Nissan was a pioneer where modern electric cars are concerned, launching the original Leaf over a decade ago. Things have moved on a fair bit since then, with Nissan’s electric cars also keeping pace with the competition. The Leaf is now in its second generation and has been joined by the plush Ariya SUV, too.

Electric Nissan car models: current range

Nissan only offers two electric cars at present, but with one being a hatchback and the other an SUV, it’s catering to the two most popular segments in the market, and both cars have much to recommend them.

Nissan Leaf

The current Nissan Leaf has been around since 2017, and its starting point of under £30,000 makes it one of the more competitively priced EVs on the market. That gets you the 39 kiloWatt hour battery, which is good for an official range of 168 miles, but the 59kWh battery is available from around £34,000 if you go for the Leaf e+, and ups the range to 239 miles. A great all-rounder, the Leaf is comfortable, swift and has a great range of safety kit.

Nissan Ariya

The Ariya is a much plusher proposition than the Leaf, with a cabin that can genuinely rival the interiors of cars from more established premium manufacturers. It’s also a handsome thing in the metal, and while the £46,000 or so starting price makes it a fair bit more expensive than the Leaf, it’s competitive against other EV SUVs. Two battery packs (63kWh and 87kWh) are available, with the larger one costing around £6,000 more, but increasing the range from 250 to 310 miles.

Nissan electric cars FAQs

The most affordable electric Nissan is the Leaf hatchback with the smaller 39kWh battery pack, which starts at around £29,000. The top-spec Ariya SUV begins at roughly £59,000.
With all new cars sold from 2035 in the UK having to be zero emission, Nissan will effectively become an all-electric car maker here from that date – although the firm has said it intends to beat that target five years early, offering only EVs from 2030.
A Nissan Leaf with the entry-level battery pack can travel up to 168 miles between charges, while an Ariya with the big 87kWh battery can cover up to 329 miles.
