Nissan LEAF: So, you’re thinking Electric…why else would you be here?

June 22, 2017

Manufactured in Sunderland, the Nissan LEAF has just recorded its 20,000th U.K sale and with ever changing attitudes and evolving infrastructure, there has never been a better time to switch to the electric side of driving. Think zero emissions, reduced fuel costs, game-changing technology and you’ll be on the road to an electric future.

You’d be forgiven in thinking ‘yeah, but’, when it comes to buying a Nissan LEAF. So, let us run you through a few ‘yeah buts’ of our own.

Yeah, but…They’re more economical…

The Nissan LEAF comes with huge economic benefits. Driving a LEAF will see you reduce fuel costs by up to 80%. Let’s work with a few numbers…the conventional car user averages around 12,000 miles a year, which breaks down to £1,440 a year, at 12 pence a mile. Compare that, with a zero emissions Nissan LEAF, where the cost per mile can be as low as 2 pence with annual savings over a thousand pounds. Oh, and by the way, say goodbye to Road Tax (and congestion charges if you live in London) when you purchase a Nissan Leaf.

Yeah, but…There’s evolving infrastructure…

Charging your LEAF has never been so easy – As well as being able to charge it at home,  the U.K has over 10,000 charging points, with accessibility at every single motorway station in the U.K. The Nissan LEAF’s sat-nav has a database of all the charging points close to you during your journey, providing you with knowledge, accessibility and peace of mind. Last but not least, feel free to pop into a West Way Nissan dealership, where we’ll be happy to provide your LEAF with free charging.

Ways you can ensure maximum range for your LEAF include, setting a moderate cabin temperature, pre-heating or pre-cooling your LEAF whilst it’s charging, driving at constant speeds and using ECO mode.

Yeah, but…The battery is protected…

At West Way, we understand changing to the electric side of driving is a big step, which is why, when you purchase a Nissan LEAF, your battery is protected. The LEAF’s powertrain, including the battery, is covered for 5 years or 60,000 miles (whichever occurs first). Or choose a 30kWh battery and the cover (specifically for capacity loss on the lithium-ion battery) increases to eight years or 100,000 miles – this will protect you against capacity loss of more than 25%. West Way will keep you driving into the future, with power, performance and protection.

Yeah, but…It’s environmentally friendly…

Make no mistake, the future is green and with zero emissions the Nissan LEAF is pioneering the way for a more sustainable environmentally friendly future. Reducing costs, emissions and benefiting from superior technology are all a part of the Nissan LEAF package; I guess that’s why it stands for ‘Leading, Environmentally, Affordable, Family’.
