Nissan LEAF 'BEST ELECTRIC CAR' at the 2018 What Car? Awards!

The all-new Nissan LEAF has been named 'Best Electric Car' at the 2018 What Car? Awards. 
The all-new Nissan LEAF is the first Nissan model in Europe to feature Nissan’s autonomous ProPILOT technology as well as e-Pedal. The e-pedal is used by increasing and decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator and allows the driver to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop using one pedal.
Since the previous Nissan LEAF, there has been a significant update with its new styling, advanced technologies and a higher capacity drivetrain which has increases both the range and power.
Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car?, praised the award-winning model, saying; “The electric car market has never been more competitive, yet the LEAF saw off all its rivals because it makes the most sense to most buyers. It combines excellent performance with generous standard equipment and low running costs. And even in winter weather, its real-world range is good.”
Nissan’s xStorage was also ‘Commended’ in the ‘Technology Award’ category, an accolade which recognises innovative new technology developments. xStorage is an energy storage system that uses recycled batteries from Nissan’s electric vehicles, allowing customers to store energy to run their homes, and even sell excess power back to the National Grid.
The What Car? Awards have been going on for 40 years now and are one of the most recognised and respected amongst car buyers. There are more than 114 cars which are judges against 12 different award categories. Alex Smith the Nissan GB Managing Director attended the awards ceremony to collect the award on behalf of Nissan. 
Smith commented; “When we launched the first Nissan LEAF in 2011, there was some scepticism as to whether the world was ready for a mass-market EV. Today, Nissan is the global leader in producing accessible, affordable, all-electric mobility with more than 300,000 electric vehicles sold worldwide.
We are continuing that forward-thinking approach and are about to lead the industry again with the launch of the new 2018 LEAF. This car embodies Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility proposition as the centrepiece of an electric ecosystem that includes energy storage, energy generation and infrastructure integration. We are completely revolutionising how we think of the car and the New Nissan LEAF is far more than just a mode of transport.
A special thanks from everyone at Nissan to What Car? for recognising LEAF’s many strengths and how it will be a fantastic car for customers to own, drive and enjoy.”

Ancaster Nissan Bromley were great because Damion was attentive to detail, had the product ready for us to test drive even though we were early and worked with us to help us get what we wanted as apposed to trying to sell us something we didn't want - an experience we had with another car dealer.

I'd recommend Ancaster Nissan Bromley because their service/sales people and helpfulness was beyond my expectation. Nothing was too much for them. I went for a used Micra, found one with the help of Damien, then I cheekily asked if they had one in burnt orange, and within 20 minutes they found me one. Now how’s that for service - and with a smile. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
