Nissan LEAF® Wins 2011 World Car Of The Year

April 20, 2011

Latest accolade for zero-emission vehicle comes at New York International Auto Show.

At the New York International Auto Show, the 100-percent electric, zero-emission Nissan LEAF® was named 2011 World Car of the Year, edging out the BMW 5-Series and the Audi A8 for the top spot. The award is the latest in a string of accolades for the world’s first affordable mass-market, all-electric vehicle for the global market, which was also named European Car of the Year.

It is a great joy that the world’s first, mass-marketed electric vehicle, the Nissan LEAF®, has won the prestigious award of 2011 World Car of the Year, said Nissan Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn. This accolade recognizes Nissan LEAF®, a pioneer in zero-emission mobility, as comparable in its driving performance, quietness and superb handling to gas-powered cars. And it validates Nissan’s clear vision and the values of sustainable mobility that we want to offer to customers around the world.

The World Car Awards jurors observed that, The Nissan LEAF® is the gateway to a brave new electric world from Nissan. This 5-seater, 5-door hatchback is the world’s first, purpose-built, mass-produced electric car. It has a range of over 100 miles on a full charge claims Nissan, takes around 8 hours to recharge using 220-240V power supply and produces zero tailpipe emissions. Its low center of gravity produced sharp turn-in with almost no body roll and no understeer. The good news?

It feels just like a normal car, only quieter.

The World Car of the Year competition was launched in 2004, with winners chosen by a panel of automotive journalists from Asia, Europe and North America.

Nissan LEAF® is available in Japan, the United States and select European markets and will be released in other global markets in 2012. The vehicle is currently built at Nissan’s Oppama, Japan plant. It also will be manufactured at the company’s Smyrna, Tenn. plant in the United States in late 2012 and at Nissan’s Sunderland plant in the United Kingdom by early 2013.

Aiming to be the world leader in zero-emission vehicles, Nissan, with its Alliance partner, Renault, has formed partnerships with more than 90 governments, cities and other organizations around the world not only to develop and produce EV and lithium-ion batteries but also to promote sustainable mobility. Nissan is also taking a comprehensive approach to encourage to the world to more sustainable mobility such as improvement of charging service, infrastructure deployment, the promotion of the use of recycled materials and overall energy management system including second-life use of lithium-ion batteries.

Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com named the Nissan LEAF® one of its 2012 Top 10 Green Cars

Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com has named the 100% electric Nissan LEAF® one of the 10 Best Green Cars of 2012. The site admires Nissan LEAF® because it turns on our inner tech geek, while its starting price of around $35,000 reaches out to our pragmatic side. And above all else, it’s made from recycled materials from old cars, home appliances and plastic bottles, which quite frankly, awakens our inner tree hugger.

As the leading provider of new and used car information, Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com’s nod is a real feather in the cap of Nissan LEAF®. With rising gas prices, growing consumer awareness, and mounting government pressure, the green car segment is growing in importance and profile. Since just good mileage isn’t enough anymore, the cars were evaluated on the criteria of Earth-friendliness, fuel economy, extra features, value and comfort.

The no gas, no-emissions, 100% electric Nissan LEAF® impressed in every category, further proof that Nissan LEAF® is a leader in its class.

The editors of Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com drove nearly every new car on the market, so the Nissan LEAF® was up against stiff competition. But, the 100% electric, no-gas, no-emissions vehicle proved too impressive to overlook. The combination of eco-friendly and stylish practicality firmly positioned Nissan LEAF® on Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com’s list of the 10 Best Green Cars of 2012.

Nissan LEAF® Power System Named To Ward’s ’10 Best Engines’

December 7, 2010

100% electric drive system is first zero-emission winner in award’s history

Ward’s today announced that Nissan LEAF®’s 100-percent electric, zero-emission drive system is included on its prestigious ’10 Best Engines’ list for 2011. It is the first time in the 17-year history of the magazine’s ’10 Best Engines’ that the selection committee has chosen a power system which doesn’t have an engine and will never burn a drop of gasoline.

We engineered Nissan LEAF® to have drive characteristics that would impress drivers, whether you’re comparing it with other electric vehicles or those powered by internal combustion engines, said Carlos Tavares, Chairman, Nissan Americas. The inclusion of Nissan LEAF® in Ward’s ’10 Best Engines’ demonstrates that the Nissan LEAF® can compete with all top vehicles, no matter the propulsion system.

For 2011, 38 competitors were considered, marking the largest group in the history of the award. The competition included both naturally aspirated and forced induction internal combustion engines, diesels, hybrid electrics and the all-electric Nissan LEAF®. The editors evaluated the vehicles based on horsepower and torque; noise, vibration and harshness; the engine’s technical attributes; and their relevance among direct rivals.

The all-new Nissan LEAF® features a high-response 80kW AC synchronous motor powered by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery manufactured at the Automotive Energy Supply Corporation (AESC) operation in Zama, Japan, which is a joint-venture of Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. and NEC Corporation. Both motor and inverter have been developed by Nissan, and the power system generates 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque.


The power is transferred to the wheels through a single-speed reduction gear.

Unlike a conventional internal combustion engine, Nissan LEAF® delivers maximum torque from start, providing smooth, consistent acceleration. Performance in the low-to-medium speed range is equivalent to that of a vehicle powered by a V6 gasoline engine. This power system provides a highly responsive, fun-to-drive experience consistent with consumers’ expectations for traditional, gasoline-powered vehicles.

The 2011 Nissan LEAF® goes on sale this month in selected markets in the United States and will be available nationwide in 2012.

The awards will be presented at a Jan. 12, 2011 ceremony in Detroit during the North American International Auto Show. A full story on the ‘Ward’s 10 Best Engines’ is now available on WardsAuto.com.
