Nissan has announced a significant 3,000 EUR price cut in Europe for the all-electric Leaf.

After reducing the price tag of the U.S.-spec Leaf by 6,400 USD, the European version will also be a lot more affordable from now on. Taking into consideration available incentives, a French customer can get the car for 25,990 EUR while someone in UK can order it for 23,490 GBP.

Power comes from a compact electric motor driving the front wheels and generating 107 hp (80 kW) and an instant torque of 280 Nm (206 lb-ft). Thanks to this setup, the Leaf is able to reach a top speed of more than 145 km/h (90 mph) and has a 175 km (108 mile) range as tested in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).

With a regular domestic socket, charging the battery takes eight hours while with a quick charger it can be done in only 30 minutes. From a 30 percent to an 80 percent level it takes approximately 15 minutes with the quick charger.

Production will start this spring at the Nissan European plant in Sunderland, United Kingdom.
