Soon to be released: The Nissan Leaf Black Edition will come with its latest generation telematics service.

To mark selling 75,000 plug-in electric cars in Europe, Nissan is building a special exclusive edition Leaf model.

Set to go on sale in March 2017, the Nissan Leaf Black Edition will come with pretty much every optional extra as standard, including Nissan's latest generation telematics service, but it will also come with a number of individual flourishes to help it stand out when charging up at the roadside alongside other EVs.

For instance the car will come with 16in black alloy wheels, a liquid black exterior paint finish and LED headlamps. It will also boast a rear spoiler, illuminated door sills, and even the floor mats will feature contrasting blue stitching.

What's more, the first 1,000 consumers to order a Black Edition will get an in-car WiFi hotspot free of charge.

"The Nissan LEAF Black Edition offers our customers stylish, premium design in an affordable mass-market 100% electric vehicle," said Gareth Dunsmore, director of electric vehicles at Nissan Europe.

The Leaf is capable of covering 155 miles (249.4km) between charges based on the newly implemented European Driving Cycle rating and this particular limited edition will only be available until Aug 2017. —  AFP Relaxnews
