Terms and Conditions
Nissan LEAF 4-day Test Drive is subject to availability and eligibility criteria, and from participating Nissan dealers only. 1. By participating in the test drive, the driver agrees to abide by all terms and conditions set out
2. Subject to availability, a demonstration vehicle of the Nissan LEAF (the ‘Demonstration Vehicle’) is
available for test drive for up to 4 days from participating Nissan dealers from 1st April 2016 until
31st December 2016.
3. The driver must meet the Driver Eligibility Criteria set out below.
4. The driver agrees to keep the Demonstration Vehicle in his/her possession and under his/her
control at all times and will not permit any other person to drive the Demonstration Vehicle.
5. The driver agrees that by undertaking the test drive, they will comply with their Dealership’s
insurance policy in relation to the Demonstration Vehicle.
6. The Demonstration Vehicle must be returned to the Nissan dealership it was collected from within
4 days of collection of the Demonstration Vehicle from the Nissan dealership, or at the time agreed
with their dealership. The Demonstration Vehicle must be returned in the same condition as
received prior to the test drive.
7. The driver is responsible on demand for any insurance excess for damages, claims, demands, costs
and expenses arising out of the driver’s use of the Demonstration Vehicle (costs associated with
minor traffic grime excepted).
8. The driver is liable for any penalty, fine or fixed penalty in relation to offences committed in
respect of the Demonstration Vehicle during the test drive, any excess parking charge and any
congestion or similar charge.
9. The driver must not use the Demonstration Vehicle for hire or reward, conveyance of passengers
for reward, racing, pace making, reliability trials, speed tests and the towing of any trailer or for any
unlawful purpose. The Demonstration Vehicle cannot be taken abroad.
10. No responsibility is accepted by the dealership under this agreement for any personal effects or
belongings left in the Demonstration Vehicle and lost or damaged during the test drive.
11. No accessories or parts are to be removed from or affixed to the Demonstration Vehicle. The

12. Smoking is not permitted in the Demonstration Vehicle.
13. The driver consents to Nissan or its business partners using his/her personal details for
marketing purposes and for the administration of a promotion relating to the test drive (unless they
have indicated otherwise).
14. Nissan LEAF can travel up to 155 miles per full charge, based on the New European Driving Cycle
(NEDC). Actual range may vary due to driving style, road condition, air conditioning and other factors
outside our control. LEAF emits zero CO2 emissions whilst driving.
15. If you are planning on driving beyond the range of the vehicle during your extended Test Drive, it
is important to plan in advance a charging solution to enable you to do this. Please refer to the
relevant section of the Nissan LEAF owner’s handbook for information on how to charge the vehicle.
16. The Nissan EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment) cable with domestic plug is primarily
intended for use with public charging stations. When using the Nissan EVSE with a domestic
electrical socket, it is important to understand that LEAF draws a high continuous electrical current
which could lead to concerns if the electrical wiring and socket do not comply with the latest
national regulations; have been incorrectly installed; or not properly maintained. Therefore you
must not use any socket which does not comply with the latest national regulations (BS7671/BS7671
17th Edition/Commercial Premises – IEC60364 – plus has to be PAT Tested) to charge a LEAF. If it is
your intention to charge the LEAF while on its 4 days Test Drive using a domestic socket, and the
electrical wiring has not been inspected recently, it is recommended that the wiring & socket are
inspected by a qualified technician before charging. A ring main circuit – usually fitted within a house
– may become overloaded from other electrical devices which are operating at the same time as
LEAF is charging.
Therefore Nissan recommends that where a vehicle is charged domestically using a 3-pin domestic
socket, this should be done on a dedicated circuit, installed and tested by a fully qualified electrician.
17. Extension leads must not be used when charging the Nissan LEAF as most extension leads cannot
carry the required current and may become hot.
18. Do not touch the metal contact points of the charging port, charge connector or electrical plug.
19. Your Nissan dealership may apply additional Terms and Conditions to the Extended Test Drive –
please consult with your dealership for further details. Nissan accepts no liability if your Nissan
dealership is unable to provide you with a 4 days Test Drive of the demonstration vehicle. Dealers
reserve the right to prevent participants from taking part in an extended test drive if they believe
that the participant is not fit to drive. The Dealer reserves the right to decline or withdraw/terminate
the extended test drive and its use at any time without prior notice.
20. These terms and conditions and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with them
shall be governed by or construed in accordance with English law and subject to the exclusive
jurisdiction of the English courts.
Nothing in these terms and conditions shall limit or exclude Nissan’s liability for (a) death or
personal injury resulting from our negligence, (b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; and
(c) any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by law.
In all other respects, Nissan excludes all liability for uninsured losses arising out of or in connection
with your participation in the Test Drive and charging of the Nissan Leaf.
