Nissan Leaf EV was once again awarded for its reliability after taking the title of the most reliable pure electric car, following a survey of the best-known British insurance companies.
The parameters measured in the result of the survey concerned the frequency of necessary repairs, often problems, repair costs and the age of the vehicle at the time of the damage. Similar models using internal combustion engines were also tested, with the Leaf coming in 7th place in the general classification.
The positive results of Warrantywise’s research on the Leaf came immediately after some official recognitions the model received for its second-hand pieces, which are on the market.
