A best-selling 100 percent electric vehicle, the Nissan LEAF is built in Britain and has over 65,000 vehicle owners worldwide. Capable of being charged at home or outdoors, the LEAF offers many opportunities to top up its battery. It has smartphone functionality, allowing two devices to communicate with one another from the vehicle, and offers the uncompromising comfort and ample range of advanced technology that motorists know to expect from Nissan.
The LEAF combines its environmentally-friendly attributes with a smooth and stylish exterior. A streamlined design and low drag coefficient improve performance, whilst extending the life of the battery. Motorists can choose between seven exterior colours as personalisation options, including Pearl Black, Arctic White, Magnetic Red and Gun Metal.
Within the LEAF, a choice of high-quality upholstery materials is available - woven fabric in the "Visia" specification, suede effect fabric in the "Acenta", or leather in the top-of-the-range "Tekna". There is ample space for luggage, with the boot compartment providing 370 litres of space (in the event of the BOSE Sound System being installed within the boot, it still gives an impressive 355 litres of space). A five-seater vehicle, the LEAF has height-adjustable front seats and ample legroom at the back, ensuring that everybody is comfortable. There is also the option of heated seats and a heated steering wheel, providing extra levels of luxury. The control panel has blue-lit dials and a clear digital dashboard display, with a 7" LCD screen serving as the centrepiece.
Nissan's 80kW AC Electric Motor allows the LEAF to achieve a maximum range of 124 miles (NEDC cycle). Using a domestic plug and cable, the LEAF can charge whenever and wherever you like; charging the battery in this fashion will take approximately 12 hours. The Home Charging Unit can be installed by an approved electrician, allowing full charge to be reached between four and eight hours. Rapid charge is also available, giving motorists the capability of going from zero to 80 percent charge in half an hour.
Included safety systems are the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), as well as Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS). Six airbags are installed as standard, and two ISOFIX child safety seat fittings are included.
