2022 Nissan Leaf Debuts In Europe With Refreshed Look, Two Battery Options
Starting from April this year, Nissan will begin accepting orders for the updated version of the Leaf on the European markets. There are no significant tech upgrades for the new model year, though the refreshed exterior look and the additional customization options should keep the electric vehicle demand high until the rumored high-riding replacement arrives in 2025.
This is essentially the same vehicle that debuted back in 2017 but the exterior is enhanced with new wheel options in 16- and 17-inch sizes. Nissan’s updated brand logo appears on the front fascia, the wheels, and at the back and there’s also a refreshed range of colors. It now includes six monotone shades and five two-tone color options, including the Universal Blue and Magnetic Blue finishes shared with the new Qashqai and Ariya.

Nissan says the Leaf will continue to be available with two battery options in Europe and while there’s no detailed information regarding their capacity, we have no reasons to believe they are different from the available 40 kWh and 62 kWh batteries for the 2021 Leaf. With the larger of the two, the Leaf e+ (sold in the US as the Leaf Plus) has a maximum range at a single charge of 385 kilometers (239 miles) measured by Europe’s WLTP cycle.
