"If you do, you'll see the huge progress Nissan has made with the latest-generation car, now boasting a range of up to 168 miles WLTP combined cycle (or 235 miles using the outgoing NEDC test). Charging the LEAF is significantly faster, with 80% charge achieved in under an hour, while improved performance and a much more desirable design is sure to make the new car more popular. And while EVs used to work for early adopters and people with a second car, the latest LEAF opens up electric driving for a far broader audience."Read the complete release here.     ContactDavid Jackson Communications Phone: 01923 899933 Mobile: 07966 878665Dominic Vizor Product Communications Phone: 01923 899938 Mobile: 07580 999016Martin Bayntun Corporate Communications Phone: 01923 899932 Mobile: 07989 666412For more information about Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.’s products, services and our commitment to sustainable mobility, visit Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn, and view our latest videos on YouTube.Get more information about Nissan in the UK here.
