101708_1_5NISSAN’S all-electric LEAF has topped a list of electric cars published on the website AOL.

Reporter Leon Poultney chose his top five emission-free vehicles after the Government announced that it was investing £37 million in the infrastructure for EVs.

Leon wrote: ‘Arguably the first mass marketed pure electric car, the Nissan LEAF has sold 50,000 units worldwide. News also broke recently that the car is to be produced in Nissan’s Sunderland plant, further proving the Japanese firm’s commitment to petrol alternatives.

‘It is surprisingly roomy and once the odd sensation of zero exhaust note and instantaneous torque has passed, it proves a fairly peppy drive.’

February was a great month for electric motoring. As well as the chunk of investment from the government, it was announced that 50,000 LEAFs had been sold around the world, as Leon mentioned.

And the all-new LEAF was unveiled in advance of its appearance at this week’s Geneva Motor Show.
