Nissan has announced new model year range updates for its Leaf electric car.
All models in the Leaf range, including versions with both 40kWh and 62kWh battery packs, gain telescopic steering wheel adjustment and blindspot intervention, while an intelligent rear-view mirror - featuring a high-res camera image - has been made standard with the Tekna equipment grade, and a shark fin antenna made standard from the N-Connecta grade up.
Also, a cheaper entry point has been created for the 62kWh Leaf with the addition to the range of the e+ N-Connecta spec, priced from £32,695 including the UK Government's £3,000 plug-in car grant.
Nissan has also cut the price of the range-topping e+ Tekna 62kWh by £1,685, to £34,710.
Conversely, the price of the 40kWh Tekna has gone up by £315, which Nissan says is due to the addition of the intelligent rear-view mirror.
Price cuts have also been announced for the Pro Pilot driver assistance system, now £145 cheaper as an option with the N-Connecta grade at £450, and Pro Pilot Parking Assist, now £295 cheaper at £795 with the Tekna grade.
A new Ceramic Grey exterior paint colour has also been introduced, either on its own or in a two-tone design with Pearl Black Metallic, while the Arctic White, Spring Cloud Green, and two-tone Spring Cloud/Pearl Black options have been discontinued.
Production of the updated Leaf will start on 16 November.
