2012 Nissan Leaf – £8,344
If you (or your ‘friends’ down the pub) are under the impression Tesla invented the mainstream electric car, then the Nissan Leaf is here to say something about it. While not the first EV on sale, it was the first to make mass production and with over half a million sales so far, it’s comfortably the world’s bestseller. It just so happens to be the shape and size of the Golf, Astra or Focus you might be looking to ditch for the electric life, too. Lots of Leafs sold new also means lots to choose from used; an eight grand budget provides a wealth of options.
