We’ve reached a Milestone
We’ve just reached a significant milestone. We’ve triple checked the numbers and it’s official, as of today DriveElectric have successfully delivered 700 Nissan Leaf!
We’re celebrating our Leaf landmark by offering FREE home charging units for all Nissan LEAF orders placed in March 2019 (Terms & Conditions Apply). So it might be a good time to consider joining the Leaf driving community if you’re considering the switch to electric motoring in 2019.
For a Limited time only There is also £1,000 cashback available on this vehicle at the time of writing (Terms and Conditions also apply).
The Leaf has been a trail blazing electric vehicle, we used Nissan Leafs exclusively in the ‘My Electric Avenue’ electric vehicle charging project, we’ve seen 3 battery upgrades since 2011, a brand new 40kWh battery model was released last year in 2018.
There are a lot of updated features on the new model Leaf to shout about, serial Leaf driver and broadcaster Mark Goodier shared his thoughts on the new model on our blog a few months ago:
Mark Goodier on the 2018 Nissan Leaf Model upgrade:
“The thing I like about it, and what all long-term Leaf drivers will like, is that as well as the bigger 40kWh battery (and 60kW variant to come) and the new shape, there are nice refinements that don’t get in the way of how good the Leaf felt to drive in the first place.
They include the improved infotainment system with very slick Bluetooth phone pairing and the E Pedal for one-foot driving (which is great, but does take a little getting used to). In practice most of us who use EV’s every day rarely use the brake anyway, so I think this is the way it’s going to go as we get closer to automated driving. And it may sound small, but I think Nissan’s move from Type 1 charging to Type 2 is a great idea. In our case, because both of our EV’s are now type 2, we can move back to a tethered charger which will be far more sensible than dragging cables out of the boot each time.”
The Nissan Leaf has evolved a lot since it first appeared in 2010, and there’s still more to come, a 60kWh battery version is expected soon! With new electric vehicles launching all the time and charging technology developing rapidly (pardon the pun) who knows what the EV landscape will look like once we’ve delivered 1,000 Nissan Leaf, we’re excited to find out!
