Held at Silverstone Circuit the annual awards ceremony, celebrates the world’s best cars and those who make them.

Mark Tisshaw, Editor of Autocar, said; “Nissan’s purely electric hatchback is already a game changer, having sold to the tune of more than 300,000 units since its introduction in 2010. No zero-emission rival has managed to bottle quite the same blend of range and usability at an affordable price, though several have come increasingly close.”

“The second-generation model represents a towering achievement for Nissan. Simply, this car moves the LEAF out ahead of its would-be rivals once again. Conventional combustion-engine rivals also now face a greater threat from this Nissan than at any point to date. Few, if any electric cars, and certainly none at this price point, offer such a compelling case for making the switch.”

Alex Smith, Managing Director of Nissan Motor GB commented, “We’re simply delighted with this official recognition by Autocar of the strengths of the New Nissan LEAF, not just in the EV segment but also as a compelling proposition to any drivers looking to change to 100% electric.”

“The 2018 LEAF is far more than just an electric vehicle though. Through Nissan Intelligent Mobility it can become a mobile energy hub, providing clean, renewable power to homes and businesses and even saving owners money on their energy bills – all whilst reducing environmental impact.”

The New Nissan LEAF, the worlds best selling electric car is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility. Manufactured in the UK at Nissan’s plant in Sunderland, the LEAF embodies a whole new driving experience, designed to connected people to the world around them, thanks to intelligent features such as ProPILOT, e-Pedal and bi-directional charging.
