The 8.0-inch touchscreen is complemented by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, satellite navigation with TomTom LIVE premium traffic and route optimization, and Chargers Location functionality. The Services app connects your smartphone to the car, enabling features such as door-to-door navigation and remote climate control.

A total of 10 exterior colors are available, along with seven two-tone combinations for the body and roof. ProPilot semi-autonomous driving also comes standard, designed for single-lane highways. Engage the system, and the Leaf e+ will automatically stop, restart, and stay centered in its lane in scenarios such as low-speed congested traffic and high-speed cruising.

“The Leaf is a fantastic car to drive, delivering instant power, rapid acceleration, and refinement thanks to its 100% electric drive train,” said Kalyana Sivagnanam. “With the additional battery capacity, the Leaf e+ will enable our customers to go further than ever before with more confidence, excitement, and connectivity,” concluded the managing director of Nissan Motor GB Ltd.

More than 400,000 units have been sold since 2010 worldwide, proving that the Leaf is more than a trailblazing electric vehicle. As expected, the Leaf e+ features an internal thermal management system that guarantees the longevity of the lithium-ion battery.

Francisco Carranza, the managing director of Renault-Nissan Energy Services claims the battery outlasts the vehicle by up to 12 years, going to show how much the automaker invests in the research and development of battery technology. As for warranty, the coverage for defects in materials or workmanship is eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

To put the Leaf e+ Tekna into greater perspective, Tesla priced the Model 3 Standard Range Plus with rear-wheel drive at £38,900 before savings. This specification of the Model 3 is good for 258 miles, 140 miles per hour, and 5.3 seconds to 60 mph.
