As a globally-popular electric vehicle providing a competitive everyday alternative to more conventional models, the Nissan LEAF is a landmark in motoring. Driving the LEAF is relaxing and enjoyable, as well as bringing you financial, environmental and practical advantages.
Styled using Nissan’s ‘smart fluidity’ concept, the LEAF combines flowing lines and an advanced aerodynamic form. The shape features a high roofline and large rear spoiler to create a distinctive profile, and bespoke blue Nissan badging helps the LEAF stand out as an electric vehicle. The car was designed from the battery up, ensuring every aspect is optimised to increase the range and reduce road and wind noise.
The LEAF’s batteries are stored under the floor, creating interior space for five people to travel in comfort and a capacious boot. The light upholstery and trim colour scheme gives the cabin an airy feel, and the high-quality materials feel comfortable and durable. Another advantage of the LEAF is the high driving position, which provides you with a wide and clear view of the road ahead. In more challenging driving conditions, you remain firmly in control.
Going electric brings a new kind of performance to urban driving, with 254Nm of torque available instantly. This gives you punchy acceleration from a standing start and supreme agility at low speeds. The LEAF produces 108bhp, and claims a top speed of 89mph. City streets and motorway lanes are just as simple to navigate. The low centre of gravity has enabled Nissan to achieve a 50/50 weight distribution across the car, which enhances the handling and responsive feel.
The LEAF has a range of 124 miles from a full charge, and the built-in Eco Mode helps you drive more efficiently. The display makes it easy to keep track of the car’s range. Satellite navigation will also tell you how much charge you will have left at the end of your journey. A full charge from a household charging point takes eight hours. When you are out and about, public charging points will restore the LEAF’s power level to 80 percent in just half an hour. As it is an electric vehicle, the CO2 emissions are non-existent. Combined with cost-effective charging, this ensures that running costs for the LEAF are impressively low.
The Nissan LEAF has been awarded the full five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. It is fitted with all of the protective systems you would expect from a new-generation Nissan. An Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), six airbags, Hill Start Assist (HSA), ISOFIX points and traction control are included as standard on all variants. Front and rear parking sensors are also available as an option to simplify reversing and manoeuvring.
The entry-level Visia model is equipped with Nissan’s efficiency technology to maximise the range of each drive. Eco Mode, regenerative braking and a Stop/Start button help you get the most from each charge. For infotainment, a radio and CD audio system and Bluetooth® connectivity are also included with the LEAF.
Upgrade to the Acenta trim for the innovative Nissan CARWINGS system. It gives you access to information about nearby charging stations on the move and much more. You will also benefit from NissanConnect navigation and entertainment, which is controlled from a touchscreen at the centre console. Automatic headlights and cruise control make driving feel simpler, and the drive computer helps you keep track of your range and energy consumption.
The Acenta+ trim adds an on-board charger, and the range-topping Tekna features a Bose audio system to fill the cabin with immersive surround sound.
