Try it, you just might like it.

That's what UK Nissan dealers are saying in an attempt to sell the all-electric Leaf across the pond. Nissan UK sent a letter to its customers saying that Nissan owners could use the Leaf as a courtesy car when their vehicles are in the shop, according to Green Car Reports. And the automaker stressed that this applied to owners of all Nissan vehicles, not just those who already own Leafs

"We thought the chance to drive the 100% Leaf might come as something of a pleasant surprise," the letter says in an oh-so-polite British tone.

A loaned-out Leaf with a right-hand drive? We'll take that.

      Brilliant marketing ! Way to go Nissan ! it may also have some effect on those who are put off by range anxiety. While experiencing the economic benefits of no trips to the gasoline pump, they might start to consider how infrequently the Leaf's range is exceeded!

        I think it's a great idea too. My VW dealer has given me a variety of vehicles while my work van was being serviced and I think it is a good way to promote vehicles.

      Great idea! Chevy should do the same with the Volt.

        All you get is a crappy Korean made Sparks anywhere in the UK, Chevy Spark is the UK crash repairs fleet courtesy car. Chevy only have 2 Volt dealers in the UK, it has 2 cars it has unsold on its lot for ages, they are used as both courtesy car/demonstrator/up for sale all at the same time at Phoenix Wimbledon South London. Chevy Volt sales are 22 in the UK, everybody is going for the more expensive Vauxhall Ampere in the UK

      UK has 24 Nissan Leaf dealers with sales of about half a Nissan Leaf a month at each dealer. Where does Nissan find the money to have 24 Nissan Leafs costing $49,815 laid up all year doing nothing? Truly remarkable Service, if any car company run their business like that they selling so few cars with such great service would become bankrupt instantly overnight. Thank god for the Nissan Qashqai profits that is subsidising this wonderful service two cheers for Nissan SUV buyers.

      Smart move and a great way to draw the contrast between EVs and traditional vehicles. EVs are virtually maintenance free.
