Most disgusting looking car on planet earth

This is beyond beleaf!!!http://s1.aecdn.com/images/news/gallery/nissan-leaf-battery-pack-survives-massive-fire_2.jpg

Think this offer is the offer is without the batteries. It's around £70 a month over 36 month contract to lease them from Nissan.

Requires 1200 x AA batteries.

Not bad for a electric car, gonna save on fuel cost, road tax and possibly London traffic fee.

I presume this is to clear stocks of the old model

Good deal. Would be even better if you'd get a government contribution on top, but suspect this is inclusive.

Also talk of 'leasing' batteries, sounds as bad to be as putting petrol in the thing. Any saving would in instantly reduced!

Wouldn'y buy one of these for hard cash only lease or hire, about 40% of resale is lost straight away on batteries which are replaceable after 5 years tops, so residuals plummet faster than a whores drawers..............

i test drove one
it was v good
heat great car
nissan give guarentee on sell back

Another link which also gives info on resale values, important for a new type of car like this:

parkers.co.uk/leaf

They drove one in fringe. It must be awesome (_;)

That's a great price! If I needed to only travel 100 mikes round trip I'd think about it

Awful thing, couldn't think of a better way to waste money!! Especially considering its full of very unfriendly batteries!

Are these the Long life batteries like the Sanyo Eneloop ones ? . Not buying if not, old tech .

Diesel tech still knocks these for 6 in terms of economy and performance. The carbon/energy cost for the production of the Li-on cells offset any on the road saving. Next tech is diesel electric / hybrid @ 150mpg as being real world tested by BMW / Audi at the moment. Then hydrogen, dodge these donkey electric cars at the moment if I were you.

As for RRP 27k+ - that's a 5 series 2.0d M-Sport or A6 2.0TDI S-Line..... are Nissan really serious? Its hard to tell when they produce something as fantastic as the GT-R then as awful as the leaf in the same production run.

Range is 124 miles. Adding a lunch break, 250 miles probably covers much of the population.

£17.5K? For those that can afford to be holier than thou, this is ideal. Two clicks higher than a Prius on the sanctimony scale.

Runs on clean green eco-electricity. Made from burning imported Russian gas.

The economics really make sense too, as long as our weakling government keeps subsiding every sale with our precious tax. God love 'em.

.

About the batteries, this looks like they are in the price and not leased as it says the RRP is £28.490. Which is the price for an Acenta with batteries purchased.

Doesn't seem like a worry to buy instead of lease because Nissan claim after 5 years they will still have 80-95% capacity.
However if they develop new battery tech in 5 years time, you'll lose out on that benefit.

Why has someone posted a picture of a burnt out car? There's no reports of the Leaf having a problem with fire. I can only assume that car has been set on fire, obviously any car can be set on fire. Trolls!

Nissan don't lease batteries, you buy them outright so there are no extra charges (no pun intended).

Your picture is missing 300 batteries

Only 840 there

Only if your lunch break takes around 8 hours as according to Auto Express thats how long it takes to charge. Luckily for me I'm a fat bunter so breakfast,lunch & dinner all combine into one glorious day long meal anyway .

What is the relevance of this picture? I could show you a burnt picture of any car. Infact, in that particular case the battery cells were unscathed.

Most electric cars use 18650 lithium ion batteries i.e laptop cells, bit bigger than aa and 3.7v and about 2500mah each
Leaf does not use aa or 18650

What they don't tell you is when the lithium battery's come to the end of there life around about 5 years the cost of new battery's are in the region of £10.000. Not such a good buy long term. The dealers would not discuss this with me when I wanted to buy one, just tried to bamboozle me with corparate information, dealer was claimed to be unaware that the battery would wear out. Hence I steered clear of the deal.

This does not just apply to the leaf but to any lithium or battery powered car. I have worked on electric powered traction machines for over twenty years, hence my keen intrest to own an electric car.

I`m going to wait for the Nuclear Powered version to come out.

Electric cars are not that green, due to battery needing replacing after five or so years and the fact that they charge from electricicty produced from coal or gas fired power stations
A vw up is probably greener

Its a very young technology and would be a bad purchase at present. After 5 years its resale value will be non existent. Replacement batteries would surpass the cost of the vehicle, add the lack of infastructure and its just not worth it.

Just the other day, us scientists said they could make cells with x times capacity and x times smaller. Give it a couple more years.

Sadly the offer includes the £5k government rebate. At £12,495 I would be purchasing one. I would still prefer a 150-200 mile usable range and to purchase the vehicle second hand for £4000 but that is not going to happen.

I went past the Nissan dealer and there where dozens of these on their side. Seems somebody was turning over a new leaf

Damn.. cue Govt tax hike on electricity -----> £1.40 /kW here we come.

And don't be surprised if your cousin 100 miles away doesn't let you charge your car overnight, electric ain't cheap!

May need one of these:
