New Nissan Leaf

As you know I'm very interested to know what the future era of cars will bring us, either electric or Hybrids cars. I would like to buy an electric car to get off this oil addiction we have, but like many people I have a few concerns. I assume that they will be the future of our streets, and the new technology will be for sure different from the other cars that we have seen till now.

Fortunately, many manufacturers are now interested in going green. Nissan has just has opened the veil of surprises with the New Nissan Leaf. The model is scheduled to be launched in late 2010 in Japan, United States and Europe. The new electric engine gives to the vehicle 80 kW/280 Nm, which runs 160 km (100 miles) range and according to Nissan meets the needs of 80% of the world’s drivers. For me and for my wife it’s perfect! The first couple of units will be produced at the company’s Oppama, Japan, with additional capacity planned for Smyrna, Tennessee. The lithium-ion batteries, will be produced in Zama, Japan, with additional capacity planned for the U.S., UK and Portugal. Pricing for the vehicle is expected to come in around $30,000 for the U.S. market (a very fair price).

The interior of the new Nissan Leaf is very attractive, the digital instrument board or drive controller looks very high-tech and well finished. Earlier this year Toyota and Honda released their latest hybrid cars, the new Prius and the redesigned Insight. Those affordable hybrid models have attracted lots of customers worldwide looking to reduce spending on fuel; therefore we should be aware that Nissan will also have a huge success. It is a time of changes in the auto industry.
