2018 Nissan LeafDeliveries of the new second-generation Nissan Leaf begin in early 2018, and early adopters can sign up for one of the sharp-suited new EVs from £339 a month via a three-year PCP deal.

The 4.49 percent APR finance package demands a £5,138 deposit from the customer, but there’s a £1,000 dealer deposit contribution added to this. And if you already drive a Nissan Leaf electric car, things get even better – Nissan will add an extra £500 deposit contribution.

This cuts the monthly payment, over three years and 10,000 miles, to £324.

The launch car is a Leaf 2.Zero special edition, which is limited to 1,500 units, each costing £26,490 including the £4,500 government Plug-in Car Grant. Finished in Spring Cloud or Pearl Black, the new version sits in between N-Connecta and top-spec Tekna, and includes 17-inch alloys, climate control, cruise control and NissanConnect EV infotainment.

It also comes as standard with Nissan’s semi-autonomous ProPilot tech, plus suede-effect seats that are heated both in the front and the rear.

The goody haul is rounded out by a free 7kWh Home Charging unit, itself worth up to £859. Use it to fully-charge a new Leaf for a range of up to 235 miles.
