NIS­SAN LEAF

Daily Express - - TOTAL EV -

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.

PROS:

Spa­cious in­te­rior, solid build qual­ity and smooth power de­liv­ery

CONS:

Un­for­tu­nate looks, the in­te­rior is rather dull and ri­vals of­fer greater range
