Leasing a Nissan Leaf in the UK

Very few electric cars in production can match the Nissan Leaf for its history, significance and overall impact on the electrification of automotive around the world. Since 2010 Nissan’s first-generation BEV was made available to customers in Japan, Europe and the USA as part of a move away from combustion fuels.

What is truly incredible for the UK is that this was some 9 – 10 years before our seminal 2019 / 2020 moment, where EVs were accepted as a genuine and legitimate choice moving forwards. The Leaf has existed for so long, that it was revised again in 2017 before having further modernisation in March 2022. This makes the Leaf one of the oldest (and most revised) electric cars in production.

The Leaf has consistently been the staple choice for cheap hatchback EVs for our personal, business and public sector leasing customers at e-car lease. Until 2020, when the true dominance of Tesla began, this was the top selling EV in the world, with over 200,000 units sold in Europe towards the ends of 2021.

But what makes the Leaf so popular? It’s very much the ideal frugal electric car for families and businesses, with generous specification, attractive monthly prices and a long history of battery quality. In 2021, the Leaf was the UK’s 4th best-selling EV with just over 9,000 units registered. But moving forwards, expect tough competition from the VW Id.3, the Cupra Born and the Renault Megane e-tech.

For product clarity, the latest revision of the Leaf will maintain the current specification options offered throughout the brand with:

  •  Acenta – from £27,000 the base model offers an e-pedal, Nissan Safety Shield (with lane departure warning and intelligent emergency braking), 8” touchscreen, rear view camera, Apple CarPlay, 16” alloy wheels and climate control;  
  • N-Connecta – from £29,000 this adds intelligent around view monitor, front and rear parking sensors, part leather upholstery, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, 17” alloys and Nissan Connect; and 
  • Tekna – from £30,500 this adds ProPilot (traffic jam pilot and intelligent lane keep assis), Bose premium audio, part leather seats, LED headlights, 17” alloys in black and the electronic parking brake.

The 2WD N-Connecta and Tekna options are further available in an e+ format. But what does e+ mean? Effectively you benefit from a bigger battery for an additional cost – the N-Connecta increases to around £33,450 and the Tekna to circa £34,950. There are no additional options or extras at factory which you can select for this EV.

In terms of battery performance on a Leaf, please note the following two options below:

  • 39 kWh – the standard battery offers 110 kW (or 148hp) for 0 - 62 times of 7.9 seconds and 89mph top speeds. The combined range in colder weather should be around 120 miles with warmer external temperatures allowing for 170 miles. On charging speeds / times, the 6.6 kW AC max allows for 7 hours 0 – 100% times with the 46 kW DC max providing 43 minute 10 – 80% times; or 
  • 59 kWh – the bigger battery offers 160 kW (or 215hp) for 0 - 62 times of 6.9 seconds and 98mph top speeds. The combined range in colder weather should be around 175 miles with warmer external temperatures allowing for 240 miles. On charging speeds / times, the 6.6 kW AC max allows for 11 hour 0 – 100% times with the 100 kW DC max providing 37 minute 10 – 80% times.

The Leaf, which Nissan describe as “charge faster, go farther” and “sized for life” is aiming to re-ignite the brands fortunes, having been outworked by many of its competitors. Alongside the upcoming SUV Ariya, the Leaf is targeting to be a winner in the salary sacrifice segment of the UK’s fleet market. With the Leaf enjoying 2% BiK, employees are quick to select this value BEV on the sal sac scheme.

And because the employee is giving up a part of their gross salary (before income tax, National Insurance and Health and Social Care Levy), this non-cash benefit is cheaper. Because the benefit-in-kind is so nominal, you will be able to drive a brand-new car for MUCH cheaper than if you leased it personally using your net income.

Our upcoming e-car lease Salary Sacrifice Scheme sets out precise savings and offers which will help the employer and employee decide if a salary sacrifice is the best way to lease a new electric car.

Frequently asked questions
See our guides See our guides
How much is a Nissan Leaf Electric to lease?
The Leaf is one of the cheapest electric car options for our personal and company car customers. Expect to pay around £250 - £375 per month on the best leasing deals. The Leaf is comparatively priced to a Peugeot e-208 or Vauxhall Corsa-e but with added space for families and pets

Is a Nissan Leaf Electric a good car to lease?
The Leaf is one of the best-value family hatchbacks to lease in the UK and we anticipate many of those customers looking for cheap EV leasing to end up with the Nissan. What adds some great comfort to personal and business customers is that this manufacturer has an actual heritage in the world of electrification unlike most of the competition, having produced these cars for over 11 years. The Japanese manufacturer are anything other than the new kids on the block. The only negative to the Leaf is the slow AC charging – we are unsure as to why the brand did not increase this capability to 11 or 22 kW like the competition. This is rated by CarWow at 8/10, Autocar give it 4/5 and What Car? are at 3/5.

Is a Nissan Leaf Electric lease right for me or the business?
The suitability of the Leaf will not just be about the cheaper monthly rental, lower company car tax exposure or the functional family designs. As a pure electric car, this needs additional thoughts around your home or workplace charging solutions, seasonal range analysis and fleet demographics. Using our bespoke “Living with your …” tools our customers soon understand just how the Leaf will operate and what experience they can deliver. This means you should never procure a solution which isn’t suitable for your needs and requirements.

Where do I find the best Electric Nissan Leaf lease deals in the UK?
Many leasing customers head to on price comparison websites such as AutoLeaseCompare, CarWow, LeaseFetcher and LeaseLoco for the best EV leasing prices. Newer review resources like GreenCarGuide and Fully-Charged can also provide pricing info for you or the fleet manager. However, the majority of our best Leaf lease offers can be found on the e-car lease website. And if you want to find out if it is better to lease or buy the Leaf, head to your local Nissan dealership for a test-drive and comparable PCP or HP quotation.

What is the cheapest Nissan Leaf Electric leasing option?
At the time of writing, the cheapest option to select is the HATCHBACK 110kW Acenta 39kWh 5dr Auto. But as e-car sometimes bulk purchase specific cars, or our select finance companies do, sometimes a higher specification Leaf will be a cheaper monthly price.

What is the range of an Electric Nissan Leaf?
One of the best things about the e-car lease website is our “Living with your …” tools which clearly set out the range abilities of your Leaf. And why don’t we use just one figure? Because there are a number of factors which can influence range, we prefer to give a balanced view for you or the directors to review. Taking the standard battery, this hatchback should cover 105 miles on a highway and 145 miles in urban driving on a full charge in colder climates. In warmer climates, expect 135 miles on a highway and 220 miles in urban driving. In terms of the e+ this will deliver 150 miles on highways and 210 miles in urban conditions during colder temperatures, with the warmer temperatures allowing for 195 miles on highways and 315 miles of stop/start urban driving.

Can you tow with a Nissan Leaf?
No - you cannot add a tow hitch and / or tow attachment for this car.

What is the towing capacity of the Nissan Leaf?
N/A - you cannot tow a trailer or caravan with this EV.

What is the MPG of the Nissan Leaf?
