The Nissan Leaf has been named the ‘Best Used Electric Car’ in the Driving Electric 2020 Awards which celebrate the best hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric cars on sale.
Since Nissan launched the first-generation Leaf in 2010, creating the first mass-market electric vehicle, EV technology has continually improved, with the latest models both affordable and practical for the vast majority of car buyers.
The second-generation Leaf, launched in 2018, is the icon of Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility strategy; featuring driving assistance technologies such as ProPILOT and ProPILOT Park, and the unique e-Pedal which allows drivers to start, accelerate and decelerate to a complete stop simply through the operation of one pedal.
Customers also benefit from Nissan’s new NissanConnect infotainment system, with larger 8” touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto. An upgraded navigation system features TomTom LIVE premium traffic and route optimisation, as well as the inbuilt Online Map Update facility and Chargers Location functionality.
“As you might expect from the world’s best-selling electric car, there’s no shortage of examples on the used market” said Vicky Parrott, associate editor, DrivingElectric. “They represent superb value for money, and buyers will enjoy a spacious and comfortable car that’s easy to live with.
