As an electric car nut, I'd been itching for a go at Nissan's redesigned 2018 Leaf. The UK unit couldn't fit us in to the pre-launch European media event in January so I had to wait for this week's UK launch in Scotland. It was worth it. The car has been thoroughly reworked, with much more mainstream styling and an upgraded interior and it also goes faster and further. There's some great new technology and it introduces e-Pedal which means you'll hardly ever use a brake pedal again in one of these.
