Nissan Leaf gets new styling tweaks for 2022
Nissan’s electric hatchback gets modest visual enhancements amongst growing EV demand
- Revised Nissan badging
- New alloy wheel designs and paint colours
- On sale 1 March from £26,995
The Nissan Leaf has received a mid-life update for 2022. The revision is purely cosmetic and introduces two new paint colours, fresh alloy wheel designs and the introduction of Nissan’s new minimalist logo design for the badging.
The updated Leaf will go on sale on Tuesday 1 March, and prices are due to start from £26,995 after the Government plug-in car grant has been applied.
Now mid-way through its second generation, the Leaf has accumulated an increasing number of strong rivals such as the Volkswagen ID.3 and Citroen e-C4, as well as SUVs like the Vauxhall Mokka-e and Kia e-Niro. In entry-level guise, it’s cheaper than many similarly sized competitors.
To give customers more flexibility for personalisation, the 2022 Nissan Leaf will feature two new paint choices: Pearl Blue and Magnetic Blue. First seen as the launch colour of the all-new Nissan Qashqai, Magnetic Blue is a vibrant shade. Alternatively, Pearl Blue is much deeper and darker in colour, and will also be available on the upcoming Nissan Ariya SUV.
Alongside the expanded paint options, Nissan has provided the Leaf with two new alloy wheel designs. Measuring 16 and 17 inches in diameter respectively, both wheels adopt a gloss-black aerodynamic design with chrome accents. However, at this stage it is unclear whether they will be available on all trim levels.
