So here’s the new Nissan Leaf. I don’t expect too many people here to jump up and down about this one.

And I read some pretty unflattering reviews of its design on the internet. To me, it looks like a lot of other modern small cars - and certainly a lot better than the efforts of some of its competitors. I’m looking at you, BMW i3.

But no matter what you say about the 1:1 - I think the Tomica model is great - with everything that I have come to expect from them. Crisp casting, great paint, lovely suspension and great tampos.

And an opening hatch - it’s all there. I just don’t know why they bothered with the silver limited edition. This white and blue standard one looks far better IMO.
