Nissan Leaf scoops WhatCar? 2018 'Best Electric Car' Award

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.”

Nissan’s xStorage was also ‘Commended’ in the ‘Technology Award’ category, an accolade which recognises innovative new technology developments. xStorage is an energy storage system that uses recycled batteries from Nissan’s electric vehicles, allowing customers to store energy to run their homes, and even sell excess power back to the National Grid.

2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the What Car? Awards, one of the most widely-recognised and respected awards ceremonies among car buyers. Over 114 cars are judged against 21 different awards categories.

The all-new LEAF has had a complete makeover with exciting new styling, advanced technologies and a class-leading range of up to 235 miles on a single charge!

The LEAF is also Nissan’s first model in Europe to feature their 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.

This stunning new car has now available to test drive and order in Specialist Cars Nissan showrooms in Aberdeen, Dundee and Perth.

The new Nissan LEAF is the icon for Nissan Intelligent Mobility. Redefining how we move with 3 key areas;

  • Intelligent Power, which is brought to life through the LEAF’s advanced new 40kWh e-powertrain, with improved energy efficiency, increased torque and power output for more exciting driving.
  • Intelligent Driving, which is technology designed to improve driving confidence, enhance safety and reduce stress.
  • Intelligent Integration, the linking of the car to wider society via connectivity and to energy grids via unique bi-directional charging technology.

Much more than just a 100% electric vehicle, the LEAF is a whole new driving experience, designed to move people with greater exhilaration, confidence and connection to the world around them.

Following the new LEAF’s European debut in October 2017, the car has already created unprecedented levels of interest amongst both new and existing electric vehicle drivers. To date, more than 12,000 new Nissan LEAFs have been ordered across Europe.
