The Nissan LEAF is truly an electric icon

A customer panel of over 220,000 UK car owners has voted for this year’s Auto Trader New Car Awards and the Nissan LEAF has been selected as the UK’s Best Car for City Drivers.

Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s Editorial Director, said: “The Nissan LEAF is truly an electric icon, and I’m so pleased to see it get the recognition it deserves. More than a decade after its introduction, it remains a great choice for so many people, thanks to its low running costs, great reliability, and reputation as an easy electric car to use every day.”

One owner commented: “It’s so easy to drive, cheap to run, and serves all of our needs perfectly. It’s small enough to zip through traffic and park in tight spots, but it’s never felt cramped. As it’s electric it’s also really nippy. We love it.”

Andrew Humberstone, Managing Director, Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd., commented: “I’m delighted to see LEAF recognised and voted for by customers to win this award.

“We are very proud of LEAF. It was our first electric car when it launched in 2010 and almost 15 years later, it is still popular and relevant. With zero tailpipe emissions, clever parking aids and its spacious yet compact design, LEAF is an ideal city car which is versatile enough to perform on longer journeys too where features like ProPILOT thrive.

“An award like this really means a lot, and we appreciate that our customers have taken time to vote for LEAF in these prestigious awards.”

Nissan LEAF was introduced in 2010 and was the first mass-market electric vehicle. The second-generation LEAF arrived in 2018 and continues to be incredibly popular with well over 500,000 LEAFs having been sold globally.

Built at Nissan’s Sunderland plant in the North-East of England, it continues to win plenty of awards including Driving Electric’s Best Used Small Electric Car award and WhichEV’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

J Edgar & Son Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 522976). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows J Edgar & Son Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only. We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
