Nissan is one of the pioneers of electric mobility. The Japanese manufacturer is now making it easier to enter the world of electric cars. Because on May 1st, Nissan lowered the gross list price of the compact five-seater and also introduced two new equipment variants. The prices for the Nissan LEAF thus start at 29,900 euros – and before deduction of any promotional premiums such as those from the federal government of currently up to 6,570 euros.


The entire LEAF line-up benefits from the adjustment. The 40 kWh version is now 3,600 euros cheaper, the prices of the e + model with a large 62 kWh battery have been reduced by 4,800 euros. A Visia option (only with 40 kWh battery) and an Acenta option have been added to the portfolio.

NEW: Nissan Leaf Visia

The new entry-level version from 29,900 euros already has the central features that make up the characteristic driving experience of an electric car. Of course, this includes a powerful drive with a maximum output of 110 kW / 150 PS and a torque of 320 Nm as well as the battery with 40 kWh capacity for a range of up to 270 km (combined according to WLTP) per charge.

The go-kart feeling in all versions is provided by the e-pedal included as standard. The leaf can be accelerated, braked and stopped with just one pedal. In addition, the LEAF Visia option is equipped with a type 2 charging connection (up to 3.6 kW) and with the fast CHAdeMO charging connection. An EVSE cable for connection to the household socket (up to 2.3 kW) is also on board at no extra charge.

Other numerous equipment details that make emission-free driving particularly comfortable include an air conditioning system including pollen filter, electric window regulators at the front and rear, electrically adjustable exterior mirrors, an audio system with Bluetooth® interface for mobile phones, and AUX and USB connections (1 x front , 2 x rear), an illuminated loading flap with locking and light or rain sensor.

An autonomous emergency braking assistant with pedestrian detection, a lane departure warning with corrective braking intervention, a high-beam assistant, a blind spot assistant, a cross traffic warning system, traffic sign recognition, as well as a speed control system and speed limiter.

New: Nissan Leaf e+ Acenta

The LEAF e + Acenta from 38,200 euros with a stronger drivetrain, even more all-round driving properties and 40 percent more range is really something. The 62 kWh battery has a 25 percent higher energy density and a 55 percent higher storage capacity. In conjunction with the 160 kW / 217 hp electric motor, the LEAF e+ can travel up to 385 kilometers on one charge in a combined cycle.


In addition to the features of the Visia option already mentioned, the LEAF e+ Acenta also has a leather steering wheel and an adaptive speed and distance assistant. 17-inch alloy wheels and blue accent strips on the front. Also on board: a type 2 connection (up to 6.6 kW), a mode 3 cable (type 2 / type 2 up to 7.4 kW) and a heat pump for even more energy-efficient air conditioning. This is also where NissanConnect EV with rear-view camera comes in. The multimedia system with 8-inch touchscreen offers digital radio (DAB), Bluetooth® audio streaming, hands-free system, voice control, iPod® gateway, six speakers as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®. The EV telematics system shows the way to the next charging station, helps with economical route planning, displays the range and provides energy information that the driver analyzes. The NissanConnect EV app controls air conditioning and charging, among other things.

The other variants (LEAF ZE1 MY19, N-Connecta, Tekna as well as e + N-Connecta and e + Tekna) do not differ in the equipment details from the previously available models.

Nissan LEAF e + with 62 kWh battery: combined power consumption (kWh / 100 km): 18.5; CO2 emissions: combined 0 g / km; Efficiency class A +
