Nissan LEAF priced from £397 a month

The all-electric Nissan LEAF will be available priced from £397 a month on a PCP scheme.

Free road tax, cheap fuel, free parking and no Benefit-in-Kind will also make the LEAF an attractive proposition.

And independent experts CAP have predicted the car will retain 47% of its on the road price (after the £5000 government incentive) after three years and 30,000 miles - better than hybrid and diesel engined rivals.

Charging the Nissan LEAF's batteries costs around £2 and the car has a range of more than 100 miles according to official figures.

In addition, electric vehicle drivers do not have to pay for a tax disc, are exempt from the London congestion charge and can park for free in some cities.

Company car drivers can save even more, as the Leaf does not attract any Benefit-In-Kind liability, potentially saving thousands every year in tax.

For example, a company car driver paying 40% tax and swapping a Vauxhall Astra 2.0 CDTi SE auto for a Nissan LEAF will find an extra £301.53 in their pay packet every month.
