Nissan celebrates 10 years of Leaf with special-edition model

Nissan has introduced a special version of the Leaf to celebrate 10 years of the electric vehicle being on sale.

Called the Leaf10 and available in UK dealerships this month, the special-edition model brings a new exterior colour as well as a variety of distinctive exterior detailing. Prices start from £28,820 inclusive of the government’s plug-in car grant.

A special ‘Kumiko’ pattern has been applied to the wing mirrors, roofline and boot lid, while a new name badge has been fitted to the car’s C-pillar. Buyers are able to opt between two exterior colours, with the first being standard black metallic and the second as new two-tone ceramic grey and pearl black shade. As standard, the Leaf10 rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the Leaf10 comes fitted with Nissan’s in-car Wi-Fi hotspot which brings built-in 4G connectivity for up to seven devices. It sits alongside a range of connected services available through the NissanConnect app, which allows owners to monitor many of the car’s functions such as battery charge level. They can even lock and unlock their vehicle via the application, too.

The car also incorporates standard-fit Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention and Nissan’s Intelligent Rear View Mirror – usually a £395 option – for added visibility when on the move.
