Midland drivers who are considering making the switch to a pure-electric car now have even more reason to get behind the wheel of the award-winning Nissan LEAF at their local Nissan dealership.
Brand new versions of the all-electric, five-door hatchback have been announced and the order books are now open at Tullamore Nissan located in Burlington Business Park in Tullamore.
Due to arrive at the dealership next month, the new versions evolve the Nissan LEAF, making the ‘Simply Amazing’ EV even more appealing with the availability of more range, connectivity and power. In addition to the existing LEAF line-up, customers can now order the LEAF MY19 and the MY19 e+ Edition.
The LEAF MY19 features a new 8-inch infotainment screen enabling additional connectivity services, such as door-to-door navigation, new body colours and two-tone colour combinations, while the MY19 e+ Edition features a higher output capable of delivering 160 kW (217 PS ) of power; 340Nm of torque; and a longer driving range expected to be up to 385 kms from a single charge of the 62 kWh capacity battery.
The LEAF MY19 e+ Edition increases in power, which provides improved acceleration, and range, are an Intelligent Power-enhanced high-capacity battery and more powerful motor.
“Since we launched the new Nissan LEAF last year, it’s been immensely popular with our customers. With their improved specification, these new versions will make the LEAF even more sought after. As a result, we’re expecting to see even more local drivers make the switch to the pure-electric LEAF. As Nissan says, it really is ‘Simply Amazing’!
“For anyone who’s interested, we urge them to get in touch as soon as possible. With its increased range and power, the LEAF MY19 e+ Edition in particular is going to be in high demand and we wouldn’t want any of our customers to miss out on what will certainly be one of the most advanced and usable all-electric vehicles available," Andy Marsh, Tullamore Nissan, remarked.
Including the €5000 SEAI Grant and the €5000 Government VRT Grant, the LEAF MY19 is priced from €30,490, while the Nissan LEAF MY19 e+ Edition starts from €TBC. The LEAF MY19 and Nissan LEAF MY19 e+ Edition are now available to order
The epitome of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the Nissan LEAF was the most popular EV in Europe in 2018. Its advanced specification demonstrates Nissan’s vision for the future in terms of smarter, safer, easier and more exciting driving. For example, both LEAF MY19 models will feature the critically acclaimed e-Pedal and ProPILOT Intelligent Driving technologies.
The e-Pedal is a new driving sensation for many, allowing the driver to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop using only the accelerator pedal. This delivers a seamless, smooth drive and maximum control to the driver through enhanced pedal feedback.
ProPILOT is an advanced driving assistance technology which works on single-lane highways. A ‘hands-on, eyes-on’ system, it allows the car to stop, restart and stay centred in its lane in higher-speed cruising and lower-speed congested traffic scenarios. The technology reduces driving stress and fatigue, enhancing driver confidence behind the wheel.
