Established to promote the development of cars that are clean, energy-efficient and kind to the environment, the Green NCAP initiative awarded the Leaf e+ a string of exceptional scores across its three testing parameters, reinforcing the model’s extensive sustainability credentials.
Put through its paces in real-world and laboratory tests according to thorough clean air, greenhouse gas and energy efficiency standards, the zero-emission Leaf e+ achieved a perfect rating in the first two assessments. The design of the electric 62kWh powertrain secured 9.9/10 for its energy efficiency performance, with Green NCAP highlighting its e-Pedal with regenerative energy technology.
As the culmination of ten years of development for the Leaf, the e+ offers customers a blend of efficient electric power and intelligent driver assistance technologies. The model’s 62kWh powertrain yields up to 385 kilonmetres of range under the WLTP combined cycle, while the e-Pedal allows drivers to accelerate, decelerate and stop using one pedal – maximising efficiency on the move.
Customers can enhance energy efficiency further with the model’s B Mode and Eco Mode functionalities, combining to maximise regenerative braking, optimise power output and conserve energy; ensuring confidence and reassurance on long journeys.
