Introduction

What Car? says...

If you think the Nissan Leaf and other electric cars are a 21st century invention, prepare yourself for a surprise: EVs date back to Victorian times.

Yes, there were battery-powered horseless carriages whirring around city streets well before the turn of the last century, and electric cars once dominated land-speed records. That said, there’s a big difference between the Leaf and its ancestors.

So, is the Nissan Leaf better than those alternatives, and will it really fit into your lifestyle if you’re switching from a petrol or diesel car? We’ll tell you all you need to know over the next few pages of this review, including how it handles and whether it's cheap to run, along with which trim and power option make the most sense.

Remember, if you do decide to buy one – or any make and model of vehicle – make sure you search our free What Car? New Car Buying service to find out how much you could save on the asking price with no need for any bartering. There are some, er, electrifying Nissan Leaf deals to check out.
