Nissan has reduced prices across the Nissan Leaf range to ensure all versions of its electric car are eligible for the government’s plug-in car grant.

The government revised the terms of the plug-in car grant on 18 March 2021. The price cap for eligibility was reduced from £50,000 to £35,000 and the grant itself was cut from £3,000 to £2,500. As a result, many cars became ineligible for the grant, leading to price reductions from a number of manufacturers. 

Electric carsWhat is an electric car?

The Nissan Leaf is the latest electric car to benefit from a price drop, one that applies to both the 40kWh and 62kWh models. Both variants are now eligible for the revised grant of £2,500 offered on electric vehicles under £35,000. 

The reduced prices make the Leaf the most accessible electric hatchback in its class, with the entry-level Acenta now starting from just £25,995 - a reduction of £1,350 - including government grant. The 40kWh model in other trims has seen a price reduction of almost £700, with the top-spec Tekna starting at £29,995.

The biggest reductions can be found on the 62kWh model, with some prices cut by more than £5,000. The entry-level N-Connecta now starts at £30,445, while the range-topping Tekna starts at £32,445.

To coincide with the new pricing structure, Nissan has also released a new 0% APR PCP finance offer on the 62kWh N-Connecta model. With a deposit of £4,718 and an annual limit of 10,000 miles, buyers will then make 37 monthly payments of £299.
