Why choose a Nissan Leaf?

The Nissan Leaf, launched in 2010, is one of the most accessible electric cars available and more than 40,000 have been sold in the UK (according to Nissan). 

It’s no surprise therefore that it’s one of the most popular cars drivers search for when looking for insurance on MoneySuperMarket. 

Nissan’s 100% electric car and van range offer a lot of choice, but the Leaf is a favourite because the hatchback is affordable, when it comes to electric cars. 

It takes the stress out of driving and has some great in-built benefits too using Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility technology. The ProPILOT feature, for example, alerts drivers to the current speed limit, automatically adjusts headlights for oncoming vehicles and keeps your car a safe distance in traffic. 

There is also 360-degree birds-eye view camera that can apply the break and assist you into tricky parking spots. It’s an ideal car for anyone interested in an electric vehicle, and you can find out more on the Nissan website.
