Nissan Leaf prices cut by £2500
The price cut is immediate, and means the all-electric Leaf is now available from £23,490, once the Government's £5000 low-carbon grant is taken into account. This means the pre-grant list price has dropped from £30,990 to £28,490.
Nissan has also cut the cost of its personal contract purchase (PCP) scheme to £239 a month, based on a deposit of £3500 and a 6.9% interest rate. Previously the PCP payments were £299 a month after a £5000 deposit.
The Leaf comes with plenty of equipment, including rear-view parking camera, rapid charge capability, Intelligent Key, LED headlamps, sat-nav and Bluetooth.
Leaf production will start at the company's Sunderland factory in the spring, but this new price applies to imported cars. The UK-built car is expected to come with a lower entry-level trim, which will reduce the price further.
