Order books are open and deliveries start early next year.

Nissan has revealed details of a PCP offer for the launch edition of its new second-generation Nissan Leaf. Customers who buy the 2.Zero Special Version, can place a £5,138 customer deposit, combined with £1,000 dealer deposit contribution, and pay £339 a month over three years (at 10,000 annual mileage) with 4.49 percent APR.

If you trade in a Nissan when buying the new Leaf, you're even eligible for an additional £500 deposit contribution which will reduce the monthly payment to £324.

If you purchase a Leaf 2.Zero through eligible sales channels, you can also apply for the new 7kWh Home Charging Unit (worth £859 or £359 with OLEV grant) at no cost. Customers with existing home charging units who purchase a new Leaf can also receive this upgrade at no cost.

The new Leaf 2.Zero special version will be limited to just 1,500 models, and is positioned between N-Connecta and the range-topping Tekna trim levels. It is available in two colours – Spring Cloud and Pearl Black, and the specification includes 17-inch alloy wheels, front and rear heated black suede-effect bio-fabric seats, automatic air conditioning, NissanConnect EV 7-inch touchscreen infotainment with six speaker sound system, Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection and Intelligent Driver alertness, as well as adaptive cruise control.

It is the first Nissan model in Europe to be equipped with Nissan’s autonomous ProPilot technology and e-Pedal tech, which lets the driver start, accelerate, decelerate and stop simply by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator – much like a dodgem. When the accelerator is fully released, the regenerative and friction braking systems deploy automatically, stopping the car and recharging the battery.

The original Leaf was the world's best-selling electric vehicle. The new one has been enhanced to be able to complete a bigger range (235 miles on the New European Driving Cycle test on a single charge). Plus, it's got an all-new dynamic design, advanced driver assistance technologies and enhanced connectivity.

The 2.Zero special version is priced at £26,490, which includes the government grant for electric vehicles. Deliveries will start at the beginning of 2018.
