Special edition Nissan Leaf10 gets revised styling, more standard equipment and upgraded technology
- Unique ‘Leaf10’ styling and two special paint colours
- Upgraded connectivity
- On sale now starting at £28,820 after PiCG
The Nissan Leaf10 special edition has been revealed. The new model celebrates the 10th anniversary since the original Leaf was launched in 2010, and has unique exterior styling plus an upgraded equipment list featuring more tech.
Pricing for the Leaf10 starts from £28,820 after the Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG), which is around £700 more than the N-Connecta trim on which it's based. Electric rivals include the Hyundai Kona Electric, Volkswagen ID.3 and Mazda MX-30.
To set it apart from the standard car, the Leaf10 features styling inspired by the forthcoming Ariya EV with a unique ‘Kumiko’ pattern on the wing mirrors, roofline and boot lid, special ‘Leaf10’ badges on the C-pillar and 17-inch alloy wheels. Buyers can pick from a standard Pearl Black Metallic paint finish, or a new Ceramic Grey and Pearl black two-tone finish as an additional cost option.
Standard equipment is bolstered with the addition of Nissan’s ProPilot driving assistance suite and an in-car wi-fi hotspot, which boasts 4G connectivity for up to seven devices. It can also be used with the NissanConnect smartphone app, which allows drivers to check the battery charge level remotely and preheat the car before a journey in colder weather.
Safety features include Nissan’s Blind Spot Intervention (IBSI) system and Intelligent Rear View Mirror, which features a small LCD screen capable of displaying a live feed from a rear-mounted camera.
The Leaf10 is only available with the smaller 40kWh battery, which is capable of 168 miles on a charge. When connected to a 50kW fast-charger, topping up the battery to 80% capacity takes around 40 minutes, with a 6.6kW home wallbox taking around 7.5 hours to achieve a full charge. It’s powered by an electric motor producing 148bhp, and manages 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 90mph.
