nissan has launched a short run Black Edition variant of its Nissan Leaf, priced from £26,890 including the £4,500 government plug-in vehicle grant.
Based on the Acenta grade, the Black Edition adds new styling.
Exterior features include 16” black alloy wheels, LED headlamps, black door mirror caps and black rear roof spoiler. In addition, the Black Edition is completed with blue-stitched mats.
The Nissan Leaf Black Edition is equipped with the NissanConnect EV telematics system and Intelligent Around View Monitor.
The car's chassis has also been engineered specifically for UK drivers.
Gareth Dunsmore, director of electric vehicles at Nissan Europe, said: “The new Leaf Black Edition perfectly showcases Nissan’s commitment to making smart, premium quality products accessible for all. This stylish black number combines dynamic styling, with Nissan’s innovative zero-emission technology to offer customers a city-savvy intelligent mobility solution. Its sleek design compliments an exciting drive, delivered through high-class engineering, demonstrating that you don’t have to compromise on style or performance when purchasing an electric car.”
The limited edition model is on sale in the UK from March for a restricted production run up until August 2017, with the first 200 customers receiving a free Wi-Fi hotspot – capable of pairing with up to eight devices.
