Nissan reduces price of LEAF to accommodate revised plug-in car grant
Nissan has confirmed price reductions of both 40kWh and 62kWh versions of its LEAF electric vehicle, effective from April.
As a result, all grades of LEAF and both battery capacities (40kWh and 62kWh) are eligible for the revised Plug-In Car Grant of £2,500, which is offered on electric vehicles under £35,000 RRP.
The reduced OTR price also makes the LEAF range the most accessible C-segment hatchback EV, starting from just £25,995 OTR (including government grant).
The changes to the plug-in car grant came into effect on 18th March 2021, with a reduction from £3,000 to £2,500 towards the purchase price of electric vehicles with a revised RRP limit of £35,000 (previously £50,000).
Updated pricing for the LEAF range, including the £2,500 government grant, is in the table below. For customers looking to purchase an e+ 62kWh version, the OTR price reduction renews the model’s eligibility for the grant, unlocking a saving of £5,265 compared to purchasing at the previous OTR price without the £2,500 PICG support.
