Promoted | Nissan LEAF: Home for the holidays
Winter traffic can be stressful, but the 100% electric Nissan LEAF makes motorway and city driving safer and more relaxing...
Everyone loves the chance to re-unite with far-flung relatives at Christmas and New Year. No-one, though, enjoys navigating holiday traffic, which is why we have developed Nissan Intelligent Mobility features in the 100% electric Nissan LEAF to make driving easier and safer.
The simple one-touch e-Pedal lets you speed up, slow down and brake using just one pedal, while Nissan ProPILOT keeps you centred in your lane and maintains a pre-set speed and distance to the car in front. It even brings you to a complete stop and gets you moving again in stop-start traffic. At the same time, Intelligent Emergency Braking and Blind Spot Warning watch the environment around you for unseen hazards.
We’ve also made navigating the city easier than ever before. It starts with ProPILOT Park, which makes parking a breeze. After selecting your spot, the LEAF parks itself as you simply hold down a button. Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns you of unseen hazards in your blind spot when reversing, while the Intelligent Around View monitor uses cameras to create a 360-degree birds-eye view around the LEAF, helping you to avoid obstacles.
Plus, with a 168 to 242-mile range* (WLTP Combined and City Cycle) and simple home charging, the Nissan LEAF helps you visit more family, with less time wasted queuing at busy, expensive petrol stations. So, rather than letting winter driving wear you down, maybe it’s time to let the Nissan LEAF lend a hand.
Perfect for the family
As well as being a zero-emissions 100% electric car, the Nissan LEAF is a spacious and practical hatchback that seats five in comfort, with up to 435 litres (VDA) of load space with the rear seats up. If Santa has been extra generous, it boasts up to 1,176 litres (VDA) with the rear seats down.
