Day 5 

The children absolutely love the car. They are naturally environmentally friendly and think mum driving an electric car is really cool (yes cooler than the yellow Audi Quattro!) The dash is clear and spacious, there’s digital radio, reverse parking sensors, SatNav which will also tell you if you have enough charge to reach your destination and, if not, where public chargers are available en route. The boot is huge, the back seats and passenger seats are extremely spacious and its just so quiet. It’s a real thumbs up from us.

Just a word about the technicalities of driving the Nissan Leaf. It’s an automatic car, so no changing gear. Infact it doesn’t appear to change gear at all as the vehicle speeds up or slows down. I don’t know about the engineering of the vehicle, whether it actually does or not, but doesn’t appear to!

Its keyless technology so just pressing a button on the dash gets the car started. The ‘gearstick’ is simply park, drive or reverse and the handbrake is actually a footbrake. It takes a little while to get used to the position of the footbrake as its quite high but only used when parking up so not required  in a quick reaction context.
