LONDON – The new 2018 Nissan LEAF has been named 'Best Electric Car' in the annual DieselCar and EcoCar awards in the UK, a celebration of the most capable new cars on sale today.The DieselCar and EcoCar editorial team evaluated more than 175 new cars in real-world conditions using a comprehensive road test scoring system to create the final rankings."If you want a barometer of the electric vehicle landscape, you can't do much better than have a look at the new LEAF," said Ian Robertson, editor of DieselCar and EcoCar Magazine. "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 Directordavid.jackson@nissan.co.uk Phone: 01923 899933 Mobile: 07966 878665Dominic Vizor Product Communications Managerdominic.vizor@nissan.co.uk Phone: 01923 899938 Mobile: 07580 999016Martin Bayntun Corporate Communications Managermartin.bayntun@nissan.co.uk Phone: 01923 899932 Mobile: 07989 666412For more information about Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.’s products, services and our commitment to sustainable mobility, visit Nissan-Global.com.
