It’s all pretty normal in here. Nissan’s intention was to avoid scaring off regular car buyers with anything too weird and wonderful, so there’s little to tell the Leaf apart from a normal model and all the controls are where you expect them to be.
Interior quality is starting to fall behind the best in class, though. Hard plastics make up much of the construction and there’s none of the feel-good factor you get in the BMW i3 courtesy of its expensive trims and airy passenger compartment.
The Nissan's sat-nav can guide you straight to the nearest charging point
NissanConnect EV, standard on all but basic Visia models, operates via a seven-inch touchscreen and features a sat-nav system that highlights points of interest such as restaurants, cashpoints and charging stations. Along with that you can make hands-free calls, stream music and even pre-heat or cool the car remotely.
