New all-electric Nissan Leaf
Price: from £21,990 to £27,490
Nissan’s second generation all-electric five-seater family car is here, with deliveries beginning on February 2.
The zero-emissions hatchback will, Nissan says, travel 50 per cent further, deliver 38 per cent more power, and cost up to £1,500 less than the original.
But does it live up to the high-voltage hype?
You can drive 168 miles on a full charge — 258 miles in the city.
