About the Nissan Leaf
The Nissan LEAF is one of the most purchased electric cars in the Kenyan market. Unlike hybrid/plug-in hybrid cars that have petrol engines to fall back on when their batteries get depleted, the LEAF relies fully on an all-electric powertrain. It was introduced in 2010, and has since won several awards like the “2010 Green Car Vision Award”, the “2011 European Car of the Year Award”, the “2011 World Car of the Year Award”, the “2011–2012 Car of the Year Japan Award” and the “2018 World Green Car Award”. That says a lot about the value it offers. The Nissan LEAF was among the first electric cars to break into the mainstream Kenyan market.
If you are thinking about buying a used Nissan LEAF for sale in Nairobi, the following information will help you make up your mind:
What are the main features of the Nissan LEAF?
Its front droops down to the bumper as there is no need to cover a radiator. Headlights are also mounted high on the fenders and sweep back to the windshield base. Its interior also looks futuristic and hi-tech, offering a host of features that may include including full power accessories, keyless ignition and entry, a 3.3 kW onboard charger and heated mirrors. The most recent models may also feature a six-way adjustable driver seat and a tilt-only heated steering wheel. Instead of a shift lever, there is a mouse-shaped driving mode selector on the tunnel.
How spacious is the Nissan LEAF?
There are two rows within the LEAF that provide sufficient room for five occupants. Each row also gives ample head and legroom for five occupants. In most models, there are complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors within the rear outboard seats and a middle-seat tether anchor. As for cargo space, most models offer at least 680 liters of cargo space; that space can increase to over 1,000 liters when the rear seats are folded down.
Is the Nissan LEAF fuel efficient?
Being an electric car, the LEAF’s efficiency is dependent on its range. The LEAF models made from 2016 – 2017 feature a 3O kWh battery that provides 172 kilometers of range when fully charged. Currently, the cost of electricity in Kenya is approximately sh25 per kWh, so you will spend sh750 to fully recharge these LEAF models. That translates to sh4.3 per kilometer, which is way better than a cost of sh8.86 per kilometer for petrol cars (assuming they achieve an average fuel economy of 15km/l and also assuming that petrol [super] costs sh133 per liter). The LEAF can be recharged at home through a 220-volt outlet; the same may take seven hours with a LEAF’s onboard 3.3 kW charging connector.
What is the ground clearance of the Nissan LEAF?
The ground clearance of the Nissan LEAF is 160 mm, which is higher than most of its competitors in the same segment. It is great for the city, but not ideal for upcountry roads.
Can you find spare parts for a used Nissan LEAF in Kenya?
Given that electric cars like the Nissan LEAF are still not common on our roads, it may be a challenge to find used parts. New ones, however, can be sourced at Nissan dealerships.
Is the Nissan LEAF a reliable car? Does it Have Good Resale Value?
Yes, the LEAF is a reliable car. When well taken care of, it will not require much in terms of repairs. Its lithium-ion batteries can last up to 240,000 kilometers, which is plenty for most people.
Overall, the Nissan LEAF is a civilized car with very low running costs. Apart from the limited driving range, it is one of the best options for urban errands. The local infrastructure does not yet allow for widespread electrical charging, so this model would only be appropriate in major cities at this time. The fact that it is an electric model in the Kenyan market also significantly drives up the value, so the resale should be good.
