If you’re looking to purchase a new electric taxi, the Nissan Leaf is an excellent choice. Now in it’s second generation, it’s a great all-rounder, capable of up to 168* miles between charges.
This electric car is great to drive and with the benefit of the electric engine you’ll be amazed at how quiet it is! The new model is bigger, sleeker and capable of driving longer distance between charges.
When it comes to performance the 40 kWh model can reach 60 mph in around eight seconds – faster than the Volkswagen e-Golf. The Leaf also brings 150 PS of pure zero emissions to daily city driving.
Inside, you’ll find the dashboard is easy to navigate, with features like Intelligent Cruise Control, Nissan i-Key and Start push button. Adjustable leather steering wheel and drivers seat along with air conditioning and automatic headlights help make every journey more comfortable.
Every Leaf comes with an easy to navigate 7” touchscreen with features like NissanConnect EV navigation, DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring. Six speakers come as standard but if you opt for the high spec Tekna model you benefit from a premium Bose® audio system with seven speakers!
Up front you’ll find an adjustable leather steering wheel and height adjustable driver seat. The seats are mounted quite high – but there’s still plenty of head and legroom. There’s also a handy storage compartment for your keys or mobile phone and two decent sized cup holders.
In the back there’s space for three passengers plus the seats can split 60/40 if you want to fold them flat. When it comes to luggage space the Leaf is superior to its competitors with a 400-litre capacity – plenty of space for several suitcases!
