Nissan considering LEAF facelift (UK)

Nissan might give the LEAF EV a minor facelift or some simple upgrades when it goes into production in the UK in 2013.

The upgrades will allow Nissan to rework the LEAF following customer feedback. Alterations would include the body and interior being retooled for European build. The motor and control systems will come from Japan.

The order books on the LEAF opened on 1st September in the UK, when first deposits of £257 were received through Nissan’s website. Those who place a deposit are to test drive the LEAF before December 2010, before officially confirming their order. UK deliveries will begin in March 2011.

Nissan claimed in June, that it had received 19,000 pre-orders for the car, a figure almost double the 10,000 that will be made in its first year of production.

The LEAF has a price-tag of £23,350 (including a £5,000 government incentive) in the UK.
