The Nissan Leaf is updated with the arrival of the new Model Year. There are no novelties from an aesthetic point of view and in the electric motorization, but technology and connectivity are updated. It will arrive in Italian dealerships starting from next January, with a price list starting from 35,300 euros, but from 21,800 euros by adding the Nissan contribution and government incentives.
What’s new in this update
In addition to the availability of the brand new Gray body color, also in combination with the Black Metallic roof, the new Nissan Leaf updates the driver assistance systems. Now there is an intelligent blind-spot warning and intervention system as standard, with the brakes automatically activated to bring the vehicle back on track if a dangerous situation is detected.
The Tekna version also adds the intelligent rear-view mirror with color rearview camera, which guarantees the driver a sort of wide-spectrum view by means of the LCD display integrated into the rear-view mirror, thanks to an HD camera installed in the rear. Finally, there is the possibility of adjusting the height and depth of the steering column.
A car that is always connected
Connectivity is now at the forefront of the Nissan Leaf with the new In-Car Wi-Fi hotspot services, available in Italy from June. It allows four activation plans for full coverage while traveling, even on the highway, with high-speed navigation and downloads.
Another novelty is related to the management and monitoring functions, included in the NissanConnect Services smartphone app. In addition to the ability to remotely control battery charging and air conditioning, Leaf owners will be able to open and close doors remotely with mobile devices and set up “smart notifications” for the car.
Batteries and prices
The 2021 Nissan Leaf will always be available with a dual battery option (40 or 62 kWh) and with four trim levels (Acenta, Business, N-Connecta, and Tekna). The list prices, as we said, start at 35,300 euros, to reach 47,500 euros. But, being an electric model, government incentives are still available: so the starting price drops to 21,800 euros.
