PRICE: from £16,680 Launched in 2011, the Nissan LEAF was one of the first mainstream electric vehicles to hit the market.
While its looks may divide opinion this hasn’t stopped its practicality, decent ride and competitive range from making it one of the most popular EVs on sale.
While the interior isn’t as plush as the Hyundai IONIQ, it still offers plenty of room.
There are two battery choices, a 24kWh unit and a 30kWh unit, which offer ranges of 124 miles and 155 miles respectively. Prices start at £21,680 if you choose to own the battery or from £16,680 if you lease it.
Spacious interior, solid build quality and smooth power delivery
Unfortunate looks, the interior is rather dull and rivals offer greater range
