New 2021 Nissan Leaf: prices, specs and pictures

Nissan has added new safety kit and a new low-speed safety sound to the 2021 model-year Leaf electric car

Nissan Leaf 2021

The 2021 model year of the Nissan Leaf has gone on sale, with a new pedestrian-safety sound called 'Canto' and additional active safety kit among the main additions to the range.

Nissan previously announced a series of revisions for the 2021 Leaf late in 2020. There are still two battery capacities to choose from – standard 40kWh or 'e+' 62kWh – each available in a number of trim levels. The range starts at £25,995 for the Leaf Acenta and tops out at £32,445 for the Leaf e+ Tekna. Claimed range for the 40kWh model is 168 miles, with the 62kWh battery increasing that to 239 miles.

N-Connecta trim has been introduced for the 62kWh e+ model, offering a new and cheaper entry point for the larger-batteried Leaf, with prices from £30,445 after the government grant. The standard Leaf is available in Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna trims, while the Leaf e+ comes in N-Connecta and Tekna versions.

Technological upgrades include Nissan's Intelligent Rearview Mirror, which places an LCD screen in the interior mirror displaying a clear, low-glare view behind the car – useful for parking and if the rear seats are occupied. This comes as standard on Tekna models, or can be added to N-Connecta cars for £395.

Blind Spot Intervention has been added to the Leaf's roster of active safety systems, while the brand's ProPILOT suite of driver assistance features is now £145 cheaper as an option on N-Connecta models, at £450. ProPilot is standard on Tekna cars, but isn't available on entry-level Acenta trim. 

Standard equipment across the range now also includes a shark-fin aerial and telescopic steering-wheel adjustment. A new Ceramic Grey colour option joins the colour palette, although a selection of previous colours have been discontinued.

How much does it cost to charge an electric car?

It should cost less to run an electric car than a combustion one, but exactly how much does it cost to charge one up?
