The Japanese automaker has unveiled an updated version of its electric Nissan Leaf, which also gets a new rendition of the Nissan Leaf Urban Chrome.

Nissan Motor has partially improved the performance of the Nissan Leaf electric vehicle and introduced a special version of the Nissan Leaf “Urban Chrome” across the country. The automaker assures that the car has already gone on sale.

The Nissan LEAF, which turned 10 years old last December, is a pioneer of electric vehicles. Throughout its history, the car was chosen by 540 thousand buyers around the world, of which 140 thousand were sold in Japan. Not only is it zero emissions, it is highly regarded by many customers for its smooth and powerful acceleration, unique to electric vehicles, light handling that uses its low center of gravity, and various driver assistance technologies that ensure safety.

In addition, the Leaf is a new product that goes beyond ordinary mobility, for example, it can transfer the electricity stored in the battery of a large electric vehicle to the household power grid, and also be used as a battery in the event of a natural disaster.

In the updated version, the Leaf has received several new body colors – “Burgundy / Super-black” and “Copper / Super-black”. In addition, the V-notch on the front grille has been changed to black.

The novelty has received a fully automatic air conditioner equipped with Plasmacluster technology and high-efficiency filters. In addition, this time the model will be presented in the Urban Chrome modification – a car made in a slightly different style using special equipment. In this version, the car boasts a black radiator grille, electric exterior mirrors, also in black, 17-inch aluminum wheels in a dark shade and many other external differences from the standard version. In addition, the interior has been finished with attention to detail, such as the air conditioner outlet adorned with silver piping.

Autech Japan, a subsidiary of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., has partly improved the performance of the Nissan Leaf with the Autech version. It was announced that such a performance will go on sale this summer.

AUTECH is a brand that inherits the traditional craftsmanship of Autech Japan, amassed through the creation of a wide range of custom vehicles, and is distinguished by sporty yet luxurious style. It is a premium sporty concept for customers looking for details such as materials.

The cost of the basic version of the model with a 40 kWh battery starts at 3.33 million yen. A “charged” version of the Nismo with the same battery will cost 4.3 million yen, while the top version with a 62 kW battery will have to shell out almost 5 million yen.
