Why did you choose this car?
Originally ordered a MINI Electric but had delivery date continually put back so cancelled my order. Was able to get much quicker delivery on the LEAF and the monthly lease payment was cheaper.


Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car.

  • Space
  • comfort
  • refinement.


Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car.

  • No Nissan Connect app support on this model
  • not got a heat pump heater system
  • no sat nav.


Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?


What are the standout tech features of the car?
Driving safety features particularly blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control & automatic emergency braking.


Surprise us! Tell us something people wouldn’t readily know about this car.
If the adaptive cruise control slows the car down due to a slower car in front when you indicate right to overtake, the car automatically starts to accelerate as you start to turn the steering, bit of a wow moment the first time it happened.


Rate your EV out of 5.


What car are you interested in next and why?
Too early to say.


What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Do not have a home charger on cost grounds as I don’t do high mileage. If needed, I use the supplied 3 pin domestic plug charging lead but generally use public chargers.
