Nissan is making zero-emission mobility more affordable by reducing the price of the all-electric Nissan LEAF by £2,500. The change comes as part of a global effort to make the LEAF more affordable in the pioneering electric vehicle’s three main markets of Japan, Europe and the United States. In addition to the reduction in the retail price, UK customers can also benefit from offers including low rate finance. The new price is effective immediately, ahead of the arrival of an updated version of the LEAF. This is on top of the incentive offered by the UK government and means a customer can drive away in a brand new LEAF for £23,490, or just £239 per month. Being fully electric, the LEAF also benefits from zero road tax and is currently exempt for company car ‘benefit-in-kind’ tax. Production of the updated model is due to start at Nissan European plant in Sunderland, UK, in Spring 2013.
