The Nissan Leaf is already a decade old. And to celebrate, Nissan has introduced the new Leaf10, a special edition version of the world’s best-selling EV.
“Since Leaf launched in 2010, Nissan has continued to evolve its EV technology, connected services, and design to ensure it delivers on the demands and lifestyles of our owners,” said Helen Perry, Nissan Europe chief marketing manager of Electric Passenger Cars and Infrastructure.
The Leaf10 features an intricate Kumiko pattern embedded on the side mirrors, the roofline, and the trunk. The look is derived from the Nissan Ariya’s design and looks similar to the classy trim fitted on the Juke Enigma. The car also sports a special Leaf10 badge on its C-pillar.
Inside, Nissan has equipped the Leaf10 with some nifty upgrades. It comes with Nissan’s In-Car Wi-Fi hotspot that allows up to seven devices to connect to the Internet via the built-in 4G connectivity.
This works hand-in-hand with the features available through the NissanConnect Services smartphone app that allows Leaf users to control operations such as locking or unlocking the doors as well as monitoring the current battery charge level. No changes were made to the electric powertrain, so that’s about it for the changes here.
“Our iconic model has attracted over 180,000 motorists across Europe. We hope that with its enhanced styling features and latest technologies such as In-Car Wi-Fi and its remote functions including lock and unlock capabilities to receive packages; Leaf can continue to excite those who are just starting their EV journey,” Perry added.
The new Leaf10 will only be available in Europe—at least maybe, for now, that is. Do you like the subtle albeit sleek tweaks Nissan has made to its popular EV?
