Nissan LEAF Acenta Named ‘Best EV’ in the 2017 Auto Express Used Car Awards

November 2, 2017

THE current generation Nissan LEAF Acenta has been named ‘Best EV’ in the 2017 Auto Express Used Car Awards.

This is the second year in a row that the Nissan LEAF has been recognised in the awards, having won ‘Best Used Green Car’ in 2016.

The Auto Express judging panel commented: “Electric cars are the next big thing in the car industry. In a few years there will be more choice in showrooms, but for now, there are some great deals to be had on the first mainstream EV success story, the Nissan LEAF.”

“An average commute will be more than covered by the 24kWh LEAF’s 124-mile range, but the All New Nissan LEAF is available with a larger 30kWh battery that increases this to 155 miles. With the cost to charge the LEAF at only a few pounds, it’s bound to save you money, and a used model gives you access to this technology at an affordable price.”

Thanks to the current Nissan Switch Scheme, which gives you an extra £2,000 against the part exchange of your car when you trade it in for a brand-new Nissan, regardless of the mileage and condition, Nissan LEAF ownership has never been more accessible.

With fewer moving parts, the cost of servicing and maintaining your Used Nissan LEAF is lower too. You’ll also benefit from a minimum 12 month warranty, and enjoy our Electric Vehicle Customer Promise for added peace of mind.

The Nissan LEAF was also one of the best-performing models in the 2017 Driver Power survey earlier this year. The LEAF was awarded Best Green Car overall and also came top in the Best Engine and Gearbox and Best MPG and Running Costs awards categories. Overall the car was ranked the 33rd best car to live with.
