Autumn is a time where the leaves fall but Nissan has introduced a new Leaf model to its stable – the Black Edition. It sounds pretty hardcore but don’t forget this is a small electric hatchback so if you have visions of something C63 Black then you’ll be disappointed.
No, the name in fact refers to the styling of the new model which is finished in Black (naturally) with black 16″ alloy wheels, black wing mirrors and black rear spoiler. It’s based on the ACENTA trim, meaning buyers will be able to take advantage of Nissan’s Around View Mirror as well as safety features.
Other features include LED headlights, illuminated door sills, tinted windows and if you happen to be part of the first 1,000 customers, you’ll also get a free in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot. If you fancy it you’d better hurry as it will only be produced between March and August next year. Prices are yet to be announced however and the release date is yet to be announced as well.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles at Nissan Europe, said: “The Nissan LEAF Black Edition offers our customers stylish, premium design in an affordable mass-market 100 percent electric vehicle. We are committed to delivering innovation that excites and this vehicle does just that, with our leading Around View Monitor technology offering customers a more confident drive – embodying Nissan Intelligent Mobility.”
