NISSAN Leaf review

NGC verdict 19.10.2015

Next Green Car was one of the few UK publications to be sent on the European launch of the new Nissan Leaf 30kWh. The headline news coming from the new model is the electric vehicle's (EV) longer range - a 25 per cent increase over the old version. This takes the official figure to 155 miles available on a single charge. The question is though, can it live up to the promise? Making the most of a varied route in the south of France, taking in the congested cities of Nice and Monaco, a climb up the Col de Turini in the Alpes-Maritime, and runs along wide motorways, we really put this new Leaf to the test.
