First Impressions of the Nissan LEAF
The new LEAF offers an economic approach to motoring with countless benefits.
- No more petrol engine - the 100% electric motor means no more check ups, maintenance and petrol costs.
- No more oil changes - No engine, means no more oil. It also means no more transmission, spark plugs, radiator, belts…. etc
- No more petrol stations- No more filling up the tank on your commute. Wake up, fully charged and ready.
Exterior FeaturesThe Nissan LEAF offers you style and efficiency. The LEAF is made more efficient and aerodynamic by the flat floor, sharper nose and aggressively tapered rear end. It will still feature Nissan’s trademark V-motion grille and boomerang lights. This means that, though adapted to be more efficient, there is no compromise on kerb-appeal.
- Overall length: 4,490 mm
- Wheelbase: 2,700 mm
- Overall Width: 1,788 mm
- Overall Height: 1,540 mm
- Wind-diffusing side mirrors
- Continuous flat underbody
- Lower diffuser
- Aerodynamic spoiler
The bold and eye-catching looks of the LEAF car go further than making it stunning to look at. The advanced aerodynamic design allows the LEAF to glide through every journey with minimal resistance and maximum efficiency. Offering up to 235 miles to one full charge.
The sculpted and bold exterior body of the Nissan LEAF give it a modern and refined character and enhances the driver experience. Lower to the ground than its predecessor, the 100% electric LEAF is stable even at higher speeds. The curved rear bumper and aero-designed wheels reduce drag.
The LEAF sports the signature V-Motion grille and the simple, clean and sleek lines of the silhouette and make the vehicle dynamic. Projector beam headlights, with dual direct-lens adorn the front. At the back you’ll find the signature design of integrated rear lights and a sculpted spoiler.
The dynamic and smooth contours seen in the exterior design detail are also visible throughout the cabin. An uncluttered dashboard surrounds the redesigned information dashboard display. A simple configuration gives you quick and easy access to all the connective and assistive technologies. The dashboard features a matt chrome trim, tying it in with the embellishments of the leather steering wheel.
The cabin is even quieter than before. Improved noise reduction throughout further decreases sound from the already quiet electric motor. To perfectly balance this calm and quiet interior you’ll find a splash of vibrant electric blue. This splash-colour is present on the seats, door edging and steering wheel. It also features a matching blue flash of colour on the gear stick and power button.
The new Nissan LEAF is designed to be really functional whilst not compromising on style. You’ll find dual cup holders between the front seats allowing for additional storage directly below the centre console. This features a 12-Volt power outlet and a USB port. The 7 inch TFT display has full colour and is placed centrally for quick and easy access. TFT, short for thin film transistor, is a LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) flat panel display screen. This modern addition to the cabin sits flush to the dashboard and gives you easy access to an array of connective and assistive technology. It keeps you connected and looks super modern and neat. The perfect addition to a modern, uncluttered and svelte design.
2018 LEAF boot capacityThe Nissan LEAF boasts a really practical and surprisingly generous amount of storage space for a small vehicle.
- Boot capacity - 435 litres
- Low rear cargo floor
- 60:40 split rear seats
- Easily foldable rear seats
The increased size means there is plenty of room for a family and their baggage. The doors open nice and wide allowing for really easy and practical access. The increased dimensions also mean that the boot is bigger than a lot of its main class competitors.
Nissan LEAF 2018 TechnologyThe Nissan LEAF is introducing a whole new dimension to EV driving. At the touch of one button or the tap of one pedal you can adapt and control your driving experience.
Touch Screen connectivityAn adapted touch screen for use in a fully-electric vehicle, is placed to be easily accessed and highly usable. It displays a power gauge as a standard setting, whilst users will also be able to see Nissan’s Safety Shield technology and Nissan Connect. This allows the driver to locate the nearest available charging station. Making the fear of running out of power none existent. You’ll be able to plot your route around all locations with an electric charging station.
Intelligent MobilityThe new LEAF range is bursting with technological improvements. Innovative design and technology has been carefully balanced to give a highly in-tune driving experience. There are three main elements of Nissan's Intelligent Mobility:
- ProPILOT - top of the range driver assistance technology
- ProPILOT Park Technology - park your LEAF at the touch of a button
- e-Pedal as standard - start, accelerate and decelerate and stop with one pedal
ProPilot allows for autonomous driving functionality. It keeps your vehicle at a preset distance from the car in front whilst keeping you centered in your lane. The smart assistive technology also includes the following:
- Intelligent Cruise Control
- Intelligent Lane Intervention

Mr Peter Oakley
Nissan Leaf Electric
I was looking to change my previous car, which was a Fiat Croma, as I was looking for a car
which was slightly more economical, and one that would help me cut down monthly driving costs. As I am a low mileage driver, the 100% electric Nissan LEAF was just what I was looking for. There was a great deal that surprised me about the car, and it was much better than I originally expected, however what initially attracted me to the LEAF was its attractive looks and its excellent economical performance. If there was one thing I would change about the LEAF is to increase the range, however that doesn’t affect me considering that I am a low mileage driver. The LEAF suits my life very well as it is an ideal city car, and I get to deal with a local West Way garage!
Nissan Electric Leaf Acenta
I brought the Nissan Leaf after taking my brothers electric car for a spin, like most people I had heard
a lot about the new technology of electric cars but I had my own reservations to committing to new technology – which is always scary! After test driving the electric car I instantly knew I wanted one – it’s by far the best drive to date! The Nissan leaf is very powerful, unbelievably quiet and very easy to drive – this is the new generation from petrol and diesel cars! I previously owned a Volvo S80 D5 for 10 years and was looking for a change to save money on fuel costs, service and repair costs. Not only have I saved £70 pounds a week on petrol but I have also saved a staggering £300 pounds on road tax- the Nissan Leaf is tax free! I have owned the Leaf for just over a week now and it’s everything and more than to what I had expected! There is plenty of room inside even with a car full and is equipped with Nissan Connect and entertainment system which is my favourite feature amongst them all! Not only am I able to enter the vehicle without my keys but I am also able to connect via Bluetooth and USB port without the hassle of going through CD’s. The Leaf is perfect for my everyday travels including my work commutes and my evening run around all in one charge! The Sat Nav feature plays a brilliant part with keeping me notified how many miles I have remaining as well as re-routing me to a nearest charge station. The only negative I have is there are not enough electric cars around and I’m looking forward to see a range of electric vehicles from Nissan. West Way Wolverhampton was very convenient for me with their flexible opening times; all staff members were very helpful and friendly with my enquiries.
I purchased a Nissan LEAF from West Way Oxford as we loved the idea of electric driving – never having
to put petrol in the car, being able to generate the fuel and with it not polluting in any way. The car is just wonderful, what I like most is the performance of the car and how smooth it is. However, what surprised me was how much we can fit in the boot! We used the LEAF for our family holiday with ease – it was comfortable and its reliability was just what we needed. The vehicle suits our lifestyle perfectly, the kids love how smooth and quiet it is (it’s hard to stop them falling asleep!) and as a family we are very earth friendly, so an electric car was a perfect addition. We chose West Way Oxford because of the vehicle’s price and the sales team. George was extremely helpful, his straight talking with no waffle or heavy sales pitch and he is the reason we have just returned to purchase our second LEAF!
I visited West Way Stourbridge as it is just around the corner from my house and was instantly attracted to
the deal on the LEAF and the idea of fuel saving by electric motoring, so I thought I’d give it a go! The car is great for commuting, and requires just a few charges a week but I can also use it to drive to London thanks to the rapid chargers on the M40 too. It’s quiet, comfortable to drive and comes with a reversing camera as standard (which really surprised me!). What I like most about the vehicle is the dashboard display and the speedometer reading. What I want to know is why more cars don’t have a big double digit speed display like the one in the LEAF!
Nissan LEAF Acenta
My new LEAF Acenta is very comfortable. I love the fact that it is so smooth, quiet and very roomy.
The boot capacity too, is more than ample for our needs. I was amazed with the acceleration and the high level of driver assistance equipment. My previous car was a Honda Jazz Automatic; having experienced a hybrid car, I wanted to try a new concept of motoring by using "all electric" power. The leaf appealed to me due to the fact that it’s very cost effective and suitable to our needs. It is an example of what other manufacturers will surely follow. It is appropriate for everyday use, as we only do local runs and our annual mileage never exceeds 4K. In terms of what I would recommend improvements on; having just got the Leaf I am not able to give honest comment at this time. West Way Nissan had the Leaf in the colour I wanted, the price I wanted to pay, and they also gave me a good realistic price for my previous car. As I live 200 miles away from West Way Coventry, my entire buying experience was one based on trust with the staff there. I had never seen their car and they had not seen mine. I cannot thank Mike Bradbury enough for his professionalism and attention that he gave me. They even delivered the car free of charge for me. The end result was; complete satisfaction with the car and service, and one happy customer. Best regards to all at West Way Nissan.
My New LEAF
I used to own a 2010 Skoda Octavia Diesel which used to burn about £200 per month in diesel. The
Dual mass flywheel went after 40,000 miles along with the clutch and I decided in the end to repair it and get rid and looked at other vehicle options. I read about the Nissan LEAF and watched a few YouTube videos on charging and then went down to West Way Nissan Wolverhampton to have a look. Cameron took me for a test drive, went home had a chat with the wife and then ordered one. Six months on it's saved me £2000 alone in fuel, maintenance, insurance, free parking and charging at Asda. Realistic range of 110 miles, 0.26kwh a mile, and a 0-60 of 8 seconds. I love it and i'm never going back to an ice. My 60 mile motorway commute costs me £1.30, compared to £10 in diesel in the Octavia. On Economy 7 or Solar, it would be nothing - and on Solar carbon neutral. Buy one, you'll love it and won't want to drive anything else. I've done 9000 miles since December and it's never let me down. I've converted one colleague at work to electric.
