In the UK, owners of the first generation Nissan LEAF gathered to check out the second generation LEAF at the Electric Vehicle Experience Centre in Milton Keynes.

As one would imagine, Nissan presents first impressions that are all very positive.

Customers said that they are happy with their LEAFs and note they like the new one even more because of its 40 kWh battery (more range), stronger regen (and the e-Pilot mode) as well as the new look that makes the LEAF much more conventional in appearance. Perhaps even a bit sporty, dare we say.

Production of the European LEAF in Sunderland, UK is expected to start any time now as thousands of consumers await the cars (750 alone in France opted for special edition 2.ZERO).
