Why The Nissan LEAF is Still A Good Buy In 2023*

From Transport Evolved.

[Edit: Due to an unexpected power cut while we were trying to remedy and issue with this, we were forced to re-upload this video. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.


We – like many YouTube channels and news outlets, have discouraged people from buying the Nissan LEAF as a used car, primarily due to concerns over battery degradation and rapid charging capabilities.

But the reality is that for many buyers, the Nissan LEAF is an ideal first (or second) car.

Here’s why we’ve changed our minds.
