Nissan has unveiled the special version LEAF Black Edition, which will be available in Britain in March 2017. The model was launched at a special media event in Italy. Perrys Motoring Journalist, Tim Barnes-Clay, was there.
Based on Nissan’s existing Acenta grade, the Nissan LEAF Black Edition offers a number of dynamic styling enhancements. Stylish exterior additions include 16” black alloy wheels, LED headlamps, illuminated entry guards, privacy glass, black door mirror caps and black rear roof spoiler. Blue-stitched mats give the interior a premium finish.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles at Nissan Europe, said: “The Nissan LEAF Black Edition offers our customers stylish, premium design in an affordable mass-market 100 percent electric vehicle. We are committed to delivering innovation that excites and this vehicle does just that, with our leading Around View Monitor technology offering customers a more confident drive – embodying Nissan Intelligent Mobility.”
The limited edition model is on sale in Europe for a restricted production run from March until August next year, with the first 1,000 customers in Europe receiving a free Wi-Fi hotspot – capable of powering up to eight devices.
Launched in 2010, the Nissan LEAF was the first mass-market electric vehicle. The latest 30kWh version gives drivers up to 155 miles of motoring range, opening up a new world of opportunity for drivers. Nissan is dedicated to delivering a smarter, more sustainable future, with customers having driven more than 2.5 billion electric miles.
