The new Nissan Leaf has officially gone on sale in the UK.
Prices for the latest version of the world's bestselling electric vehicle (EV) start from £21,990, including the £4,500 grant available from the UK Government for ultra-low emission vehicles.
Technology on the new Leaf, which is built at Nissan's plant in Sunderland, includes the 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, and the e-Pedal system, which allows the driver to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop the car, all by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator.
Carl Bayliss, Nissan GB's EV business development manager, said: "We are delighted that the new Nissan Leaf is now on sale across the UK.
"Much more than just an EV, the Leaf is a whole new driving experience, designed to move people with greater exhilaration, confidence and connection to the world around them.
"Nissan looks forward to EVs playing an increasingly important role in the sustainable development of our urban infrastructure - not just improving air quality, but also in the storage, management and distribution of renewable energy."
