Nissan Leaf 2019
Carsguide Journalist Tom White had this to say at the time: With its tall asking price, limited government initiatives and geography working against it, I don’t quite think the Leaf is going to revolutionise the EV landscape in Australia quite the way it has in Europe. It’s still a compelling option for those who want to (and can afford to) jump on the EV train a little early, and who don’t necessarily need to traverse the distance between cities often. It also looks to the future of those wanting to smooth out their electricity bills or go 'off-the-grid', so the Leaf is certainly one to watch in this space.You can read the full review here.
This is what Tom White liked most about this particular version of the Nissan LEAF: Slick to drive, Excellent equipment, Charging flexibility

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
