Nissan Leaf e+ Tekna 2019 UK review

Nissan leaf tekna 2019

The is a new version of the Japanese brand's popular that has a bigger battery and a new motor. That seems like quite a bit, but rivals such as the and both offer closer to 300 miles of range for less money. Nobody is , or even a warm one. The new battery pack is also reportedly equipped with a thermal management system, which would be a big step up for Nissan. Imagine the queue and wait times if in the future you find all 16 charging pints being used and 2 or 3 cars in the queue ahead of you. Based on the report, the new version of the vehicle would feature a 60 kWh battery pack as expected, but also a new 160 kW electric motor and 11 to 22 kW onboard charger. I really don't know how we will solve this quickly, my local filling station has about 8 double sided pumps and you may still queue for a a while waiting to fill up - this is with cars taking 2 or 3 minutes to brim the tank.

The new Nissan Leaf e+ is exactly what it says on the tin: a Leaf, but with a bigger battery and a longer range. Still, what matters more to many electric car buyers generally speaking, those who drive into and around urban areas is that the ride is considerably less disturbed by bumps than in the i3s. Of more significance is the e+'s placing among rivals. Maybe Autocar should start to compare refrigerators, but only the ones hidden behind wooden doors. The e+ version of the Leaf is better in some ways and worse in others.

If one assumes electric cars have enough range that person can drive normally for some days, then problem about congestion of charging points - may become more managable. Nevertheless, this is a Leaf that no longer feels a touch out of its depth at motorway speeds, remaining punchy above 70mph. While you can have a Leaf today, those prepared to join the waiting list for a Kona Electric will get a better-value, longer-range proposition. It also gives you access to the supercharger network. The only problem with this Leaf is its proximity to the base Model 3, which goes just as far, is quite a bit faster and has the option to be upgraded to full autonomy later if that ever takes off. The technology, manufacturing and market all matured and now they are cheap as chips and the llosing technology has disappeared.

Either way, we are starting to see a real all-electric segment forming and real options coming to market. . Cheaper Leaf models make more sense. The Japanese automaker did say that a longer range version would come by the end of the year, but now a report claims that it will offer much more than just more range. The steering wheel squirms this way and that, too, while undulating Tarmac makes the car lose grip all too easily when its safety systems are turned off.

When , owners were claiming a real-world range of little more than 70 miles. The interior of the e+ is unchanged from the regular Leaf, meaning it has a wealth of equipment, reasonable space, acceptable material quality and no reach adjustment for the steering wheel. The eight-inch touchscreen display on the dash houses an old-fashioned, ugly and hard to use infotainment system that feels a decade behind the elegant system in rivals from Korea. Plus, a Kia e-Niro has a range of 282 miles and costs nearly £3,000 less than the Leaf. Its figure of 239 miles is good, and it will help make longer trips more palatable — but as most people drive less than 30 miles a day, the 168-mile range on the standard version is more than good enough for those with a conventional car on the drive as well. Other than that a tad expensive but look at the savings over 5 year compared to an Auto Focus diesel, and remember it's the top leather clad model which needs to be taken into account.

Perhaps one day they can incorporate some form of charging point into street lighting? People appear frequently to forget, not nearly everyone lives where person can park own vehicle directly in front of own - front-door. Yet everyone is supposed to turn electric - or are they not. A sort of love-in for mundanity. With Autocar, it seems to be perpetually pre-dieselgate. In a petrol or diesel, 215bhp is rather a lot in a car the size of a Leaf. For that you get 215bhp up from 148bhp and a range of 239 miles up from 168 miles.

Electric cars are improving and I'm beginning to feel that I'd quite like one in the near future, but there needs to be a wholesale improvement of the charging network first. Autocar seems to be turning into What Car? By the time , our sister publication What Car? As with the Kona Electric, however, this level of power and torque on tap from the get-go causes some issues in the chassis department. Leslie Brook wrote: Imagine the queue and wait times if in the future you find all 16 charging pints being used and 2 or 3 cars in the queue ahead of you. The more it grows, the more market share it should steal away from gas-powered cars. I keep hearing this nonsence time and time again - how convenient it's to charg home - nice to hear. In some ways, this defeats the purpose of giving it more power, but we can accept that most buyers will use it only in small bursts, when overtaking or getting up to speed out of an oblique junction, say. It's like people are either are entirely ignorant about reality of so many others that quite large numbers of people, don't have access to such convenience; or are so self centred they can't be bothered to focus on needs of others, merely reckon what works for me - is just fine.

That it isn't equipped with sporty suspension set up - probably is preferable for most buyers anyhow. I find this piece to be an exercise in hair-splitting and box-ticking. You'll be hours late arriving wherever it is you were hoping to get to. Hard to believe that the writer has any affinity with the forward-looking gear heads and tech enthusiasts who actually buy electric cars. Afterall just how often would you be prepared to pay £18 a gallon! Charging points need to be far more prevalent, need to be far more reliable and all need to compatible with all cars.
