Nissan Leaf review from Consumer Reports
The Nissan Leaf is the first mainstream electric car sold in America. It is pleasant to drive but its short range and long recharge time limit flexibility. Visit our guide to alternative fuels for more information on the Nissan Leaf: http://bit.ly/oaTyWy





The fastest way to charge your Nissan Leaf without power supply
When you talk about electric cars the first thing people are concerned with is the range and how to get the batteries charged when you run out of power. So Leafplan set out to find a new way of charging a Nissan Leaf: by towing it behind another car and braking to charge the car. The Nissan Leaf has brake regeneration which means it charges itself during braking. So in theory you can charge the car by braking while you are being towed. However, the Nissan Leaf manual states you 'shouldn't tow an electric car with four wheels on the ground'. The Nissan dealer was a bit sketchy about why that was so we set out to prove the theory and made this video. As you can see in the video it really does work! However there are some small differences. Because the car is being towed the range computer thinks it's driving ultra economical and calculates the range according to this. So the range the computer calculates isn't the actual range which you will have when you drive the car, it's about 33% less. However, the car does charge itself while braking, and actually does a very good job. It's about as fast as a fast charger charging the car. You have to be careful though not to overdo the braking; charging only happens in the first phase of braking if you overdo the Leaf will start to use the regular brakes resulting in very smelly brake pads ;-) Leafplan is a project in The Netherlands set out to find the practical use of the electric car. From how to get a charge point at your house to actual range calculations and experiments like charging the Nissan Leaf while being towed is all part of this year long experiment. On http://www.leafplan.nl/english you can find more information and follow the Leaf via Google Maps, check out the battery life, range and charge stats live from the car, and see live video directly from the car!

2011 Nissan LEAF Test Drive & Electric Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/leaf/2012/ The 2011 Nissan LEAF if the world's first mass produced battery electric vehicle. You can get almost 100 miles of range from a single charge. Nissan really pushed the edge of design with the LEAF. The car has been thoroughly tested in a wind tunnel to reduce drag and the results are an ultra low and efficient 0.29 drag coefficient rating. The 2012 Nissan LEAF is a great driving electric car. The LEAF has a base price of $35,200 but there are offer large rebates available from the Government that will help to offset the high price tag a bit. The battery pack on the 2012 Nissan LEAF weights about 600 pounds and is located towards the rear of the car. This gives the car a nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution. The result is a better driving and handling electric car. The LEAF not only runs on electricity which saves you money, it also is a zero emissions vehicle meaning there are no harmful tail pipe emissions that are normally associated with a gasoline engine. Heck there is even an 8-year 100,000 mile warranty on the batteries. The 2012 Nissan LEAF electric car is the future of the automobile in America.

Nissan LEAF Test Drive and Review
Nissan LEAF Test Drive & Review- Green Energy News had the recent pleasure of test driving the brand spankin' new, highly-anticipated zero emission vehicle (ZEV) developed by Nissan, dubbed LEAF - or Leading, Environmentally Friendly, Affordable, Family Car. Mark Perry, Director of Product Planning for Nissan North America, talks about the vision behind the Nissan LEAF and touches on it's eco-friendly features, cost/price, battery/charging information, and availability. The LEAF we drove is a pre-production prototype... basically the production model. This is NOT a "mule" or the VERSA "shell" which was making a tour across the US earlier this year. Design: Smooth lines, aerodynamic, and pleasing to look at. The LEAF might not be the most eye-catching car on the road, but we feel like it will appeal to most consumers in the compact car market. We saw it as a cross between a luxury crossover SUV (think Lexus RX 350), a Toyota Matrix, and the Nissan Versa. Performance- The 107 HP (80kw) motor puts out 206 lb-ft of torque which is readily available at 0 MPH! We were more than surprised with the amount of pep the LEAF showed off the line. At moderate speeds (approx 45 MPH) the LEAF had NO problems passing other vehicles with minimal efforts. Towards the end of the video, you can see the LEAF accelerating into a right turn, reaching speeds of almost 50 MPH from a creeping start with ease. The LEAF is responsive and fun to drive. Is it a sportscar... NO! Is it more fun to drive than a traditional compact... BY FAR! Handling is wonderful- the lithium ion battery pack is center mounted under the vehicle creating even balance and sturdy handling. Try it for yourself... this thing is FUN to drive! Price- $32,000 might be a little steep for us, but after $7,500 in federal rebates/incentives... the LEAF is right up our alley. With California giving us an additional $5,000 in rebates, the LEAF would be a steal at just under $20k! Considering the Chevy Volt is priced around $40k before rebates/incentives, and DOESN'T qualify for the additional $5k rebate in CA due to it's gasoline engine/generator, the LEAF looks like a solid deal.
