    ARIYA named ‘Most Anticipated Electric Car’ and LEAF scores a ‘Best Used Electric Car’ hat-trick at DrivingElectric Awards 2022

    The people have spoken! The all-new Nissan ARIYA is the ‘Most Anticipated Electric Car of 2022’ as voted for by DrivingElectric readers.

Adding to the electric achievements for Nissan at the DrivingElectric Awards 2022, the Nissan LEAF was also crowned ‘Best Used Electric Car’ for the third year in a row.

DrivingElectric Editor Richard Ingram said: “The Nissan LEAF changed the game when it launched over a decade ago, and it’s clear there’s just as much excitement around the brand’s next-generation electric car – the Ariya.

“The cutting-edge SUV’s blend of range, performance and tech saw it crowned the clear winner of the DrivingElectric Readers’ Most Anticipated Electric Car trophy for 2022.”

Andrew Humberstone, Managing Director, Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd., commented: “ARIYA is a bold new chapter in Nissan’s electrification journey and this award is very important to us exactly because it is voted for by the consumer. We are thrilled that the public is just as excited about this highly-anticipated model’s arrival in 2022 as we are at Nissan.”

The all-new Nissan ARIYA is now available for pre-order with prices starting at £41,845. There are four versions to choose from with two battery sizes, 63kWh and 87 kWh, offering up to 310 miles of range (WLTP combined).

ARIYA offers up to 394PS or 600NM of torque, can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in just 5.1 seconds and has the option of Nissan’s advanced all-wheel control technology – e-4ORCE – which delivers power to all four wheels together with significantly increased torque.

Enhancing the customer on-board experience, premium features available include a panoramic sunroof, 10-speaker BOSE sound system, advanced Head-Up Display and an Intelligent Rear View Mirror.

Commenting on the Nissan LEAF’s win in the ‘Best Used’ category, Ingram said: “The Nissan LEAF has been awarded DrivingElectric’s Best Used Electric Car award for the third year running.

“Arguably the first mass-produced EV, the LEAF offers good range, charging and on-board technology, plus plentiful supply on the used market – meaning no single model represents such excellent value for money.”

Andrew Humberstone added: “I am so proud to see the continued recognition of LEAF in the important used car market. LEAF was a true pioneer for electric vehicles over 10 years ago and with the used EV market now reaching a level of maturity in the UK, it’s still being recognised as the clear leader for those looking to take an affordable step into EV ownership.”

The Nissan LEAF has cemented itself as a firm favourite of the used electric car market. The model’s generous specification, innovative and intuitive technologies, combined with practical usability, offer a great value proposition for customers making the move to electric.

Impressively, this is LEAF’s seventh used car award in the UK:

  • 2022 – Carbuyer Car of the Year Awards – Best Used Family Electric Car
  • 2021 – What Car? Electric Car Awards – Best Used Electric Family Car
