LEAF: EV first for 620,000 prospective users
Nissan’s Leaf has become the first-ever 100% electric vehicle to join the Motability Scheme – allowing 620,000 users the opportunity to explore zero-emission motoring.
The introduction of the new Leaf brings innovation to the scheme’s existing customers, combining the practicality of a normal medium hatchback with lower running costs.
Jon Pollock, Sales Director at Nissan GB, said: “We’re proud that the Nissan Leaf has delivered another first ahead of its rivals to become the first 100% electric car on the Motability Scheme.
“With a starting Advance Payment of just £999 and Motability Scheme specialists at each of our dealerships, getting behind the wheel of an electric vehicle and enjoying low running costs has never been easier.”
All Leaf models provide up to 124miles range, with a full charge costing around £2.
British Gas are currently offering a 16amp data-enabled Home Charging Unit (HCU) which will charge a Leaf from empty to full in 8hours.
