    Or so they hope. They simply don't have the manufacturing capacity to make all electrics.

    Actually that's not totally true now as they are aiming for solid state batteries and non rare earth batteries. I think their
    Hydrogen research is being wound down.
    I like the leaf as its a nice car. How the all electric will fair is interesting. 2 model sizes. 160ml range and a longer range 220 or so, but it depends on load etc so I expect, like internal combustion figures it will be 20/30% less on Ave.
    I love my hybrid so be interested on your take Al
    I suspect they're well aware that most sales are in cities where the availability of charging points is a stranglehold and infra structural costs of change prohibitive. Frankly I see hydrogen as the likely winner (at least in cities) in the medium term.

    Did you get it new? Good price? I wonder how it compares with the Zoe. Might check it out, though currently the Renault is our likely choice.

    Nice one Al. The new Leaf is much more stylish than the last one. Not quite big enough for a family wagon, though. But I am pretty sure our next main car will be an EV - I'd like a Tesla Model 3 but the family likes an SUV so probably waiting to see how the Model Y and Mustang-E pan out. Whether we like it or not, internal combustion is rapidly on the way out. I don't think manufacturers can keep up with the demand yet though.

    With Renault & Nissan being the same company, I'd assume (rightly or wrongly, but likely) that they're pretty much the same vehicle underneath?

    Main difference being that Nissan make sure their version is built properly unlike Renault whose cars are, to quote Clarkson, thrown together by disinterested Algerians
    Marantz CD63 KI Signature
    Project Debut II
    Pioneer A656 Reference
    Epos M5s
    Atacama Stands
    Maplin speaker cable cos I can't hear a difference
    Various interconnects as above

    The Zoe is built in France, but there may be a few Algerians on the assembly line... Not sure the nationality matters, does it?
    My car was built in Turkey... seems well enough built to me
