Think Electric Car test drive
The Think City Electric Car test drive was very fun, this is a small and
affordable car that will be available for sale in the US in the next few
months and we really look forward to it.
The fully charged car goes as far as 100 miles and it's a perfect weekday
car to go to work and drive around the city. The car was brought from
Michigan to California for a special event and we were lucky enough to
drive it. The Think City electric vehicle looks small from the outside but
is fairly large and tall on the inside, I felt really safe driving it. It's
a little noisy inside but nothing bad. The maximum speed is around 70 miles
per hour (112 Km) and they didn't want to tell me how much it would cost
but I have my guesses ($10,000 to 15,000) since, well, it's made out of
plastic. Another benefit of the body is that it wouldn't get scratched. The
car comes with a radio and has an option for a GPS, two things I definitely
need! Other interesting facts are that the battery lasts 100,000 miles or a
minimum of ten years, something other cars won't live to see! Lastly, the
first maintenance check is at 40,000 miles.
Think EV is a Scandinavian company that calls themselves "one of the most
carbon efficient car companies in the world". I just took a look at their
new Think City design and I like it much better than this one we test
drove. I hope we'll be able to see them take over the roads of major US
cities and our very own garages! What could be better than never going to a
gas station, never having to change the oil and never having to change the
filter again?! I also discovered that this car has only five moving parts
versus a conventional car that usually has hundreds of moving parts, making
it much harder to break and easier to find out a problem when it arises.
With gas prices skyrocketing (will it ever end?) it makes me even more
excited to drive cars such as Think City. Of course it can't be as fun as
the Tesla but it's an amazing automobile. Check out our Tesla Test Drive
Nissan Leaf reviewed - What Car?
Read the What Car? Leaf review
The Nissan Leaf is easy, fun and comfortable to drive. It's roomy enough
for a family, and it costs peanuts to run.
The very nature of electric motoring (range limited to a maximum of about
100 miles, eight-hour charging time) means that the Leaf won't suit many

First Drive | Nissan LEAF - Alert Sounds
When Nissan announced it would be adding pedestrian alert sounds to its
upcoming electric car, the LEAF, there was an instant outcry."How could you
make a quiet electric car noisy?!" people asked. Given that the political
winds are blowing in the direction of adding alert sounds to all quiet
cars, Nissan is really just trying to get out in front of it. But, as it
turns out, there's no real reason to worry. The noises are a non-issue and
are very unobtrusive.
I apologize for the wind noise, but you can still hear the sounds at the
end of the vid... and if you can't, that's because they really are that

Nissan LEAF Zero-Emission Car
Nissan unveiled the Nissan LEAF, the worlds first affordable, zero-emission
car. Designed specifically for a lithium-ion battery-powered chassis,
Nissan LEAF is a medium-size hatchback that comfortably seats five adults
and has a range of more than 160km (100 miles) to satisfy real-world
Slated for launch in late 2010 in Japan, the United States, and Europe,
Nissan LEAF ushers in a new era of mobility the zero-emission era. The
car is the embodiment of Nissans radical, transformative vision for the
future and the culmination of decades of investment and research.
Nissan LEAF is powered by laminated compact lithium-ion batteries, which
generate power output of over 90kW, while its electric motor delivers
80kW/280Nm. This ensures a highly responsive, fun-to-drive experience that
is in keeping with what consumers have come to expect from traditional,
Unlike internal-combustion engine (ICE) equipped vehicles, Nissan LEAFs
power train has no tail pipe, and thus no emission of CO2 or other
greenhouse gases. A combination of Nissan LEAFs regenerative braking
system and innovative lithium-ion battery packs enables the car to deliver
a driving range of more than 160km (100 miles) on one full charge*. (*US
