The Japanese automaker has decided to unleash a cool black Leaf across Europe, but interested buyers need to hurry up because the green vehicle’s special edition will only be assembled between March and August 2017.
Nissan has presented the stylish Black Edition Leaf for European buyers, with the first 1, 000 orders also getting an in-car WiFi hotspot as a free upgrade. Because we’re dealing with a Black Edition, the limited series Leaf is featuring a set of 16-inch wheels, as well as black trim for the mirror caps and roof spoiler, as well as tinted windows. Standard equipment also includes LED headlights and inside the cabin the occupants have illuminated doorsills and blue-stitched floor mats. NissanConnect telematics and the Around View Monitor 360-degree camera system are also on the list of features.
Nissan will sell it alongside the recent upgrade that has taken the original 24 kWh battery to 30 kWh now, with an EPA-estimated range of 107 miles on a single charge. That’s a far cry from the next generation though which is rumored to have a 60 kWh battery with a range of up to 250 miles. The new Leaf rumored specs suggests it will collide head on with the Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla Model 3 in the field of long-range electric cars after it debuts sometimes next year at an auto show.
