The 100% electric Nissan LEAF has been a game-changer since its launch. With no oil, exhaust pipe or petrol tank, this best-selling car is one of the cleanest and most economic vehicles on the road.
The new LEAF is undeniably stylish, but also cleverly designed with efficiency in mind. Its aerodynamic body allows for minimal air resistance and the futuristic headlights cut drag even further by directing air away from the side mirrors. The innovative Regenerative Braking System converts energy from braking into reusable power, while the rear spoiler boasts a solar panel that charges the 12V accessory battery and helps to power features including the stereo and headlights.
The LEAF’s interior offers superior comfort, with a roomy cabin easily accommodating five passengers. A heated leather steering wheel and heated folding rear seats - made partly from recycled bottles - promise a cosy drive whatever the weather, while the optional Nissan Navigation system includes hands-free text messaging to ensure a relaxing and safe journey. You can also opt for the CARWINGS information system, which shows the nearest charging station and allows you to save even more by booking in an off-peak charge for your LEAF.
With no gearbox, you’ll feel the power of the LEAF from the moment you touch the pedal. There’s no vibration or engine noise you get from a non-electric car, so expect the quietest ride from Nissan’s top-of-the-range electric hatchback. With 105bhp and an average range of 84 miles per charge through a 24kWh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, this electric car packs a quiet but powerful punch. On top of all that, LEAF owners are exempt from road tax, company car tax and London’s Congestion Charge - thanks to zero emissions.
As the first electric vehicle to be awarded a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, the Nissan LEAF is one of the most secure vehicles on the road. First class safety features include the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) and three-point seatbelts for all seats, while the Nissan Vehicle Immobilizer system ensures peace of mind when it comes to security.
