AAA Calms Range Anxiety of LEAF, EV Owners With Mobile Car Charging Trucks

June 28th, 2011

Range Anxiety (noun): A plug-in electric vehicle (EV) owner’s constant fear of running out of juice while on the go, becoming stranded with no power source in sight.

With today’s newly released EVs, like the 2011 Nissan LEAF and up-coming Mitsubishi i-MiEV (good for a limited range of around 100 miles or less), any owner or prospective owner must be familiar with the idea of range anxiety.

The roadside assistance guardian angels at the Automobile Association of America are rolling out a new program to address such emergencies, using mobile charging trucks equipped with the latest Level 3 quick-charging technology. Just like with a flat tire or running out of gas, a call to AAA will soon bring help to get you and your electric car back on your way.

AAA has kept the pulse of the ever-changing automotive industry, and that continues today as we ready AAA s emergency road service operations to address the emerging electric vehicle market, said AAA’s John Nielsen.

More details will come at the Plug-In 2011 Conference Exposition in North Carolina next month at the official unveiling. AAA promises its first mobile EV charging trucks will be in operation by the end of the summer.

Kudos to AAA for stepping up to the plate and offering this service.  If you don t already have a AAA membership, you should. The benefits far outweigh the cost.

Nissan LEAF Nismo RC Hits The Track (In-Car Video Inside)

June 20th, 2011

Nissan is taking its electric vehicle technology to the track with the hot new Nissan LEAF NISMO RC dedicated electric race car. The car, which recently excited fans at a track demonstration the weekend of the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, has a shortened wheelbase compared to the 2011 Nissan LEAF and is also longer, wider and lower.

Propulsion comes from an 80kW AC synchronous motor making 107 horsepower and a 207 lb-ft. of torque .

At just 2,068 pounds—40% lighter than the production 2011 Nissan LEAF —the NISMO LEAF RC accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 6.85 seconds and tops out at 93 mph.

While the car is only a technology demo prototype for now, expect Nissan’s next-generation electric motor technology to make it onto a production car some time in the not-so-distant future.

2011 Nissan LEAF Wins World Car of the Year Award

FAW electric vehicles

May 9th, 2011

A panel of 66 automotive journalists from 24 countries concluded that the Nissan LEAF is the 2011 “World Car of the Year.” The car beat out the BMW 5-series. the Audi A8 and 34 other automobiles. It can be said that the honor helps to validate electric cars in general because the LEAF beat out such other high technology vehicles like the Aston Martin Rapide, the Peugeot RCZ and the Volvo S60.

In the meantime, the Leaf finished third in the World Green Car Category. The winner was the BMW 320d. followed by the Chevrolet Volt. Some might find it odd that the Leaf would win the “World Car of the Year” but not the “World Green Car.” Perhaps the judges wanted to honor the concept of a viable production electric car more so than a particular model.

For performance freaks, it is no surprise that the Ferrari 458 Italia was named the World Performance Car of the Year. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG came in second and the Porsche 911 Turbo was third.

The Leaf is available now through Nissan dealerships in select markets with a $32,780 starting MSRP, before the current $7,500 Federal Government tax credit. Some buyers may be eligible for other government incentives at the state and local levels.
