Much more than just a 100% electric vehicle, the new Nissan LEAF is a mobile power unit, allowing customers to manage their energy use either through home or office solutions.

It is available in the following 10 exterior colours: Arctic Solid White, Solid Red, Bronze Metallic, Gun Metallic, Spring Cloud, Blade Silver, Magnetic Red, Pearl White, Metallic Black and two-tone with Pearl White body & Metallic Black Roof.

The new Nissan LEAF has a completely redesigned interior, which is focused on the driver and combines a clever use of space with optimum functionality.
