Exterior :

Hybrids, and fuel-cells have all traditionally a distinctive style of body that has been nothing of awkward, and the Leaf is no exception. is function however, behind form, and Nissan calls it Fluidity’. That is, the merging of acoustics and freedom of motion by the design.

Though it may not have the attractive exterior, it definitely the statement: I m helping in saving bears and mother nature.

The silhouette starts at the low, hood, and moves through a shoulder line to mesh with the large, rear-spoiler. The bears a unique V-shaped effectuated by long, up-slanting LED The shape and angle of the headlamps reduce drag by redirecting away from the side-mirrors, reducing wind and drag.

The LEDs used in the headlights consume electricity at half the of conventional halogens.

The rear-end is also a matter of form function. The slim aerodynamic LED design and corners, combine sleek and efficient muffler-less bumper with diffuser, to manage the aerodynamics of the car, compromising interior space. The is also sans charging as the Leaf features charging access under the hood.

it may not have the most attractive it definitely makes the statement: I m in saving polar bears and nature.

Interior :

Step the 2011 Nissan Leaf and find that the interior is quiet, sturdy, and spacious for 5-passengers. However, after the Leaf you’ll notice Nissan calls the ‘EV Touch’

When you get in and power on the Leaf, welcomed by a sound reminiscent of a video game console Your eyes are immediately to the dash before the driver you’ll be looking at twin, meter display along a 7-inch information display in the dash.

For easy access, Leaf owners will most of their time at the instrument panel that information on the Eco indicator and speedometer, the meter, battery temperature multi-function display, remaining gauge, capacity level and distance to empty display.

The display in the center takes the EV feeling to the next level providing the driver with to the CARWINGS telematics system, allows Leaf drivers to use a phone app to access climate functions, set charging options and view in real-time a listing of charging stations.

If all this is scaring you – don’t sweat it. definitely have to sit in a Leaf and the EV-Touch a try before you realize the instrument panel and the center displays are dumbed-down for the average so they don t feel like are flying a space ship.

With regard to operation, exists little difference the feeling of driving the all-electric and conventional gasoline powered If you disregard the fact that driving an electric-car, the only you’ll really feel is the Leaf is extremely quiet, and only carry you approximately 100 on a ‘full tank’.

As far as performance if you are a rather un-spirited driver who has a commute of less than 100 (back and forth), then we recommend giving the Leaf a

The 24 kWh Li-ion battery breathes into the 80kW AC synchronous which brings the power of 107 and 207 lb-ft of torque. While seems like a minuscule of torque, bear in mind it gets pushed out instantaneously; mimicking the zip put out by a gasoline engine you reach about 35 mph. All of makes for a car that it is quick in the of stop and go traffic, but the car still a good 10 or 11 seconds to reach 60 and another 8.7 to reach 80 mph.

Oh, and you go and try to break some speed just know that the top speed is electronically governed at 92 although we managed to see 95 on the speedometer.

As far as goes, in a new MPG equivalency rating by the EPA, the Nissal Leaf 106 mpg / 92 mpg (city/highway), with annual cost estimated to be just

One major point of concern this technology is charging With the quick charge (a $700 option, which you can get at home), the Leaf can be plugged a public charging station and an 80% charge in just 30 minutes. at home through a 200V is estimated to take approximately hours which is more enough for an overnight charge you head off to work the next

As far as performance goes, if you are a rather driver who has a daily commute of than 100 miles (back and then we fully recommend the Leaf a shot. We can not say the same for the more spirited and long-distance

Overall :

The Leaf, with its MSRP of $32,780, can be had for as low as $25,280 a $7,500 federal tax-credit, and less after various incentives, such as the $5,000 offered by both California and

The Nissan Leaf has been to consumers since December, in Washington, Oregon, Arizona and Nissan said it has sold a of 298 units, for a total of 452 units in the States since its December – so there are people buying it.

Of many of you that are considering an vehicle as your new car have of this predicament. Let me just say if that is a legitimate concern of you’re better served at another vehicle, especially if no charging station infrastructure in area.

“Imagine the possibility of never to go to a gas station again. Or of paying than $3 for 100 miles behind the Or of creating zero emissions driving, said Brian senior vice president, and Marketing, NNA. “Nissan the industry by offering the first zero-emission vehicle for the mass Nissan Leaf truly is in a by itself.”

And while I m not to fond of eco-friendly coming out of the automotive these days, the Nissan made me realize that it is in a by itself. However, it does that than another car in its and class will do.
