Special edition Nissan Leaf10 marks big selling EV’s 10th anniversary

The commemorative Nissan Leaf10 features a new paint finish and comes with some added inspiration from the new Ariya SUV

Nissan has launched a special edition version of the Leaf, to mark the EV’s tenth year on sale. It’s called the Nissan Leaf10 and it’s available to order now, with prices starting from £28,820 including the government’s £3,000 plug-in car grant.

It gets a new badge on the C-pillar marking it out as a special edition model, and a new two-tone Ceramic Grey and Pearl Black paint scheme, too. Nissan has also applied a vinyl wrap to the wing mirrors, roofline and tailgate, patterned in the same geometric design found on the Ariya’s front grille.

The new Nissan Leaf10 shares its basic specification with the N-Connecta model, so it comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass and front fog lamps. Inside, buyers get a heated steering steering wheel, heated seats, a seven-inch digital gauge cluster and an eight-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

There’s plenty of safety equipment too, including a rear-view camera and Nissan’s ProPilot driver assistance system, which adds intelligent cruise control, lane-keeping assist and a traffic jam pilot. Nissan has also thrown in its Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention system for free – it’s usually an optional extra, priced at £395.

The Leaf10 is only available with Nissan’s entry-level EV powertrain. It comprises a 148bhp electric motor and a 40kWh battery pack, which is enough for a maximum range of 168 miles and a 0–62mph time of 7.9 seconds. When plugged into a 50kW fast charger, the system battery will recover an 80 percent charge in around an hour.
