Those who have purchased the eco-friendly car have reported a significant difference in running costs. The eco-friendly car is tax free and 40 percent cheaper to run in comparison to other diesel or petrol powered cars. Drivers can also expect to save around £1,000 when travelling over the distance of 10,000 miles.

In fact, British Gas now offer a 16Amp data-enabled HCU (Home Charging Unit) which has the ability to fully charge the Leaf within just eight hours, making charging at home easy and convenient.

The Leaf is available in a choice of three trims; the Acenta, Visia and Tekna, and you can expect large boot space in them all thanks to the relocation of the charging point. All models are fully equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen complete with sat-nav, which incorporates details of range and charging points. The Leaf also offers Bluetooth so you can monitor air-con and charging levels via mobile phone, as well as automatic lights and wipers, LED headlamps, privacy glass and a rear parking camera.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
