5 reasons to buy a Nissan LEAF

The 100% electric Nissan LEAF has been developed using game-changing technology. As a car that produces zero emissions while driving, the LEAF rewrites the driving rulebook. With so many great features, we thought we'd pick the top five things that make the LEAF a cut above the rest.

Design

From the flat under-body tray to the cleverly sculpted headlights, which deflect air around the door mirrors, the Nissan LEAF not only looks great, it's been carefully designed for optimum performance. The aerodynamic shape has a drag coefficient of just 0.28, which means that wind resistance and noise are kept down, whilst efficiency soars.

Price

With our great deals and prices, it's no surprise that the Nissan LEAF is a great price. But as it uses no petrol or diesel, the LEAF will leave your wallet feeling fuller for longer. In fact, people are often surprised by the amount of money they save by going electric. Plus, the Nissan LEAF hatchback doesn’t have an internal-combustion engine or a traditional gearbox, so oil changes will also be a thing of the past and you'll save further money on the overall vehicle maintenance.

Charge it up

Whilst a lot of people think that charging an electric car is hard work, it couldn't be easier with the Nissan LEAF. With a dedicated mains socket or a home charging unit installed, it's as easy as charging your mobile phone. With a 32A home charging unit and the option of a 6.6kW on-board charger, the LEAF will be fully charged and ready to go in approximately four hours.

A smooth ride

You can take our word about how much of a dream the LEAF is to drive, or you can listen to the science behind it. The floor-mounted battery pack creates a low centre of gravity, which makes for some very smooth handling, and helping the LEAF to corner with minimal body rolls. But you could always book a test drive and find out for yourself!

Intelligence

With the NissanConnect EV, owning an electric car has never been easier. The innovative system will link your Nissan LEAF to your smartphone, tablet or computer, so you can stay connected wherever you are. Using your smartphone or computer, you'll be able to manage various things such as remotely scheduling a charging time or activating the climate control.
