In the inaugural Electrifying.com Awards 2021, the Nissan Leaf has been named ‘Best Used Electric Car’
Previously, the Nissan Leaf has been rewarded for its used qualification. It was named ‘Used Electric Car of the Year’ in the What Car? Used Car of the Year Awards 2021, and ‘Best Used Electric Car’ in the Driving Electric 2020 Awards.
The first leaf model which launched in 2010, was also recognized in the awards that celebrate the electric cars, innovations and developments that represent significant achievements in their fields.
When it was launched in 2010, the LEAF was the world’s first standard all-electric passenger vehicle, with the first UK customers taking delivery in early 2011. The second generation LEAF launched in early 2018, and now offers two battery capacities – 40kWh and 62kWh – giving drivers a choice of range and performance specifications.
Since the LEAF’s European introduction in early 2011, LEAF owners have together prevented more than 2.5 million tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere every year, while covering enough distance to drive around the earth 400,000 times.
All grades of LEAF and both battery capacities are currently eligible for the revised Plug-In Car Grant of £2,500, which is offered on electric vehicles under £35,000 RRP. The OTR price makes the LEAF range one of the most accessible C-segment hatchback EVs, starting from just £25,995 OTR (including government grant).
