About the LEAF

The Nissan LEAF is the best selling electric vehicle in the UK, and we'd say there are two very good reasons for this; it's probably the most affordable family EV on the market, and it's a pretty great car.

Design

It's based on the latest Micra, meaning there's good boot space and a decent amount of legroom in the back. By all accounts it's a very comfortable drive and the battery range is sufficient for the majority of families.

Sustainability

Aside from the drive quality, the LEAF is the perfect environmental car.
There are some great proof points for this, our favourites include:

  • The sound insulation is made from repurposed clothes that are blended up
    and reconstituted

  • Some of the plastics in the car are made from repurposed waste from
    electrical appliances

  • The seats are formed from a synthetic material made from old PET soda bottles

  • The bumpers are made from old damaged bumpers, broken down into pellets and formed into shiny new ones
