Nissan electric cars

Electric-car pioneer Nissan is well known for its Leaf hatchback, but its zero-emissions range is now starting to expand into other areas of the market

Nissan electric concepts

Nissan was one of the first big car manufacturers to embrace electric power and its well-known Leaf family hatchback was one of the first truly affordable zero-emissions models to go on sale. The Leaf is now well into its second generation and will soon be joined by the next generation of Nissan electric vehicles, including the swoopy Ariya family SUV and practical Townstar delivery van. Follow the links below to read more about Nissan's electric models.

Nissan Ariya

Nissan Ariya

Arriving in the UK in early 2022, the Ariya will be Nissan's challenger to models like the Skoda Enyaq iV and Mercedes EQA in the electric family SUV class. Sporting sleek, eye-catching styling, it will offer a variety of battery sizes for a driving range of up to 310 miles, as well as a choice of two or four-wheel drive. Read more about the Ariya here.

For a long time one of the only options available to those looking for a seven-seat electric car, the passenger version of the Nissan e-NV200 electric van won't be on sale for much longer. It has not yet been confirmed if it'll be replaced by a variant of the Townstar (see below), but it seems likely. Read more about the e-NV200 Combi and Evalia here.

Nissan Leaf

One of the best-selling and most well known electric cars in the world, the Leaf was introduced way back in 2010, before this second-generation model arrived in 2017. It currently offers a choice of two different battery sizes in a practical family hatchback body, and while its interior is starting to feel a little behind the times, it's still a solid electric-car choice.

Nissan Townstar electric van

Nissan Townstar

Delivery vans are going electric in a big way, but Nissan was one of the first to cotton on to this trend with its e-NV200 van. That long-serving model is set to be replaced in early 2022 by the all-new Townstar: a sister model of the Renault Kangoo E-TECH and Mercedes eCitan. Read more about the Townstar here.
