Nissan Leaf Visia

We drive the new entry-level Nissan Leaf Visia, which cuts the electric car’s starting price to £15,990
Verdict

The changes to the way the Leaf handles are welcome, and this new budget price tag is great if you’re willing to pay between £70 and £115 a month to lease the battery pack. It’s a shame that you don’t get the efficient new heater, though, because it drastically improves real-world range. We’d recommend a higher-spec Leaf instead.

When Nissan updated the all-electric Leaf earlier this year, it also introduced this entry-level Visia model and the option of leasing the expensive battery pack for as little as £70 a month.

Together, the changes saw the starting price fall from £23,490 to £15,990 after the Government grant for electric cars – that’s less than an entry-level VW Golf.

The exterior changes are minor enough for you not to notice them, but the Visia does look a little cheaper than other Leafs. The mirrors aren’t body-coloured, you get 16-inch steel wheels and there are no tinted windows.

Inside, the electric handbrake is omitted, the gloss black panels are now a cheaper-looking plastic and there’s no reversing camera, auto wipers or sat-nav.
