As an early adopter of electric technology, the Nissan LEAF combines electric innovation and a practical appeal. It is one of the first cars that brought electric cars to the masses. A solid option for anyone looking to dip their toes into electric driving. Especially if you are on a tighter budget.
The good news is that since it's been out for over a decade and more than 200,000 units have been produced there are ample models to choose from on the used Nissan market.
It is worth noting that you will need to be careful which model you pick up as very early models didn’t have a generous range, only managing around 80-miles on a full charge. Upgrades that saw later in its life say it raised to a 30kwh battery that could break the 100-mile range. Then the latest model was released in 2018 that saw a huge performance boost with a 62kWh battery that could manage 235-miles on a single charge.
The first reason you would want to pick up a Nissan LEAF is that you would struggle to find an alternative electric car this affordable. You can find a car for even as little as £5,000 for a decent example. No surprise it was the best selling electric car for many years. It is also exempt from road tax and any emissions-based road charges.
It’s fair to say the LEAF is far from an impractical choice. Interior space and boot size are both solid on this hatchback. It also certainly keeps pace with other cars in its class.
Drive quality of the Nissan LEAF is brilliant. Smooth, silent, responsive, and all-around relaxing experience. This makes the Nissan LEAF ideal for anyone looking for a comfortable, affordable driving experience. Plenty of appeals and all with generous levels of equipment as standard.
Another reason to purchase this used Nissan is the solid safety scores it achieves. Taking the full five stars across the board. Scoring particularly well for adults and children with 93% and 86% respectively. Vulnerable road users and safety assist both scored a respectable 71% in these categories.
There are a few different LEAF’s to choose from to suit a broad range of needs. Options here begin with the Acenta trim. This model has 16” alloys, front fog lights, a six-speaker system, rearview camera, Intelligent Cruise control, automatic wipers, blindspot warning, rear cross-traffic alerts, and an 8” touchscreen.
Then there is the N-Connecta above that. It upgrades your wheels to 17”, rear privacy glass, electric folding mirrors, part-leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, an intelligent around-view monitor, and front and rear parking sensors. A far more luxurious driving experience. There is also an E+ variant that features a revised suspension, larger battery and higher power output.
At the top of the Nissan trims, there is the Tekna. It brings a premium appeal by adding full LED headlights and fog lights, leather Ultrasuede seats, and a Bose sound system with ProPilot semi-autonomous driver assistance. There is also a E+ version that adds the same premium features you find in the previous version.
Keep an eye out on how old the vehicle you are looking at is. Older models might have been purchased on a battery scheme. Getting caught out here would cost you around £70 per month. Quite a big surprise for what is typically a very affordable car. You will also want to make sure you have the charging cables in the car. If you don’t have the charging cable it will cost you a few hundred to replace.
You will also want to keep an eye on the batteries age with it having to be replaced every eight years due to the drop in performance.
