Nissan Leaf 2017
Carsguide Contributing journalist Peter Anderson had this to say at the time: The Leaf is a long way from reaching our shores, probably late 2018. Australia just isn't a big market for the Leaf and in Japan alone the first month of sales has yielded 9000 orders, which is a cracking start by any measure.You can read the full review here.

Nissan Leaf 2017 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Leaf here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What are the best economical small used cars?
It’s a fact of life, Ted, that fuel-efficiency has been a big focus for car-makers in the last decade. So, the most economical models tend to be the newer ones which tap into better technology (such as stop-start functions) and improved engine and driveline designs.
But beyond the improvements in petrol-engine technology, diesel engines have brought some big improvements, as have hybrid vehicles. The real headline makers have been, of course, the plug-in electric vehicles which are now available second-hand for sensible money. I’ve seen Nissan Leafs for sale for less than $20,000 and the plug-in hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV for similar money.
If economy is your number-one aim, stay away from all-wheel-drive cars as the extra driveline friction requires more power and, therefore, fuel to drive it. And don’t forget that how you drive, where you drive and even whether you check you tyre pressure regularly can also have a huge effect on your ultimate fuel economy.Show more
