The city of Southampton sees an awful lot of ships.
There are cruise ships, cargo ships and, frequently, ships carrying lots of cars as they get imported and exported to and from the UK.
We know this, as we’ve walked up and down the quayside enough times to spot the difference between fresh sea air and cruddy marine diesel fumes.
This model comes with a larger 62kWh battery, which means more range at 239 miles on one charge compared to the 168-mile capacity of the other model.
And, once you’ve got it up to cruising speed the car is as good, if not better than its lower-powered offering.
We also made good use of the Nissan ProPilot suite of driver assist goodies.
