The Nissan Leaf 3 years on.

The Nissan Leaf 3 years on.

 

Nissan launched the Nissan Leaf back in 2011 – not everyone was convinced by the idea of an electric vehicle so what is the feeling only 3 years on?  Nissan GB have conducted research involving 6,500 British Leaf owners to find out ……..

Of those owners questioned a massive 93% reported that their Nissan Leaf was used as the main family car and 89% reported it has made them significant savings when compared to a combustion engine car.

These responses are overwhelmingly positive and I’m sure Nissan are hoping they will encourage others to be brave and try an electric vehicle.  Nissan found that 95 % of their respondents would recommend a Nissan Leaf to a friend and 64% say they find the Leaf better to drive than a petrol or diesel engine. 

Sales figures confirm that perhaps the nation is starting to accept the idea of an electric vehicle and have converting to green cars slowly but surely.  In September this year Nissan recorded selling 851 Leafs – the highest figure yet for a single month.  So far this year just over 3,600 Leafs have been sold.

The main source of concern with a purely electric vehicle was the issue of charging, people were worried they would run out of charge without a charging point in sight.  This worry now seems silly as there are an impressive 7512 charging points across the UK -seen in the map below.  At https://www.zap-map.com/ you can check the location of each charging point so you are never left stranded!

Nissans also reports from their survey that one Leaf owner was having frequent disputes with his wife over who got to drive the Leaf that day, so eventually, he sold his Aston Martin to buy a second Leaf and end the disputes ……..That really is dedication to the environment!

Here’s just a few of the electric vehicles we have for business or personal lease at Rivervale …..
