Nissan has confirmed prices for the new version of its Leaf.
Deliveries of the new version of the world's best-selling electric vehicle will begin in February, and Nissan says prices for the entry-level Visia trim start at £21,990, including the £4,500 grant offered by the UK Government to low-emission vehicles, and rise to £33,655, also including the government grant, for the range-topping Tekna trim.
Prices for the full range, also including the government grant, also include the Acenta, from £24,290, the N-Connecta, from £25,990, and the special edition Zero, from £26,490.
The new Leaf offers a range of 235 miles - a 50% increase over the outgoing model - while power is up 38% to 148hp.
It is the first Nissan model in Europe to be fitted with the firm's ProPILOT advanced driving assistance system, which controls the distance to the vehicle in front and steers the vehicle to help the driver stay in the centre of a lane.
The new Leaf is also the first Nissan in Europe with the e-Pedal system, which starts, accelerates, decelerates and stops, all by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator.
Carl Bayliss, EV category manager for Nissan, said; 'With the new Nissan Leaf, all-electric motoring has never been more viable or affordable for almost any motorist.
"EV running costs are around 85% less than petrol or diesel cars and maintenance is almost 75% cheaper.
"There's £0 VED, free London Congestion Charge and even free parking in some cities, not to mention convenient home charging. It's not surprising unprecedented numbers of drivers are making the switch and going electric."
