The all New Nissan LEAF has won Best Electric Car at the WhatCar? 2018 Awards. With Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies such as ProPilot and e-Pedal, it didn’t win just because it’s electric.
WhatCar? Editor Steve Huntingford says the LEAF won because it “combines excellent performance with generous standard equipment and low running costs.”
In the Technology Award-category, Nissan xStorage received a commendation for technology that uses recycled Nissan EV batteries to store energy when prices are low. It also gives customers the power to profit by selling excess energy back to the National Grid.
Available on the Leaf N-Connecta and above, Nissan ProPILOT helps make things easier, from dealing with traffic jams to keeping your distance on the motorway.

How about driving with just one pedal? It's so simple! With the Nissan e-Pedal, you can accelerate and decelerate with a single, seamless movement. Just release the accelerator for automatic regenerative braking and depress again for acceleration. And if you ever need a more immediate stop there’s still a familiar brake pedal.
