Nissan LEAF range expands to four trim grades with new Acenta

Nissan LEAF range expands to four trim grades with new Acenta

Nissan is celebrating the success of its fully electric LEAF, with the introduction of a value-packed Acenta+ grade.

Now available in showrooms, the latest Acenta+ model adds new features that make the British-built Nissan LEAF an even more complete package.

The new Acenta+ sits between the Acenta and range-topping Tekna model and enjoys a significant specification boost over the standard model. It's equipped with a 6.6kW on-board charger as standard, along with a Mode-3 32amp (EVSE) cable.

Previously available only as an option, the 6.6kW charger allows owners to perform a 0-100 per cent charge in just four hours. Once charged, owners can enjoy the LEAF's impressive 124 miles (NEDC) range and incredibly low running costs from just 2p per mile.

Acenta+ models also look the part thanks to the addition of striking new 17-inch Autech wheels. Finished with distinctive blue accents on the offset spokes, they give the newest member of the LEAF family an even bolder appearance.

James Wright, managing director of Nissan Motor GB, said: "We're delighted to add a new member to the LEAF family in the UK. More than 9,500 LEAFs have already been sold here and Nissan is the undisputed leader in the EV market. This new model delivers exceptional value and showcases the LEAF's incredible technology and engineering."

The launch of the new Acenta+ grade comes as Nissan confirms its position as the global leader in the field of EV design, technology and production. In addition to enjoying a 60 per cent market share in the UK, more than 175,000 LEAFs have been sold globally since its introduction.

Meanwhile, the brand's second pure EV vehicle  the e-NV200  has introduced EV technology to the commercial vehicle sector, further extending Nissan's market lead.
