Nissan LEAF wins Best EV 2017

The current generation Nissan LEAF Acenta has been named ‘Best EV’ in the 2017 Auto Express Used Car Awards.

This is the second year in a row that the Nissan LEAF has been recognised in the awards, having won ‘Best Used Green Car’ in 2016.

The Auto Express judging panel commented, ‘Electric cars are the next big thing in the car industry. In a few years there will be more choice in showrooms, but for now, there are some great deals to be had on the first mainstream EV success story, the Nissan LEAF.’

‘An average commute will be more than covered by the 24kWh LEAF’s 124-mile range, but later models are available with a larger 30kWh battery that increases this to 155 miles. With the cost to charge the Nissan standing at only a few pounds, it’s bound to save you money, and a used model gives access to this technology at an affordable price.’
