Here is a presentation and test drive review of the 2016 Nissan LEAF with the 30 kWh battery in the UK.

The video uploader began with a "pretty low expectation", but LEAF was responsive, quiet, enjoyable and in the end was called a "surprisingly good vehicle".

The review includes a DC fast charging demo for Ecotricity.

Wondering whether it's a good car to buy? The video uploader said yes, but as a second car, because range is still too low at over 70 mph (112 km/h).

There is also advice to lease the whole car, instead of buying the car and leasing the batteries:

"It seems that the best option is to lease. With a relatively small deposit & with Nissan giving these a firm shove, £100 per month is fairly easily achievable over 24 months. I was blown away by how well they drive having had pretty low expectations. If I was buying outright, I definitely wouldn't lease the battery pack as it would be pretty off-putting to prospective buyers when I came to sell.."
