Review Summary
Could this be the beginning of the end for the internal combustion engine? The Nissan Leaf is the first serious mainstream production car to be powered by electricity. It emits zero CO2, can be charged at home for next to nothing. Most importantly it drives like a mainstream car.

Review Summary
The Leaf was always a useful car, just hampered by a few small but important details. With these latest changes it has become a uniquely charming second family car only limited by the current lack of public charging infrastructure in the UK.

The Nissan Leaf is easy, fun and comfortable to drive. Just make sure you can live with the limited range.

The lack of local emissions and low running costs will no doubt prove appealing to some.

Review Summary
The Leaf will never be as popular as a Ford Focus or VW Golf but, it is an interesting insight into the future. The way the LEAF drives is not that dissimilar to a conventional powered car, and it feels comfortable and easy particularly in an urban environment. It also feels spacious and reasonably well-equipped.

Does most things mostly as well as a family hatch. Better and more viable now it’s British-built.

Nissan’s Leaf is still one of the best electric cars on sale – but it’s not without its drawbacks.
