Nissan LEAF: It’s time to enjoy driving again - A Review By WhatCar?

With the return of long summer journeys, there has never been a better time to consider the Nissan LEAF as your next car. Every element of its all-electric design and driver-friendly technology has been honed to take the stress out of driving and put the joy back into every trip.

Plenty of range for big adventures

With 239 miles of range (WLTP combined) on the new LEAF e+ N-TEC model[1], Nissan’s electric pacesetter is perfect for big journeys, as well as all of the numerous short trips – such as commuting, school runs or food shopping – that you make every day. So, whether you’re escaping to the country or catching up with loved ones, you can drive off confident you’ve got the range to match whatever adventure you are planning.

On-the-go charging that's simple and fast

Overnight home charging – allied to a 0% BIK tax rate that was introduced in April 2020[2]– helps to reduce running costs. And, with rapid 50kW CHAdeMO public chargers getting you from 20% to 80% charge in as little as an hour on LEAF Acenta, N-Connecta or Tekna models – or just 90 minutes on the longer-range LEAF e+ models[3]– it’s easy to use the UK’s fast-growing charging infrastructure to top up mid-trip.

Take the stress out of driving

The Nissan LEAF e+ N-TEC is also perfect for enjoying the open road, with 214bhp (217PS) and 250lb ft (340Nm) of instant electric torque delivering confident acceleration. On busy motorways, Advanced Nissan ProPILOT driving aids help you control the speed of the Nissan LEAF in traffic, keep it centred in its lane, and make you aware of passing traffic for easier, safer driving – while the Intelligent Around View Monitor and automated ProPILOT Park make parking a breeze at your destination[4].

Tech that helps you plan your next trip

Finally, when you’re planning your next trip or your return journey home, you can use the NissanConnect Services app to sync navigation from compatible smartphones to your LEAF, or pre-cool the car’s interior without losing any range. So, whether it’s planning your next trip, enjoying the journey, or appreciating the cost benefits of all-electric power, the Nissan LEAF e+ N-TEC really does help you enjoy driving again.
