The Nissan LEAF was the first pure electric car developed from the ground up by a major manufacturer and it surprised many with the way it drove and the way it was promoted. It was made European Car of the year. The asking price undercut many more prosaic diesel hatchbacks and brought electric motoring within the reach of many drivers.

For £12,999 we have a Nissan Leaf 5 Door 11 reg vehicle saving £15,961 off the RRP of £28,960* in an attractive Blue Met colour. The £525 worth of fitted extras included in the price includes the stylish metallic paint. It is in excellent condition as you can see from the images.

To drive 100% of torque is available straight away. You can drive 110 miles on a full battery charge. 90MPH is the max but this car is not built for speed. Electricity is often free in public areas to top up the car’s battery or at main Nissan garages you can pop in for a quick charge to bring the battery life up to 80% in half an hour.

After narrowing my search down to two cars, I test drove them both and decided upon a Vauxhall Zafira as its spacious and ideal for my job and lifestyle. I’d recommend UnbeatableCar to anyone looking for a vehicle; the large range, attractive prices and brilliant customer service set this place apart from any other car supermarket.
