In 2020, a British warranty company, Warrantywise, named Nissan Leaf the most reliable used EV in its research study. A post on the UK’s charger information site ZapMap of 4 November 2020 quotes Andrew Humberstone, Managing Director of Nissan Motor GB, on this nomination:
Not only LEAF is a brilliant choice as a new car but it’s a vehicle that truly stands the test of time and delivers many years of trouble-free, low-cost and emission-free motoring.
our top used electric car (=Leaf) combines all the practicality of a family hatchback with a smooth, near-silent driving experience, and all for a price that’s within reach of the many, not the few.
While more than 1 out of 10 new cars sold in Europe last year was a plug-in, the plug-in share in the European car parc remains around 1%, and the development of a strong second-hand EV market is crucial for the widespread adoption of EVs.
CHAdeMO, a key enabler of zero-emission mobility, supports the European and global efforts to reduce GHG emissions by providing robust and backward-compatible charging technology with the global identical connector to guarantee good charging of used plug-in vehicles to serve owners in any regions of the world.
