    I have bought a new Nissan Leaf 2.ZERO and got it on Friday. I have only driven it from the seller to home so do not have any real news yet.

    That said, it drives a lot better than the old version and there are a LOT of buttons. It looks as though a number of the panels are the same, such as doors, front pillars and roof. The wheels and seats are the same and I believe the chassis is too, although the seats do have different covers.

    I have a myenergi Zappi smart charger on order that should be installed next Saturday. This device will allow even small amounts of my excess solar to help charge the battery.

    I will update as I get to use the car.

    Any chance of some pics or video Nige?
    Have you bought outright or lease/pcp/hire/borrow/auctioned children?!
    Did the dealer move much on price and did you get any incentives?

    20 questions on a Sunday! Sorry

    I'm thinking of buying one. In two or three years time, once somebody else has paid the depreciation.
    If it sticks, force it.
    If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.

    I am in the fortunate position that I could buy it outright. Mum died year before last and I used part of my inheritance. I expect this car to last me until Transport as a Service can take over.

    I obviously didn't haggle hard enough. I went armed with an on line price and asked for carpets, boot line and paintwork & interior protection instead of the lower cost. The sales manager agreed without a quibble. I then found that the shark fin aerial is an extra, then I want mud flaps and I suspect I could have got them included too.

    It drives far better than the 30kWh Leaf I shall be handing over to my younger daughter and husband. There's over a year to go on the lease and they agreed to pay me what I pay so that I could buy the new car.

    Do you have a link to what you bought so we can read the technical specs and advertising blurb?
