Nissan Leaf, the world’s first mass-produced all-electric family car is set to be launched in Europe, as the company announces official pricing of the car for UK, Netherlands, Republic of Ireland and Portugal. This zero-emission five-passenger hatchback will go on sale from July starting form £25,641 or nearly €30,000, and for that you get air conditioning, satellite navigation, a parking camera, a quick charge socket and innovative smart-phone connectivity as standard.
Of course since different governments have different policies regarding electric cars, the pricing for the Leaf will vary in different markets. In UK for instance, where the car hits the roads next February the delivery price will be as high as 28,350 Pound, but then it’s qualified for the 25 percent refund up to 5 grand that the government has promised for all-electric cars (well, the old government promised!).
Like so the Nissan Leaf will cost 32,839 Euros (28,068 Pounds) in Netherlands, 29,995 Euros (25,637 Pounds) in the Republic of Ireland and 29,955 Euros (25,603 Pounds) in Portugal.
“Nissan leads the industry by being the first automaker to offer an affordable zero-emission car. It’s a pure electric vehicle, with no tailpipe emissions and very low running costs. Nissan LEAF may look similar to a compact family car, but its smoothness, acceleration and handling will surprise and impress drivers and passengers alike,” said Simon Thomas, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Nissan International SA.
