The Nissan Leaf has become the first electric car to be crowned Car of the Year. The all-electric Leaf scored 257 points, and beat competition from six other finalists, including the Alfa Romeo Giulietta (248) and Vauxhall Meriva (244), which came in second and third respectively
 
The remaining finalists were the Ford C-MAX and Grand C-MAX (224), the Citroen C3 and DS3 (175), the Volvo S60 and V60 (145) and the Dacia Duster (132). The Leaf marks Nissan’s second victory in the competition, having taken the gong in 1993 with the Micra supermini.
 
The competition has been run since 1964. 59 jury members from 23 European countries voted in this year’s competition. Each country gets allotted a number of jurors which takes into account that countries car market share and car industry, with the UK having six jurors on the voting panel.
