The Nissan Leaf is Nissan's first all electric car and it won't be their last; the company has upped their spend on battery technology and is even said to be developing a hybrid GT-R for the near future. Until then, the Leaf is the flagship electric car in Nissan's range, and although it is as ugly as sin, it's the perfect form of transport for people who live in the city and drive 100 or so miles per week. Why? Because it costs nothing to run (pounds on the electricity bill every month), and Nissan have some rather tasty offers on at the moment to lure motorists in.
Of course, the Leaf isn't ideal for everybody; acceleration is slow, the battery range isn't huge, and the cost to replace a battery (which has a shelf life of less than 10 years) is thousands of pounds. Most buyers are on a PCP scheme with the Leaf, which is what we recommend if you simply must buy one.
