To cement the model’s position as one of the most accessible, and readily available, electric vehicles on the market, Nissan has reduced the ‘On The Road’ price of its LEAF 40kWh range by £1,650 on all grades - Dave 😏

Hmm... Cynical marketing ploy?

https://www.am-online.com/news/manufacturer/2019/12/18/nissan-leaf-supply-increases-as-price-drops-by-1-650

Nissan has reduced the price of the Leaf by £1,650 across all grades and secured additional supply for 2020.

The announcement follows a previous price hike of £1,800 earlier in the year.

https://uk.motor1.com/news/388615/nissan-leaf-price-drop/ (my bold):

As well as the price drop, Nissan has added to the Leaf's standard equipment, with two rear USB connections being added to all versions, while standard on Tekna (and optional on N-Connecta versions), the LED fog lights have also been upgraded to include a cornering function. This feature illuminates the fog lights during tight cornering to give greater visibility to the road ahead


Wow! Makes it so much more attractive!

OK so it's the old model (must have been one of the last) - but this Leaf demonstrates a critical problem with electric cars - residuals!

This is barely two years old (it's a "67" plate note) but probably cost around £25k new (after grant). It's done 15k miles and lost £15k value - so the running cost has been £1/mile excluding fuel and servicing.

You really need to be wanting to save the planet at your own expense rather than buy a brand new Suzuki Swift currently on offer at £10,867
