100% Electric Zero-emission LEAF Debuts in Japan

of sales on December 20th

(Dec. 3, 2010) — Motor Co. Ltd. today the launch of the all-new 100% zero-emission Nissan LEAF, goes on sale December at Nissan dealers nationwide.

It be followed by the United States, in December, and in select European in early 2011. Release in global markets is set for 2012.


Nissan LEAF is a developed EV designed for the mass offering new mobility for a sustainable society. Achieving outstanding performance as a zero-emission vehicle no tailpipe emissions, including CO 2. LEAF is powered by a lithium-ion and an electric motor. It provides driving experience, delivering smooth acceleration performance and comparable to luxury vehicles in speed range.

It also superior handling stability by its excellent weight balance.

As a designed electric vehicle, LEAF supports the comfortable and completely new values that an EV With enough interior to accommodate five adults, LEAF features a driving of 200 km (on JC08 mode), enough to the needs of most customers. LEAF also utilizes an IT system, providing customers convenient functional support.

The of Nissan LEAF starts 3,764,250 yen, including the tax.

Overview of LEAF

An advanced EV powertrain supports zero-emission

The all-new LEAF is designed to provide driving experience with acceleration performance, quietness and stability. Key powertrain components

High capacity lithium-ion (storage battery)

Vehicle cost and interior comfort are affected by the battery. Nissan adopts a lightweight, compact, lithium-ion battery that double the energy density to a conventional EV battery (such as on the Nissan Hypermini, which was released in February 2000). 24 kWh battery capacity and maximum output of more than 90 a full charge provides a range of 200 km (on JC08 mode).

LEAF’s advanced battery utilizes a thin, compact cell structure. The simple of the individual cells, the smallest of the battery, allows a high capacity — along very practical and flexible without sacrificing interior Since the laminated cells a large surface area and cooling performance, stable is ensured in various usage

The structure also reduces through less parts

Since manganese, which is for positive electrode, is an abundant with stable spinel low cost and high reliability are

The battery pack is fitted the floorboard at the center of the body, superior weight balance and a low of gravity. In addition to enhancing rigidity, this helps responsive handling.


A three-phase AC synchronous motor maximum power output of and maximum torque of 280N#12539;m is which can instantly generate torque from a starting With Nissan’s proprietary control technology, strong acceleration with instantaneous — which cannot be by a gasoline vehicle — is Nissan LEAF’s acceleration in the low-to-medium speed range is to that of a 3.0-liter gasoline vehicle, and offers a maximum of 145km/h.

Unlike a gasoline no vibrations are generated by the electric This, along with and of superior noise insulation helps Nissan LEAF extraordinary quiet operation.

Since components such as the audio headlights and the navigation system are at 12V voltage, the lithium-ion battery’s of 360V for driving is reduced a DC/DC converter for charging a 12V

Special EV platform

A spacious environment is provided by the new, designed EV platform and compact battery. Nissan LEAF’s space capacity is 330L, provides room for carrying two golf bags without rear seats.

Information function to be always to EV


A global common ICT and Communication Technology) system specifically for EV is adopted for application Nissan LEAF. It not only on-board always-connected driving on the car’s navigation display, but supports EV driving even the driver gets in the car and after out by accessing a dedicated Website for EV via mobile phones (including phones) or computers. This ICT offers features unique to EV, driving history and battery management, remote control for charging and climate control, and management for the coming renewable era.

The NISSAN CARWINGS Center, an information control communicates with the car’s system via the onboard Telematics Unit (TCU). With the ICT Nissan LEAF owners are at all times to the data and information need to optimize their EV

Expected reachable area map function: checks how far Nissan will be able to travel, with steering wheel or by a single touch of the screen. function: tells charging via the navigation system when the remaining capacity is reduced. spot update function: updates data to display charging stations.

Timer function: charges the battery the owner wishes, e.g. at night when electricity are lower.

Battery check checks the state of battery Remote control function: the state of battery charging, battery charging, estimates to finish charging and shows a driving range, maintains the and makes failure diagnosis. climate control function: air conditioning via remote control so it can be on before the driver enters the Electricity rate simulation checks how much it costs for after driving.

Calculation calculates how much CO 2 emissions are to be reduced by driving EV. Ranking Nissan LEAF owners can compete with each in electricity consumption, traveling and the amount of charge produced by braking.
