Nissan Leaf gets award for cheapest electric car to own | The Driven

The popular Nissan Leaf electric car has been named the electric vehicle with the lowest cost to own in a five year period, taking home a coveted award from US car price guide site Kelley Blue Book this week.

With depreciation, predicted fuel costs, finance/insurance, maintenance/repair and on road costs taken into account, Kelley Blue Book found that the 2019 Leaf with 40kWh battery and 240km real world range was deserving of the “2019 5-Year Cost to Own Award” in the electric cars segment.

The award is vindication for Nissan’s only all-electric car, which is the best selling EV in the world (taking all sales since 2010 into account).
