The Nissan LEAF is the UK’s best-selling electric vehicle. With an impressive range of up to 155 miles, it can go for longer on one charge than any of its competitors. It’s an affordable, environmentally friendly car for the whole family.
This game-changing, 100 percent electric hatchback has an innovative exterior to match. It’s simultaneously functional and stylish, with an attractive streamlined shape to minimise wind lag and optimise performance. The smooth movement of the body begins from the low-down bonnet, flowing through to the muscular shoulders and on to the large rear spoiler. Upward-slanting headlights split to redirect airflow away from the door mirrors. Take your pick from seven vibrant paint colours to create a car that reflects your personality.
There are plenty of customisation options in the five-seater cabin, too. Choose from Visia woven fabric, Acenta suede-effect material or Tekna leather upholstery. For an extra touch of sophistication, add heated seats for premium comfort. Futuristic blue lighting reflects the new Nissan LEAF’s hi-tech credentials. In the 370-litre boot, there’s lots of room for the family’s luggage. As the electric motor is virtually silent, the interior is peaceful. A light on the dashboard lets you know that the car is switched on and ready to drive.
Say goodbye to petrol and diesel when you buy the new Nissan LEAF. Two battery capacities are available – 24kW and 30kW – and costs are as low as 2p per mile. The 30kW AC electric motor boasts a range of up to 150 miles and generates zero emissions. Home charging through a domestic plug socket takes around 12 hours, while Nissan’s own home charging unit reduces this to between four and eight hours. Change to rapid charge mode you’ll hit 80 percent charge in just half an hour. The LEAF’s green credentials are as impressive as they come, and it’s also very cheap to run.
Technology and safety
Safety is another highlight on the new Nissan LEAF. Standard features include six airbags around the cabin for full coverage, and ISOFIX child-seat anchors for quick and simple installation. Anti-lock braking and electronic brakeforce distribution work in partnership with the traction control system to optimise stability. Even the entry-level Visia comes with a reversing camera, satellite navigation and keyless entry. Many functions are accessed via the seven-inch LCD screen, which is highly intuitive and comfortably within the reach of the driver.
