WHAT CAR? AWARDS 2018

NISSAN LEAF NAMED ‘BEST ELECTRIC CAR’

The New Nissan LEAF has been named ‘Best Electric Car’ at this year’s What Car? Awards.

Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car?, praised the award-winning model, saying; “The electric car market has never been more competitive, yet the LEAF saw off all its rivals because it makes the most sense to most buyers. It combines excellent performance with generous standard equipment and low running costs. And even in winter weather, its real-world range is good.”

The all-new LEAF offers a significant update over the previous model with dynamic new styling, advanced technologies and a higher capacity drivetrain, which delivers significant increases in both range and power.

The 2018 LEAF is also the first Nissan model in Europe to feature Nissan’s autonomous ProPILOT technology as well as e-Pedal, which allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop – simply by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator.
