What used Nissan Leaf hatchback will I get for my budget?
Used prices for the latest Leaf start at around £15,000, which gets you an early 2018 model with high mileage. If you want something less leggy, you'll need to increase your budget to £17,000 or more. An e+ Leaf with the bigger battery pack is around £25,000, 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 £32k. Spend between £20,000 and £25,000 on a 2020 or 2021 car, and £25,000 to £32,000 on a 2022 model.

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.

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.
