Also, the battery will take only one rapid charge per day to prevent overheating. I bought a pre-owned PHEV to tide me over until the Volkswagen ID3 comes out. This is a good reduction but if you can hang on for a year there's going to be a much bigger choice of cars available.


I have this car. I have had the software upgrade that allows 2 or 3 rapid charges without any throttling. So the rapid charge issue no longer will affect 99% of Leaf owners.
There’s no denying that this is a great car for the money.

Yes for more money you can get a Kona 64 or ENiro 64. Hold on you can’t as the have 12 month or more wait times. The new Zoe 50kw isn’t out until the Autumn. The VWs will be early next year and prices still not available.

People also compare the Leaf 40 to the Tesla Model 3. That’s chalk and cheese. This car at £27k is £13 k cheaper than the Tesla!

if you want an EV for less than £30k and you want it within 4-6 weeks then your options are very limited

if you want a cheap EV the buy the new (unproven but supposedly very good) MG EV for about £23k. If you want a nice fully loaded EV from a mainstream marque then grab this Tekna. Oh and don’t forget that many Nissan dealers offer Free rapid charging for Leaf owners. On this point I travelled from Devon to the Isle of Wight using a free rapid charge in Wincanton and then Southampton. Then on the return at Southampton and Wincanton. Approx 500Miles of travel and the cost of the journey . Zero.

I get the sense we are in a bit of a holding pattern with cars at the moment. The traditional combustion engine looks to have one foot through the exit but the electrics/hybrids don't have the same ease of refuelling and seem expensive at the moment. Future residual values look doubtful on both for the long-term buyer. No option looks that attractive at present and it feels like we are awaiting some new technology to come along.
Or save another £5K and buy a MG ZS EV

Agreed... There's alot of good cars on the horizon EV wise. But thought this was good value for anyone looking for a "family sized" EV today & not Tesla 40k money....& 5yrs warranty

Recent really detailed bit of journalism that confirmed every lurking suspicion I've had about going EV.
thetimes.co.uk/art…ghx
Times is paywalled but seems you can read an article per day.
And despite some UK fanboyism about Tesla, there are many horror stories about getting any kind of after sales service. Like an 8 month wait for a front windscreen.

Agree. Nissan used to lead the eV space but seems to have fallen a step back from the others or the others have caught up. The interior is showing its age

You had to charge it 5 times after you'd set off to cover 500 miles?
How long did that take?


"I travelled from Devon to the Isle of Wight using a free rapid charge in Wincanton and then Southampton. Then on the return at Southampton and Wincanton. Approx 500Miles of travel."

@QPRdevon that's exactly what you said
Edited by: "GR8M8U" 17th Aug
so a vw up can be got for around 10k new,
engine and fuel and exhaust must be around 1k of that price

so if a small lithium battery pack which can do 100 miles costs about 4k and an electric motor and controller cost say 3k
that means vw could sell an electric vw Up car for 16k fairly easy ,and thats before a grant is taken off
Edited by: "lumsdot" 17th Aug
Still seems expensive for a leaf. I paid less than £19k for what was the top spec leaf 2 years ago. Yes it has smaller battery but that's what happens with this tech.

Hybrids such as the long standing offerings from Toyota and Lexus are far better in terms of flexibility, and provide stress free motoring. The only downsides are the poor infotainment systems and CVTs that let down otherwise excellent cars. Until the UK have working and fast charging points readily available, I for one will be staying clear of full EVs.

Still failing to see the benefits here.. more expensive than an entry level hatchback with a combustion engine without the hassle of recharging. Might be a good EV deal but still think petrol/diesel is a better option.

Will drop in around 3 years as it becomes more standard
Nissan missed a huge opportunity with this car. It's basically the old leaf with a higher capacity battery and more powerful motor. Should have had battery cooling too.
Unfortunately they are still too expensive for most people's usage pattern, unless you drive in the congestion charge zone or do large mileages eg 100 miles a day EVs really aren't justifiable yet
It's a shame, as they are fun to drive.

CVTs are belt driven and I find are fine in town at low speeds, at higher speeds the engine revs much higher as they hold the revs more than in standard step autos and have been described as screaming and whining by car journalists. They are usually more reliable with less moving parts, the pulleys can wear out and I'd keep to a regular maintenance schedule.

I do agree with you that in 12 months there will be a lot more choice and the availability of chargers will be a lot better. I'll be changing my car this time next year and am very seriously considering an EV. By then I hope that Jag have fixed the many software bugs on the I-Pace and Merc have I increased the range of the EQC, otherwise I'll be looking at a Tsla model 3 or Y if they are out by then.
