Ownership cost

What used Nissan Leaf hatchback will I get for my budget?

Used prices for the latest Leaf start at around £17,500, which gets you an early 2018 model with high mileage. If you want something less leggy, you'll need to increase your budget to £19,000 or more. An e+ Leaf with the bigger battery pack is still around £30,000, which is quite a lot when you consider that the discounted price of a new example, through our New Car Buying service, is currently a little over £33k, and the Leaf still qualifies for the government grant of £3000, too.

As you'd expect, the 62kWh version takes longer to charge: up to 90 minutes for the same 20-80% 50kWh charge; and 11.5 hours from a wallbox, or 32 hours from a three-pin plug going from empty to full.

CO2 emissions

Since this is an electric car, there are no exhaust pipe emissions to have to worry about. Choose a renewable energy tariff for extra green points.

Road tax

Annual car tax will be zero, as will be the London Congestion Charge (after you've paid to register your car on their system, of course). To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.

Servicing

Servicing is required every 18,000 miles and costs £159 for a minor service, and £209 for a major one.  

Insurance

All versions of the Leaf are in group 21 for insurance, which is lower than the Volkswagen e-Golf, BMW i3, Kia e-Niro and Hyundai Kona; but R110 models of the Renault Zoe are lower still.
