If you're looking for a fully electric SUV that fits the entire family then the Leaf is a great choice for you.
The Nissan Leaf is a fully electric hatchback with a range of up to 168 or 239 miles depending on whether you go for the Leaf or Leaf e+ model respectively. The standard Leaf has a 40 kWh battery and a range of up to 168 miles which is plenty of miles for your daily needs. If you regularly do longer journeys you might want to look at the Leaf e+ which has a new 62 kWh battery that offers a longer range of 239 miles.
One thing to be mindful of is that the Nissan Leaf has a maximum charging capability is 46 kW.
As well as being fully electric the Leaf is packed full of technology like the ePedal, which you press for power and simply ease off to slow down, and Nissan’s innovative Propilot system, which at the push of a button can follow the vehicle ahead at a pre-set distance, stop and move again with the flow of traffic and keep you in the centre of your lane.
The Japanese manufacturer is known for producing reliable vehicles and the Leaf's popularity in the EV market is a testament to this. Ever since it was first introduced in 2010 it has remained a solid choice for drivers that want an electric family car.
As an SUV it measures 4,490mm in length, 2,030mm width and between 1530mm and 1545mm height depending on the spec you choose. The boot space is a modest 435 litres when all seats are occupied but if you're able to put the rear row down this will grow to 1,176 litres.
The Leaf is a great choice for city drivers and those who regularly travel short distances but still want to drive a larger vehicle. An electric SUV is a unique option as it allows you to drive a large car without worrying about a diesel particulate filter (DPF) becoming clogged, fuel usage or pollution levels.
The Leaf is currently available in Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna trim levels and the Leaf e+ is available in N-Connecta and Tekna trims. The Acenta is the entry-level model and offers you plenty as standard including a rear-view camera, automatic lights and wipers, keyless start and plenty of safety systems. If you want heated seats, front and rear, privacy glass or a 360 degree camera then the middle N-Connecta is the car for you. Top of the Line Tekna offers LED headlights, an electronic parking brake and their driver assistance system called Pro Pilot. You can browse our current offers across all trim levels by scrolling up.

The newest version of the Nissan Leaf has an estimated real life range of around 145 miles, which fluctuates depending on where you spend most of your time driving, the weather, any fitted accessories, driving styles and more. City driving helps extend the range as much as possible, with Nissan stating that it has an official range of up to 239 miles.
With a 40kWh battery, the cost to fully charge a Nissan Leaf has been estimated to be around £11.20, at a cost per mile of just over 6.5p. This is excellent value for money all things considered, and shows that a lot of money can be saved by switching to an EV in the long run.
The battery size of your Nissan Leaf will change the length of time it takes to fully charge. Specialist site Pod Point estimates that charging at a 7kW charging station will take around 6 hours from empty to full, while a rapid charger of 46kW takes around 40 minutes to charge from 20% to 80%.
