Nissan Leaf Euro-spec

The Japanese manufacturer will start producing the new version of the Nissan Leaf Euro-spec 2013, special adapted to the Old Continent customers, in Sunderland, UK. Production is set to start this spring and the Sunderland plant will generate an updated version of the Euro-spec LEAF.



Comparing the Leaf models from Japan and the United States the European unit will have according to the manufacturer more than 100 improvements. Among these is greater recyclability, more luggage space and overall packaging, an improved front design that increases aerodynamic coefficient and revamped heating system.



To please the European drivers Nissan Leaf Euro-spec 2013 revised the chassis, steering system and brakes. Also Nissan has 16-inch steel wheels with full covers, halogen headlights and black door mirror cap for the new entry-level Visia trim.



But, worth noting is that Euro-spec LEAF’s range jumped from the previous 109 miles (175.4 km) to 124 miles (199.5 km) in the updated version. A new fast charger option can cut charging times in half, from the regular eight hours to just two hours.


Although Nissan announces that Leaf will low the price, in UK it will charge the customers by 20,000 GBP including the government grant of 5,000 GBP.
