5. Nissan Leaf - up to a 239-mile range

Take a test drive

Another excellent choice if you’re keen on beating the ULEZ charges or just drastically reducing your carbon footprint while eliminating your monthly fuel bills, is the Nissan Leaf. The latest Leaf model looks the business and has an extremely impressive electric range of 168 miles in the standard model and up to 239 miles in the more expensive E+ model, the latter also has 217 PS of power - making it really rather rapid. With a quick charger, the Leaf takes just 60 minutes to go from 20% of charge to 80%, which is hard to criticise. The new Leaf is on sale now with prices from £26,345 for the Acenta model.

40kWh 150PS Acenta for £266 x 36 months at 4.9% APR.
40kWh 150PS N-Connecta for £296 x 36 months at 4.9% APR
