The Nissan LEAF

The Nissan LEAF is an all-electric five-door family hatchback. It needs no fuel such as petrol or diesel, and it has zero tailpipe emissions, no clutch or gears, and is virtually silent to drive. It needs to be plugged in to the electricity supply to charge it and while the LEAF can go 80 miles* on a single charge, you are advised to consider how the vehicle would fit into your lifestyle and the charging facilities which are available to you if you embark upon journeys which are beyond the vehicle’s natural range. This could include, for example, workplace charging if your commute is longer than the range of the vehicle, or publicly-accessible charge points.

* Range may be affected by a number of factors including driving style, type of driving, topography, and use of features such as air conditioning.

The My Electric Avenue Project was delivered between January 2013 and December 2015 by EA Technology on behalf of Scottish and Southern Energy Networks (SSEN) as part of the Low Carbon Networks (LCN) Fund suite of innovation projects. As the Project is now complete, this webpage will no longer be updated, however you can learn more about the work undertaken by EA Technology at and SSEN at
