The start of the year is traditionally a time for celebrating achievements and success – whether it’s the Oscars, TV’s Golden Globes, or the wealth of car and technology awards ceremonies that take place during the winter months.

Heading into 2018, the New Nissan LEAF has already been the recipient of several prizes for innovation, giving you even more reasons to consider the latest version of the world’s best-selling zero-emissions electric car.

One award recognised Nissan’s involvement in developing electric vehicle infrastructure and driving wider improvements across the electric car industry.

This comes as little surprise when you consider that the New LEAF’s high-tech lithium-ion batteries deliver an extended driving range of up to 235 miles (NEDC) on a single charge, and can be recharged to 80% capacity in around 40 minutes. The New LEAF will even be able to help you save money, by putting energy back into the grid when it is charged at home.

Nissan has also received a CES Best Of Innovation award for β€˜Vehicle Intelligence & Self-Driving Technology’. It recognised the New LEAF’s intelligent and semi-autonomous driving features – such as ProPILOT, which takes the stress out of motorway driving and improves safety.

The New Nissan LEAF 2.ZERO limited-edition is available to reserve online now, so this could be the perfect time to learn more about what makes the New LEAF such an award-winning hit.

What You Think

The New Nissan LEAF has received great reviews, but perhaps the most important verdict belongs to you – our customers. What Car? recently showcased the New LEAF at one of its reader test team previews, and attendees were quick to praise its features.

Solicitor Chris Shipley said: β€œThe New LEAF is a major improvement. Its realistic range of around 180 miles is impressive. There’s some state-of-the-art technology on show, too” His views were backed up by local government officer Jeremy Kennett: β€œThe New LEAF can serve as a family car. It’s comfortable, with plenty of space. And the technology is amazing.”

Existing LEAF owner Geoff Watkins was also impressed by the New LEAF’s upgrades. β€œMy LEAF has met every expectation, and beyond. I’d never go back to a petrol car now.”

No fuel is good fuel

Both Nissan and What Car? are committed to helping drivers understand the real cost of motoring.
