Choosing a LEAF means choosing Nissan, world leaders in 100% electric. Making responsible and economical driving a reality, the reasons for switching to electric driving with us are endless. But here are a few to consider:
Leave city noise behind with a quiet, 100% electric drive
LOW RUNNING COST
Travel 100 miles on the cost of just one cup of coffee. One of the many benefits of switching to the 100% electric Leaf.
PLUG-IN CAR GRANT
From March 1st 2016, the 100% Nissan LEAF will qualify for a £4,500 Plug-In Car Grant from the UK Government, while plug-in hybrids will only receive £2,500.

HOW AND WHERE TO CHARGE
RAPID CHARGER (30 MINUTES)
Every LEAF features a Rapid Charge Port, allowing you to plug into a rapid charger and reach up to 80% charge in 30 minutes.
HOME CHARGING UNIT (FROM 4 HOURS)
Charge overnight using a 32A home charging unit and reach full charge in approximately seven hours (24kWh) or nine and a half hours (30kWh).
PLUG INTO THE MAINS (12-15 HOURS)
The most conventional way of charging the Nissan LEAF is via the supplied cable, which plugs directly into a regular domestic supply. This allows you to charge anywhere there is a standard wall socket.
COST OF OWNERSHIP
Because the Nissan LEAF uses no petrol or diesel, filling up drains very little from your wallet. In fact, you'll be surprised by the savings you make once you go electric.
Oil changes and maintenance of complex mechanical components will also be a thing of the past. That’s because the Nissan LEAF hatchback doesn’t have an internal-combustion engine or a traditional gearbox, so it has far fewer moving parts.
You'll spend less on maintenance and enjoy far lower fuel costs thanks to the difference in electricity cost compared to petrol or diesel.
Prices start from £21,530. The UK Government offers an incentive for buyers, with a grant covering up to 35% of the value of the car, to a maximum of either £2,500 or £4,500 depending on the model.
HOW FAR DOES IT GO?
The Nissan LEAF’s impressive range will more than cover what most people need for a day’s driving, with up to 155 miles from a single charge.*
Engineered for the real world with an NEDC range of up to 124 miles (LEAF 24kWh) or up to 155 miles (LEAF 30kWh), it's easily enough to cover most people's needs. The Nissan LEAF also gives you the information to get more out of every charge. These include energy-saving driving modes and the multi-function meter displaying performance telemetry information.
There are a number of ways to ensure maximum range. Setting a moderate cabin temperature, pre-heating or pre-cooling your Nissan LEAF while it’s still charging to save more of the battery for the road, driving at constant speeds, minimising rapid acceleration and using ECO or B Mode.
