What Car? - - Our Cars -

The start of the year is tra­di­tion­ally a time for cel­e­brat­ing achievements and suc­cess – whether it’s the Os­cars, TV’S Golden Globes, or the wealth of car and tech­nol­ogy awards cer­e­monies that take place dur­ing the win­ter months.

Head­ing into 2018, the New Nis­san LEAF has al­ready been the re­cip­i­ent of sev­eral prizes for in­no­va­tion, giv­ing you even more rea­sons to con­sider the lat­est ver­sion of the world’s best-sell­ing zero-emis­sions elec­tric car.

One award recog­nised Nis­san’s in­volve­ment in de­vel­op­ing elec­tric ve­hi­cle in­fra­struc­ture and driv­ing wider im­prove­ments across the elec­tric car in­dus­try.

This comes as lit­tle surprise when you con­sider that the New LEAF’S high-tech lithium-ion bat­ter­ies de­liver an ex­tended driv­ing range of up to 235 miles (NEDC) on a sin­gle charge, and can be recharged to 80% ca­pac­ity in around 40 min­utes. The New LEAF will even be able to help you save money, by put­ting en­ergy back into the grid when it is charged at home.

Nis­san has also re­ceived a CES Best Of In­no­va­tion award for ‘Ve­hi­cle In­tel­li­gence & Self-driv­ing Tech­nol­ogy’. It recog­nised the New LEAF’S in­tel­li­gent and semi-au­ton­o­mous driv­ing fea­tures – such as PROPILOT, which takes the stress out of mo­tor­way driv­ing and im­proves safety.

The New Nis­san LEAF 2.ZERO lim­ited-edi­tion is avail­able to re­serve on­line now, so this could be the per­fect time to learn more about what makes the New LEAF such an award-win­ning hit.
