Sporty Nissan Leaf Electric Car

Nissan has rolled out a new electric car, Nissan Leaf. I like the curves of this car which look quite sporty. Although electric cars are usually small due to range and speed capabilities, the interior is quite spacious.

Getting an electric car or hybrid cost more than conventional car, that is why governments are giving incentives and tax breaks to encourage people to make a switch. Electric cars like Nissan Leaf do not use fuel but electric power from batteries or even solar energy. Thus, they have zero emissions which is a boon for the environment.

The electricity rate is about $2.78 to fully charge the Leaf (100 miles on a full charge), compared to the $2.90 per gallon of gasoline.

Nissan Leaf New Technology and Specifications

Nissan Leaf offer new specifications, features, and technology. See below.

* range 100 miles/charge, speeds up to 90 mph

* 5 passengers, 5 doors

* 120 V portable charging cable

* regenerative brakes

* vehicle-speed-sensitive electric power steering

* aerodynamic LED headlights

* Nissan Intelligent Key and Push Button Start

* Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System

* Nissan Navigation System with 7.0 color display

* CARWINGS allowing for remote connection to LEAF

* Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

* Nissan Vehicle Immobilizer System

* Vehicle Security System

One really cool feature is CARWINGS, a computer which allows you to communicate with the car via a touch screen interface, a web site, or your iPhone. If you forget to charge Nissan Leaf or a battery fail, it will send an email or text to alert you.

You can also get the Leaf with a rear back-up camera so you can back up safely, and even a solar panel on the back to help keep a small charge in the car even while you re in your office, working away.

One of the unexpected features is the ability to program an audible pedestrian alert to let pedestrians know you re driving a very quiet car in the vicinity. I m told there s even a third-party program to allow you to create and program in your own audio.

Despite the sporty design, you can’t take Nissan Leaf for car racing. It is a car for technologically savvy and earth friendly people. Nissan Leaf will definitely give the Prius a run for the money.
