When the time came to buy a new car for my daily 30 mile round-trip between home and the GRIDSERVE office I was tempted to buy a Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in-hybrid. A good all-rounder of a vehicle at a fair price with a battery that should enable my daily commute to be fully electric whilst offering space, comfort and an engine for longer journeys. And then I came across the Nissan Leaf, made here in the UK at the Nissan plant in Sunderland, fully electric, decent 120 mile range and great value – based on a lease and my estimated 8,000 miles a year.
